    Bryan Stevenson: "The first time I visited Death Row, I wasn't expecting to meet someone the same age as me ... from a neighborhood just like ours ... coulda been me, momma."

    Wow. What a ride.

    The book "Just Mercy" is essentially a memoir from Bryan Stevenson about his life, post-Harvard, aiding death row inmates in the South. He spends the bulk of the book on the specific case of Walter McMillian and ...

  • Sometimes there's necessity in predictability.

    It's very easy to criticize Just Mercy for being similar, maybe overly so, to so many legal dramas that have proceeded it. Such criticisms are not unwarranted and viewed purely as a piece of entertainment, it's unlikely you'll find anything in Destine Daniel Cretton's film that you haven't seen before.

    In terms of its story, however, it carries a message that bears repeating. And it should be repeated, tirelessly, until the world in which we are living in changes. There's a superb moment in this where Michael Harding, playing sheriff Tom Tate, warns Michael B. Jordan (as Bryan Stevenson) that he isn't cruising into his "redneck town" to rid himself of no "racist sheriff".

    There's ...

  • If we have to sit through these mediocre films as a consequence of getting to watch Short term 12, then so be it

    Maybe I'm just a sucker for a good, heartfelt, and feel-good story (if it's handled well). This film will not be winning awards anytime soon, but sometimes a movie doesn't have to be built for that. They may believe they deserve an award, but it just isn't going to happen. Nevertheless, Just Mercy did exactly what it was created to do, and that is to tell this story in a (hopefully) true and authentic way. Destin Daniel Cretton showed such promise with Short term 12. No film from him since has captured that magic, but this does what it intends to do. Is it cliché? Absolutely, and it's also one of ...

  • I'm surprised this hasn't garnered more attention. Undoubtedly, the screenplay is heavy on expository sequences and unsubtle imagery, but I was still tremendously moved - and tremendously angered by the injustice, even though I knew most of the story beforehand anyway. And even in the unsubtle imagery, there was such a strong commitment to telling the true story accurately that everything unbelievable becomes more infuriating because it did happen.

    Daniel Destin Cretton is not a particularly stylish director - and the direction here lacks some of the quirks and idiosyncrasies of something like Short term 12 - but his greatest strength lies in his guiding hand over actors. Just put Michael B Jordan and Jamie Foxx in a room, and I'm all in. It's powerful and drastically empathetic filmmaking from minute one.

  • "It's not my job to make people happy, it's my job to get justice for my client" - Bryan Stevenson,

    Good for him ... but, I wish that this film did more and that the style felt more current. It feels like a film you'd show to middle-schoolers.

    Read the wikipedia entry on Bryan Stevenson instead ... he's an amazing man.

  • I’d like to start off by saying that I will never understand the pain that the black community has faced. I will continue to emphasize with you all. I also don’t want to seem too preachy, and I’m sorry if I do.

    To those who are privileged, please use it. Use it to learn. Use it to listen. Use it to take direct action. Don't silently like tweets. Go to (peaceful) protests. Spread awareness. Don’t simply post a black square and think ‘welp, my work is done for today.’ Nobody should ever think that. This is not a sprint, it is a marathon. We all must fight for justice today, tomorrow, and for the rest of our lives. If you’re ...

  • tbh the trailers for this did the film a huge disservice and made it look a lot more corny and bland than it ended up being so i was pleasantly surprised!

  • It's so well-intentioned and earnest that I hate how superficial I found it. A movie can mean well but it's not going to connect without some true grit and emotion. It's one of those awards bait prestige dramas that leaves me ... just drowsy. (Sorry.)

  • Every single performance in this movie is outstanding. The only real fault of this film is that it falls into the generic formula for these types of movies, but it does enough in the way of inventiveness and pure emotion that it really doesn't matter. Very important subject matter and it was executed perfectly.

  • sad but i couldn't pay attention lmao we were at a sleepover

  • A Really Good movie that is relevant to today's society.


  • 3rd time watching i cried just as hard but this time in class

  • True story
    Everyone should see this

  • This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I think movies that deal with the idea of ​​"How valuable is a human life? And what is that worth to the American justice system?" Are always gonna be quality no matter what. And with commanding performance from Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Foxx made this such a powerful film.

  • Correcta. Hace lo suficiente para que empatice con todos los personajes con escenas desgarradoras. Como drama carcelario esta bien, pero funciona mejor como un manifiesto en contra del racismo endémico en los USA.

  • i believe everyone should watch this

  • Powerful cast and powerful performances for a powerful story.

    While it did seem a little generic, and not as memorable as other legal dramas, I was transfixed for the moment.

    Some interesting twists and turns that make this not entirely predictable.


  • Hesitant to give it 5 stars, but this was a pretty good film!

  • This movie was way hyped up for me by a dear friend and my sister, and it still managed to impress me beyond expectations. I wasn't super familiar with the story line, but it blew me away and had me in tears within the opening scenes. This is an important film for many reasons and I hope that people not only watch it for the story, but for applicable lessons in our own lives. There is always more we can do to actively oppose racism, instead of just standing by and not being racist. The performances of Jordan, Larson, Foxx, and Spall were exceptional! They brought to life serious racial issues that are way too close to our timeline for comfort.
