VERDICT – 2/5
1) Some intense monologues from Al Pacino and Christopher Plummer
2) The opening prologue with Hezbollah
3) Bruce McGill: Deposition in Mississippi scene – best scene of the entire movie!
1) 157-minute long boring movie with very few good moments.
2) Russell Crowe is performance is annoying and pretentious.
3) Too much time wasted in building up and make this entire project an Oscar bait.
Ron Motley: Boy, you got rights… and lefts. Ups and downs and middles. So what? You don’t get to instruct anything around here! This is not North Carolina, not South Carolina, nor Kentucky! This is the sovereign State of Mississippi’s proceeding. WIPE THAT SMIRK OFF YOUR FACE! Dr. Wigand’s deposition will be part of this record! And I’m gonna take my witness’ testimony whether the hell you like it or not!
