Imperium nearly successfully infiltrates the ideologies of white supremacists.
15 March 2019 | by TheMovieDioramaSee all my reviews

'American History X' will always be the imperative film involving neo-Nazis and nationalism. No film has come close. Here we have a standard crime thriller that utilises its "infiltrator" plot structure to explore the perspective of white supremacists. Occasionally offering an insightful perspective into the radicalism that drives these fanatics, although frequently succumbing to a predictable story that lacks tension and thrills. An FBI agent is recruited to infiltrate an underground movement of radical neo-Nazis in order to investigate their next plan before they attack.

Supremacy is viewed to be the catalyst for terrorism, violent outbursts of racial abuse opens a profound window into this fanatical movement. This film grants us with an intriguing look at the structure of underground groups like these (considering this is based on true events) and their perspective on society. Yes, it is a derivative of anti-semitism to which should be widely disregarded. Unfortunately though, these groups do still exist, making this story both timely and harrowing. Ragussis did an excellent job and conveying the passionate hatred that drives these individuals, as they chase for the Aryan future that their infamous idol failed to achieve. Despite a promising first half, the infrequent thrills and lack of characterisation for the protagonist ultimately left me wanting more. Radcliffe substitutes a wand for a hand gun and throws himself into this daring role. He perfectly suited the character. Collette by his side supporting him well, with a few fiery scenes between them.

Alas, the mass amount of descriptions for the neo-Nazis' beliefs and absence of characterisation meant that it felt more educational than dramatic. Ragussis inventively injects still montages of white supremacy, but does nothing new with the base material. Concluding the film in the simplest way possible, almost diminishing the impact of its story. Still, Radcliffe's riveting central performance is enough to engage audiences, but stumbles badly on the last act.
