Emanuel Levy

Slick, well-acted thriller that nonetheless distorts the facts and looks at the civil rights movement from a strictly white perspective

Parker pushes the picture along at a fervent clip, with the character scenes back-to-back with chases or violence.

Starts out as a vivid portrait of the Civil Rights era and ends up a cop drama in which vengeful anger is used against racist killers.
