American History X takes a look at racism in a different way. I believe this movie is about more than just a neo-Nazi and his political opinions. I believe this movie is about family relations, and how people from outside your family has the ability to destroy your relationship. It’s important to note that you shouldn’t let people intrude your personal life if you don’t like them doing so.
I think the movie is worth watching, mainly because it’s a great movie with an important message. It has a lot of great scenes and the main protagonist Derek Vinyard is a great character that you connect with later on in the movie. In the start of the movie he’s a character you don’t really have any bonds with, but later on you start sympathizing with him and his family. I would recommend this movie to people who like action movies with a deeper message.
