The movie is set in "Jessup County", Mississippi. The events on which the film is based occurred in Neshoba County, but it is likely that the producers deliberately altered the setting to dispel perceptions that the film is a true documentary. See more »

Alan Parker's Mississippi Burning is an unflinching look at racism in the South. This is a very difficult movie to watch, but it is well worth it, and a reminder of past events -- events that should never be forgotten. Gene Hackman gives a power-house of a performance, ripping up the screen in every scene. The film has a strong supporting cast as well, including the always dynamic Michael Rooker.
Many have complained about the death-wish like final act, but the final results are completely called for and necessary.
