Critic Reviews for Heavens Fall

  • Heavens Fall tells its story with some interesting stylistic flourishes (a brisk montage of lawyers' closing arguments, for example) and without emotional manipulation.

    April 19, 2006
  • There's little to applaud and only a base "what a shame" kind of anger. All in all, Heavens Fall is an introduction to history; a prologue whose past should be better explored.

Audience Reviews for Heavens Fall

  • Mar 20, 2009
    Good movie based on the true story of the Scottsboro nine trials. How racism affected the trial in the deep south, especially since all the jurors were white, southern men. Good solid performances from all the actors, however I wasn't really fond of Hutton's protrayal. He came off a little strange to me, but that may be how is character was supposed to be. His NY accent seemed to come and go at times. Overall interesting, well done movie.
