I stood in the DVD club and looked at the cover of “A Time to Kill“. It sounded awfully familiar. It looked even more familiar with Matthew McConaughey, Samuel Jackson, and Sandra Bullock on the cover. It even had a description, but I couldn’t remember it. So I rented the film.
Within a few first shots I recognized it. It is one of my favourite films on two subjects: court and rasism. It is kind of linear and one-sided, but it does deliver the point in a thought provoking manner. It has one of the best casts ever too. Basically, just about every face on the foreground you see in the film is familiar.
This is a good choice of a family movie for educating kids and adults about how all people are born equal, but some are more equal than the others. 10 out of 10 goes to the rating tables from me for the outstanding job.
