There will be spoilers. Just a precaution for those who haven't seen the film. I watched AHX for the first time last night. My initial reaction as the movie progressed was positive. I was liking it right up until the mid-way part in prison where Derek all of a sudden has a change of heart because some black guy made him laugh. Yeah I'm understating the significance of his black friend. Its a relationship that probably developed during the course of a year or more. I don't doubt that it could happen but the way it happened in the film just didn't seem all that convincing. Derek is obviously an intelligent guy. His argument against Rodney King was spot-on and anybody who was privy to what actually happened that night would've agreed with his assessment. My point is that his conviction was so strong at first, yet he seemed to drop his whole ideology very quickly. What was up with the ending? Danny gets shot and killed by a black kid soon after he drops his white supremacist ideas. It was almost as if the director trolled us all and said, "welp, the white supremacists were right all along". Was the movie trying to say that Derek or Danny's mistakes came back to haunt them? Its like, what now after the ending? Does Derek go back to his old lifestyle? I doubt that because of his very public fallout with the movement. It just doesn't feel complete. If the theme was that their mistakes came back to haunt them, then the way it was delivered kind of takes away responsibility from the black kid who shot Danny. In the story he most likely gets arrested, but we the viewers don't see that part. We see Danny get shot then it cuts to the credits so what now? I'm trying to say something but I can't seem to articulate it very well.
