Just Mercy

Do NOT see this if you are a fan of Donald Trump – you won’t enjoy it’s message.  Also be prepared that a big part of it is about anti-Death Penalty.  Whether you are for or against, need to keep that in mind going in.

I was looking forward to this movie because I really enjoy court case, law type of movies, no matter what side they take.  I also knew that this was going to be a long movie and tried to be prepared with food but Regals new buy your tickets at the concession counter prevented me from doing that with their 30 minute line.  Sneak your own food if you are seeing this or any movie at a Regal theater until they figure out their [email protected]#t.

I’m not a huge fan of Michael Jordan (basketball and actor).   I am a big fan of Jamie Foxx.   Both of these guys were excellent as the lawyer and death row inmate.   I thought the movie was really well written – some things that happened that you would think in a movie would turn out one way but in real life probably would have gone the other.  In other words, not an exaggeration because it’s a movie.  I’m sure there were parts that were over blown but I can’t point out any obvious.

This movie was excellent.  I thought I saw the two best movies in the past few weeks for the entire last twelve months with Uncut Gems and 1917.   This was better, not much but better.    I would recommend this for anybody over the age of 12.  There is one very disturbing scene but I’d say to anybody that sees it and comes back to me and responds with I shouldn’t have recommended it for X type of people, get the [email protected]#$#$ over it.   Yes, it made me uncomfortable but it’s one scene – you’ll know what I’m talking about if you see it and you have ample time to close your eyes and cover your ears if your too much of a wimp to take it.
