Movie Description:
A powerful and thought-provoking true-story, "Just Mercy" follows young lawyer Bryan Stevenson (Jordan) and his history-making battle for justice. After graduating from Harvard, Bryan might have had his pick of lucrative jobs. Instead, he heads to Alabama to defend those wrongly condemned, with the support of local advocate Eva Ansley (Larson.) One of his first, and most incendiary, cases is that of Walter McMillian (Foxx,) who, in 1987, was sentenced to die for the notorious murder of an 18-year-old girl, despite a preponderance of evidence proving his innocence and the fact that the only testimony against him came from a criminal with a motive to lie. In the years that follow, Bryan becomes embroiled in a labyrinth of legal and political maneuverings and overt and unabashed racism as he fights for Walter, and others like him, with the odds-and the system-stacked against them.

Pretty good legal drama

Based on a true story this legal drama about the wrongful conviction of an innocent black man who's put on death row showcases some powerful performances from its central cast. An idealist young lawyer sets out to prove his innocence and unravels a disturbing plot contrived by the white police department, the prosecutor, witness and even judge to frame an innocent black man as the sacrificial lamb in order to close the case. I found the story oddly fascinating and unsettling. It's one thing if a black man was convicted in a case of mistaken identity but it's racism and corruption of all levels of authority to construct evidence to frame an innocent man for the purpose of closure. Granted Alabama has a history of racial prejudice but this event was not that long ago. The story is very similar to the Hurricane with Denzel Washington. It's a great watch that does drag out the drama in some scenes and I would've liked more emphasis on the legal aspects of the case but overall it was enjoyable.

Real-life slow pace horror story that we, unfortunately, already seen so many times before

Based on the true story of Civil Rights Lawyer Bryan Stevenson, "Just Mercy" actually is showing the poor state of social relations in the US, no matter the theme of the movie is fight against the death penalty. Unfortunately, almost everything in this movie we already seen in so many other similar films, and that is why I become bored around 43 min of its runtime. As a result, "Just Mercy" suffers a lot from its slight pacing which makes you to start feel the movie as a quite long. The score and cinematography are restrained, comforting the story rather than adding anything significant, but on the whole that is OK, given that "Just Mercy" is Stevenson's story with some quite emotionally powerful ending which more than makes up for a very long runtime, average cinematography and slow pace rhythm. Overall, "Just Mercy" is worth a watch and a movie that is impossible to ignore, but everything here is just too familiar and the film simply can't put a fresh spin on its subject.

Rating: 6+/7

Great movie wonderful story!!

Was so hard to watch the police chief and the DA assume that just because you r black u r guilty. Was so impressed by the young black attorney--his drive even though he was subjected to brutality himself. Makes u look at death row in a very different light to be sure that those whom r there r truly guilty. Highly recommend this movie.
