A review of the movie “John Q” which stars Denzel Washington as a father at the end of his rope and seemingly out of options who takes action in a desperate attempt to help save his son’s life.

Where the film went left for me was with the hostage situation which seemed a bit unbelievable.

Most of the content focuses on the actors and actresses who appeared in front of the camera but there’s also some info about a few Black directors.
