I didn't enjoy this film because it is too cartoonish for a « true story » about a serious matter. I honestly had to check if it wasn't a Disney production. Ron is obviously a charming prince : handsome, friendly, educated, honest, clever, funny, wise and courageous. He has absolutely no weaknesses and handles his weapon (his phone) with magical dexterity. And of course his hair is perfect, like all princes. Flip is the faithful and stubborn horse. He galops where he is told to go. Patrice is a beautiful princess, wild, emotional and idealistic, who lives in the Black Panthers castle. The bad guys are as naive and stupid as they are cruel. And at the end, the most wicked are dying of their own stupidity, the arrogants are humiliated, the vicious are arrested and everyone gives a standing ovation to the charming prince (even if the only thing he did was to have arrested a minor member of the Klan). This is a feel-good movie that is very close to « Django Unchained » (or Inglorious Basterds) with the same simple concept : pick real bad guys, make fun of them and kill them. But Tarantino movies are a lot more entertaining, and certainly does not pretend to be « true ».
Ron Stallworth, an African American police officer from Colorado Springs, CO, successfully manages to infiltrate the local Ku Klux Klan branch with the help of a Jewish surrogate who eventually becomes its leader. Based on actual events.
