The Reviews for Barry (2016) 720p

Slow and disappointingReviewed bysomfVote: 5/10

Although I consider Obama the best President in my lifetime, I consider this film the worst film made about a President who lived during my lifetime. I had to write this review because when I saw the low IMDb rating I figured it was due to typical site trollers that never even saw the film. But the truth is that this is not a very good film.

The acting is all solid, but the script is trite and boring. I don't think it revealed a bit about Obama that most people did not already know.

When tackling the issues of race that have to be tackled in a biography of a young Obama, it would be very easy to come off as clichéd. And unfortunately that is the way it comes off. If you feel like watching a film about recent Presidents there are several films about Nixon and JFK and Stone's Bush bio that are certainly worth watching. "Secret Honor" is a gem you should seek out in particular. But you can skip this one.

Good story about biracial Americans that has almost nothing to do with Barack ObamaReviewed byscottlentz-26069Vote: 6/10

This film had important themes about being biracial in America, now or in the 1980's, but having Barack "Barry" Obama was detrimental (for me, at least).

The director said in an interview that the idea was to "accurately tell the story of a mixed-race kid in New York in 1981 that would one day become the 44th President of the United States," yet the latter part of that idea is non-existent in the film. It's just an accurate story about a mixed-race kid in New York in 1981 and that's it. I have no idea why Barack Obama is the main character of this film other than that he happens to be biracial. Any other detail specific to Barry is irrelevant to the story. You could have made this about a fictional biracial person named Darryl and it would have been exactly the same movie.

I found this confounding, because "Barry" IS the main character. And it was marketed as being about a young Barack Obama, which comes with certain expectations of seeing something that relates to the Obama we know - elements you would find in any other biopic - that are nowhere to be found. At best, you could make the argument that these experiences shaped the way he sees race in America, but there's nothing in the film to suggest that it did, which is even more confounding.

Had the main character been someone else, the theme of finding out where you belong would have made this a good film - competent acting, good dialogue and secondary characters. Everything was there, but setting the expectation of an Obama biopic and not delivering on that promise just left me disappointed.

If you're interested in seeing the film purely for that theme, you'll probably enjoy it.

If you're looking to learn about Barack Obama's college years, you'll be disappointed.

Solid movie about Barack Obama in his youthReviewed bySeth_Rogue_OneVote: 7/10

Well-acted and well-made drama about a young man who's struggling with his identity, and that man happens to be Barack Obama but the subject is of course something that many can relate to.

So it's NOT a 'rags to riches' kind of tale about how Barack overcame the odds and managed to become president of the USA, but more a low-key drama about a man who hasn't really figured out who he is or who he's supposed to be.

I have a feeling that the rating is so low with almost 20% of the current ratings being 1 stars, that these are simply people who don't like Barack in general. Wouldn't be surprised if most of them haven't even seen the film either.

Not saying that it's an amazingly mind-blowing film that everyone should love or anything but it is suspicious.

Anyways, I did see it and I did like it and was surprised to find out that it's Devon Terrel's debut movie, he makes a convincing young Barack.
