It is somewhat relieving that “Emancipation,” directed by Antoine Fuqua and starring Will Smith as a runaway slave in Louisiana during the Civil War, is not, at least, strictly speaking, an Oscar contender. “Emancipation” is not nearly the somber prestige picture you could easily mistake it for, despite the movie’s significant historical context, its release during awards season, and its inescapable connection to last March’s Academy Awards ceremony. A thriller with action. Fuqua, a talented genre filmmaker, has created a film that is less like the sharply piercing drama “12 Years a Slave” and more like a gritty, survival actioner. It is a chase movie whose power comes from a violent B-movie structure rather than psychological authenticity. Involved in Peter’s frantic but clever escape, “Emancipation” is a simple parable of Black resistance and spiritual tenacity. Although Fuqua’s film is frequently suspenseful and gripping, it also lacks nuance and is too tightly bound by genre conventions, which is unfair to its real-life protagonist.
