It’s the early 1970s, and Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) is the first African-American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs Police Department. Determined to make a name for himself, Stallworth bravely sets out on a dangerous mission: infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan. The young detective soon recruits a more seasoned colleague, Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver), into the undercover investigation of a lifetime. Together, they team up to take down the extremist hate group as the organization aims to sanitize its violent rhetoric to appeal to the mainstream.

"Lee is a true auteur, and at 61, he remains a defiant, daring, gutsy, visionary filmmaker."
- Adam Graham, Detroit News
"A ferocious mix of prankishness and cold fury that is one of the director’s strongest yet most entertaining works in years. "
- Ty Burr, Boston Globe
"A kitchen sink and kaleidoscopic study of cultural and institutional racism in America."
- Oliver Jones, New York Observer
"BlacKkKlansman is one of Spike Lee’s most accomplished films in recent memory, and one of the best films of 2018. "
- Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times
"You leave this film shaken, remembering what happened not so very long ago in the name of "very fine people on both sides.""
- Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
"Veering from a blaxploitation spoof to an undercover thriller and ending with a no-punches-pulled real-life coda, BlacKkKlansman is riotously fun one minute, savagely biting the next."
- Philip De Semlyen, Time Out
"It is viscerally exciting, fun and saddening all at once."
- Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"As much a compelling black empowerment story as it is an electrifying commentary on the problems of African-American representation across more than a century of cinema."
- Peter Debruge, Variety
"Accompanied by an expressively lush jazz-blues score by Lee’s regular composer Terence Blanchard, BlacKkKlansman announces from the jump that viewers are in for a lush, sensory treat as Lee plays with the film vernacular he’s manipulated so adroitly and expressively for three decades. "
- Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
"Spike Lee's hellraiser about a black cop who infiltrated the KKK in the 1970s is also an incendiary indictment of our current Trump moment and one of the best films of the year. A cinema giant has found his voice again and the power to make it heard."
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"It’s alternatingly comic, heroic, tragic, horrifying, ridiculous, dead serious, clear-eyed, and confused; it shifts into moments of documentary and even essay film, but it’s also one of Lee’s more entertaining and vibrantly constructed works. I don’t know that I’ve ever seen a movie exploit its tonal mismatches so voraciously and purposefully. "
- Bilge Ebiri, Village Voice
"BlacKkKlansman is both hilarious and exquisitely direct, and had it been made before November 2016, you might call Lee’s approach a little alarmist. But if anything, he’s restrained. This is an angry film as well as a hugely entertaining one, and Lee has complete control over its shifting tone, minute by minute. "
- Stephanie Zacharek, Time
"BlacKkKlansman is a furious, funny, blunt and brilliant confrontation with the truth. It’s an alarm clock ringing in the midst of a historical nightmare, and also a symphony, the rare piece of political popular art that works in all three dimensions. "
- A.O. Scott, The New York Times
"Working with longtime editor Barry Alexander Brown, the director casually but fearlessly stirs things up, balancing brutal satiric comedy, unapologetic social commentary, convincing jeopardy, even appealing romance. "
- Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
"One of Spike Lee’s best movies. With a dynamite cast, sharp script and pointed humor that underscores real-life, disturbing horrors, it’s an entertaining crime drama that amuses and shocks and invites the audience into a complex and impassioned conversation about the power of racism - and the moving image - to influence our lives. "
- William Bibbiani, IGN
