Do The Right Thing Movie Review Summary

Actors: Spike Lee, Danny Aiello, Ossie Davis, John Turturro, Bill Nunn

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Do The Right Thing

This Spike Lee masterpiece is the most genious movie imaginable dealing with topics such as racism. Being entertaining and very thought-provoking at the same time, it really drills into the heart of the issues, not just scrath the surface. Each actor give a huge soul to their characters, making them range from likeable (Mayor, Mookie, Sal, Radio-Rakeem, Love Daddy) to unlikable (supercool John Turturro's prickiest role to date, Sal's racist bastardish son Pino). A truely spectacular masterpiece.
