??? Really got me with the ending. I was hollering what’s point of make believe if you're just going to make it into a music video, until I got it. Antebellum accurately spells out how much they’re trying to silence us. I’d even say it’s a metaphor for neo-colonialism; where they still enslave us like old times under Everyone nose.

First of all, this movie is racially sensitive. It depicts the horrors of slavery in the past and tackles racism in the present. I'd like to drop the quote from William Faulkner that the movie begins with “The past is never dead. It is not even past.” Kick-starting immediately with the horrors of a plantation and builds up to the twist in the movie. Janelle Monaè's performance leaves you with a partial question mark. However, the final scenes of the movie sort of plants the feeling of liberation in your heart. Antebellum is a different kind of Anti-racism movie. It takes on a path of every horror movie and trust me at some point you are expecting the ghosts to appear or something. I particularly love the movie asides the superb directing, knowing who Janelle Monaè is and her stance on Black inclusion, Anti-racism Etc. She fit into the message of the movie but not necessarily the character.

That being said this movie is a solid 3/5. The storyline could have been better but the plot twist, the movie direction, and the final images did save it.

An okay movie. Wasn't as thrilling as I expected but it passed the message they intended. And I loved the plot twist too, wasn't what I had imagined.

Antebellum is just the right definition of a top-class movie. Everything about the movie is just top-class. Janelle Monae was just too perfect with both her roles as Eden and as Veronica Henley. The story is very nice and very well arranged.

Nice movie, and a great job done.
