The movie Amistad is a 4 star film because I believe it is historically accurate very effective in showing the way slaves were treated and the way slavery and the American judicial system worked during the Antebellum period The movie was also a good watch and was entertaining and educational at the same time The movie also proved to be realistic entertaining and believableAmistad seemed realistic to me throughout the entire movie one specific example would be the opening scene of the movie The scene had the slaves taking over La Amistad At first it didnt seem very likely that the slaves would have actually been able to do that But after thought it began to seem more likely Considering the number of slaves versus the number of crew members and also considering that the slaves had already come from lives of labor Also when the Cinqu first pulled the nail from the rock I personally found that believable too A lot of people wouldnt have put themselves through that much pain with no guarantee of results but he had wanted to get back to his family so badly that it didnt matterIn my opinion the movie actually seemed somewhat biased towards the slaves point of view It was always shown that the slaves had come from such happy lives where all was good into a life of beatings labor and sickness Granted they did come into this but as they said in the movie in the Mende tribe they have something of the same thing as a slave If a person is indebted to another or something happens where the consequences would require this then that man would become a sort of servant or slave to the man he owed The Mende seemed to do the same thing to their salves only on not quite the same level I do however agree that white men have treated slaves horribly and there is no excuse
