Average User Score: 8.0Nov 3, 2013Beyond the intriguing premise (a man is kidnapped into slavery) this movie goes nowhere. Brutal, repetitive, and pointless. What is the subtext? What is the message? Slavery was bad? No character development, no plot development. Just one graphic depiction of cruelty after another. Brad Pitt's accent is ridiculous.
Compare this movie to Schindler's List or even Roots and it pales in comparison.
Skip "Twelve Years A Slave" and save yourself an extremely unpleasant 2 hours.… Expand
