Hate Crime review

I first viewed this movie within a year or two of its release. I remember the DVD cover was very dark, had one guy on the ground with someone standing over him with a baseball bat. Despite that intriguing cover, it was released by a distributor who were pumping out a lot of uninspired, low-budget DVD releases at the time so I still went into it with low expectations. Surprisingly, it was a lot better than anticipated and upon my recent re-watch another ten years later, I think I can confirm that this movie is okay enough if you have any interest.

The movie itself is rather light on violence. It starts off with the notion that it's quite clear who was responsible for the murderous attack and the remainder of the movie would be about how is he going to get caught, is he going to hurt others, maybe it ends up as a court drama and so forth. However, later in the movie it makes a sneaky pivot and transitions into whodunnit mode and while the ultimate reveal isn't all the surprising, the path to it was interesting enough to keep my attention the whole way through.

Hate Crime is a movie that doesn't have any scenes that are all that memorable, and is likely not worthy of more than a one-time viewing by most people, but for a movie with limited violence and a fairly low budget production, it succeeds well enough.
