Riveting. Emotional. Soul searching.
Wonderfully done movie to tell a truly amazing story and bring the realities of racism within the justice system.
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.
