Movie reviews for A Time to Kill

2011-02-26  Peter Buchardt: 7 out of 10
I like court room movies, I like the whole investigation plot. This a good one of its kind. It's set in the south of the US in a time where racism lurks in every corner, which gives this movie an edge, or at least an interesting angle.

There's a few "holes" in the plot. There's McConaugheys relationship with his wife, and his missteps during trial with affair, drinking and general self destruction, and finally there's the grand finally of the jury decision, all three subjects plays a great part in the overall plot, but as a viewer you don't get much insight in these important "issues", which is a bit sad.

I've seen the movie a couple of times in the past and had an sudden urge to watch it a again[some times writing these reviews can be the main encouragement to this] and once again I state that it's good movie, and also that it easy to watch here 15 years after it premiered, which isn't the case for most movies.

On another note: Seing Donald and Kiefer Sutherland playing roles that are not family related is quit interesting. Both does a great job, even though I miss a bit insight in their backgrounds, this goes mainly for Kiefers part, since his character is all about hatred.
