Even among civil rights movies, Blood Done Sign My Name is remarkably earnest, but its big heart can't cover for the bland acting and TV-style melodrama that blunts the movie's impact.

You can't deny the inspirational qualities of the story or Parker's screen presence, any more than you could accuse the film of subtlety or of masking its conspicuous pro-Christian agenda.
Though it can't quite transcend its filmmaker's earnest intentions, this solemn history lesson offers several powerful moments.
Along the way there are many fine, precisely observed moments showing what race relations were like in this little tobacco town at the turn of the decade.
What the film lacks in psychological nuance it makes up for in unassuming, intimate social observation.
The story is well-told and well worth telling.
Beautifully shot and well-acted, if earnest, overlong and unfocused.
A valuable film that shows the power of a forgotten history. [Full review in Spanish]
Riveting, Real-Life, Civil Rights-Era Drama Released on DVD.
The acting, like the storytelling, is quietly convincing.
If this were a 1970s TV movie, it probably would have won a boatload of Emmys. Now, it lacks impact, although parents or grandparents worried their children don't appreciate the sacrifices of decades past might want to use it as a teaching tool.
If you can get past its moribund title, you'll still have a challenge in spotting the protagonist in this oddly washed-out depiction of a racial battle that raged in Oxford, North Carolina...
I challenge anyone who sincerely believes that The Blind Side is a good film to take a look at this one and see how this kind of story is meant to be told.
Racism--one of the most dirty words. It has been raising its ugly head since the birth of America. This true story will make you cringe with its relentless brutality, and appalling injustice! This town reacted to the crime this movie is based on by closing in the ranks of the whites, and eventually running their new pastor out of town. White supremacy died a SLOW death in the deep South.
