Marco Albanese @ Stanze di Cinema [Italian]
[New] | Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Texan Reviews
Excerpt: Just Mercy has an important story to tell about racism, injustice and the continuing struggle to find equal justice under law. As such, why is the film so dry?
Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
Excerpt: Cretton delivers his most disappointing work to date, a mediocre, cliché ridden, speechifying tale of the fight to free an innocent black man railroaded by racist Southerners.
Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews
Excerpt: I’ve seen some pretty simplistic dramas in my day but this screenplay underestimates the moral decency of its audience by fashioning a narrative that’s so obvious it’s condescending.
MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
Excerpt: This true origin story of a literal social-justice warrior is earnest, passionate… and exhausting. We need to keep telling these stories, yet each is but another tiny drop of water in a rough ocean.

Excerpt: Just Mercy works beautifully as both an examination of a vital issue and as a gripping legal story.
Jared Mobarak @ JaredMobarak.com
Excerpt: Moments of hardship and tragedy do land and [the actors are up to exposing] their characters’ pain, but too often these affecting displays arrive with paint-by-number clarity.
Betty Jo Tucker @ ReelTalk Movie Reviews
Excerpt: This compelling movie boasts a couple of suspenseful courtroom scenes, but most of the drama relates to hard work and a dedication to making sure equal justice prevails regardless of race or class.
