Denzel in Fences delivers a force of nature acting performance, that is probably Wahington’s best performance ever. He creates an wholly-realized character that you will simultaneously hate and sympathize with. If you need any further proof that Denzel Washington is one of the great actors of all time, he just gave you a masterful piece of evidence. As for Viola Davis, all i can say is that she is owed an Oscar, and is currently the odds-on favorite to win an Academy Award at the time of me writing this review. Fences is her magnum opus. She has already won a Tony for this role and it's not hard to see why. Davis brings a no-nonsense nature and a stubborn belief in family to the portrayal of Rose, and she’s the soul of a great film

Denzel directing is bland and the film has a lot of pacing issues, as I felt the runtime. Of course this was based on a stage play and it sure feels like it even watching it. Because every monologue has to be shout and be big like a stage performance, but at the same time fits certain characters. Kind of a mix bag really.

You could say the main goal was to make it look and feel like a play. I mean, many movies have done it, but did it so much better. It got pretty repetitive after awhile and has a rusty flow.
