In Jumanji: The Next Level, the gang is back but the game has changed. As they return to rescue one of their own, the players will have to brave parts unknown from arid deserts to snowy mountains, to escape the world's most dangerous game.
A powerful and thought-provoking true-story, "Just Mercy" follows young lawyer Bryan Stevenson (Jordan) and his history-making battle for justice. After graduating from Harvard, Bryan might have had his pick of lucrative jobs. Instead, he heads to Alabama to defend those wrongly condemned, with the support of local advocate Eva Ansley (Larson.) One of his first, and most incendiary, cases is that of Walter McMillian (Foxx,) who, in 1987, was sentenced to die for the notorious murder of an 18-year-old girl, despite a preponderance of evidence proving his innocence and the fact that the only testimony against him came from a criminal with a motive to lie. In the years that follow, Bryan becomes embroiled in a labyrinth of legal and political maneuverings and overt and unabashed racism as he fights for Walter, and others like him, with the odds-and the system-stacked against them.Written by
Fantastic movie from beginning to end.
A story that needed to be told, and one that I am grateful to have been shown.
This story is a tragedy of mis-justice with hopes of redemption throughout, a real roller coaster, I shed tears more than once.
I would highly recommend this movie to be watch by anyone, I will be dwelling on this for quite some time, I'm now off to Google to read up on the real life character on which this movie is based, I have no doubt that afterwards you will be doing it too.
Lastly I will add that I believe the current rating of this movie thus far is ridiculously low, I truly believe this is a story worthy of more than a 9, let alone its current 7.3.
