    Very good film. Excellent acting all around. Definitely worth seeing.

    It's good but I don't feel cinema was the best medium for the story as it feels stretched out. Somebody needs to make a documentary.

    Michael B. Jordan excels in a sensitive portrayal of a troubled young man, unaware that his time is running out. A poignant story with simple but gripping storytelling.

    An effective tribute to a regular, normal, imperfect American who was a victim of horrible injustice. It makes us sad, but also more aware of the fatal flaws of our system.
