I usually detest John Grisham's brand of airport populist courtroom trash, but an impressive cast elevates this above the usual white liberal take on southern racism. The characters are wall to wall cliches, but decent character actors keep them interesting, particularly SLJ and Donald Sutherland.

A great film that lots of people have not seen MCConaughey's speach at the end is heartrenching

It starts where a 10-year-old Tonya Hailey is viciously raped and beaten by two white racistsóJames Louis "Pete" Willard and Billy Ray Cobb. Carl Lee Hailey, recalls a similar case from the year before wherein four white men raped a black girl in a nearby town. Billy Ray Cobb's brother, Freddy Lee Cobb, is seeking revenge for Carl Lee's killing of his brother. A remarkable plot with endearing portrayals from almost every cast. A Time to Kill is a smart drama with believable situations.

There's a lot to like about this movie, but the main star is the conviction and chemistry displayed by the leads. There really isn't a bad performance in the movie and that makes the racial issues that the film investigates more thought-provoking, as they are handled seriously and with poise.

Populist, though effective, 'A Time to Kill' can certainly be classified as dynamic cinema.

Of all the Grisham novels made into movies- this one is the best. Strong performances by an All-Star cast that includes a breakout role from Matthew McConaughey, who before this was a relative unkown. Sandra Bullock, Samuel L. Jackson, Kevin Spacey, Chris Cooper, Oliver Platt, Ashley Judd, Charles S. Dutton and both Sutherlands' (Donald and son Keifer) are among the highlighted ensemble. Obviously this is the role that made McConaughey a star but equally strong was the performance of Jackson as the heart struck father on trial for a double murder. A gripping movie that brings racial tensions into the courtroom and does it quite well I might add.

This is an excellent movie!The cast is amazing and the story is even better, because it's based on a novel by John Grisham.It's a movie I can easily watch again and again. This movie completely changed my view of life. The dialogue is excellent and some lines are applicable on life.This is the type of movie that you can not afford to miss..
