Fear the worst. Spike Lee, in my eyes, is THE most overrated director ever. Don't know if it's just the racial subject matter he always sticks with, or that his movies just lay on the screen. Honestly hated all of his movies (okay, haven't seen ALL of them, since I don't like him as a director).
My only hope is that he doesn't put his typical racial spin on it, and make it some tale about a slave escaping a slave owner, only to come back for revenge.
Hey, I'm always willing to give just about any flick a chance, even this... kinda.
