    Message in every photo and trailer: Black man beating up white man, Black man dominating white female. Hollywood shoves this agenda down our throats at every opportunity. They try to be coy and subliminal, but it is obvious to me. it is disgusting and offensive. You could not pay me to watch this racist garbage.

    Denzel plays the same tired character in every film. Ho hum.

    Looks like another Hollywood failure in the works.
