The Place For The Latest Movie Reviews
Cast: Joe Anderson, Danny Glover, Dawn Olivieri, Derek Luke, Evan Ross, Lela Rochon, Anson Mount
Tully (Joe Anderson, A SINGLE SHOT, HERCULES) just got paroled. But his first night out could be his last.
He just killed a cop. He's on the run. And no one’s going to listen to an ex-con with the Aryan Nation.
His leader (Anson Mount) just cut him loose, and as the police close in, Tully and his girlfriend (Dawn Olivieri) add home invasion and hostages to the body count. But no one counted on Mr. Walker (Danny Glover), an ex-con himself, to fight back – using his understanding of the racist mind to turn the tables on a desperate and violent man.
"Supremacy" tells the story of Garrett Tully, a member of the Aryan brotherhood, a white supremacist group. As the film opens Tully is being released from prison after serving 15 years for armed robbery. Waiting to drive him home is a female member of the group, Doreen. While driving the two get pulled over by police and Tully kills the man in cold blood. On the run they decide to enter the first home they see which houses the Walker family who happen to be black which fuels Tully's behavior even more. But Mr. Walker is an ex-con himself and he will do whatever it takes to save his family.
"Supremacy" is a violent, disturbing and shocking film about racism. Based on a true story it hits hard, there is not much in the way of physical violence but there is plenty of verbal violence that hits just as hard. And what makes the film even better is its exceptional cast that includes Joe Anderson who gives an amazing and frightening performance as Tully and Danny Glover who is terrific as Mr. Walker. The rest of the supporting cast are all great as well.
The film gets your attention right from the start and it slowly builds on tension and suspense because you never know what the two white supremacists are going to do next. By the time the film ends you feel affected by the story and it also leaves you thinking about it long after it is over.
"Supremacy" is a drama/thriller I highly recommend checking out. The story is simple but there is plenty going on and the film is a powerful look at racism in the world today. Available on DVD and Blu-ray with Special Features that include:
