When watching this movie, I felt so many emotions. I felt sadness, love and empathy. Sadness that these events occurred. I was angry cause I knew that our justice system let johnnie D down and angry that I was not fazed that they did. Movies like these burn something in the soul. Jamie Foxx and Michael B. Jordan did an amazing job playing these two prominent figures.

This should be a requirement for the world to see. This was not a movie that was based on a story from the 60s or before that. If Injustice happened in the 90s. The emotion that was conveyed was beyond words. Jamie Foxx and Michael b Jordan did a fantastic job. Award-winning

I must say I was angry that we still suffer with bigotry. Made me cry that this man spent 7 years to many in prison. I agree with another reviewer that this should be a manditory watch.

I think one of the most profound things that stood out for me was that the movie shone a spotlight on the heart of people. We have to fo better as a people. The level of hate and willingness for silence consent are toxic for us all!

Every black man in a America can identify with the injustice of being guilty until proven innocent. This film wasn’t based on a case in the 30,40, or 50s. It’s fairly recent . This film touches that nerve, that emotion. Definitely a must see

Evoking strong emotion doesn't make this a good movie. The story felt tired and overdone. Michael B. Jordan overreacted and didn't feel sincere. It's "Lifetime" movie caliber. The only thing that might have made this movie different from any dozen with similar stories is that the lawyer was black too instead of bringing in some white guy in the savior role. It just feels dated, trite, and lacked depth. Having an intense subject matter is no substitute for depth, originality, and good acting.

This was a griping story. The reality that people of color face in prisons all over the country, not just in the south. Michael B. Jordan was moving, and so was Jamie Foxx. I will go back and I definitely recommend this film.

The needless cruelty of the criminal justice system feels like a world begging for more sense-making, but Just Mercy only sees its characters as heroes, victims, or obstacles, not as rational beings who might have their own reasons to knowingly commit terrible acts. Cretton’s desire to focus tightly on McMillian’s case makes sense, but he accidentally makes the white malefactors in the town more fascinating for their villainy.

A straightforward biopic ... The film's edge is somewhat dulled by respect for its subject, who's drawn here as more hero than man.

Although conventional in its approach, the film is a forceful reckoning of a broken legal system.
