He wants to file a wrongful death suit against Walker, cause he incited those four men to kill someone who wasn't white and his brother was the first one they came across. While the Prestons agree to do it, they receive harsh criticism that they are attacking the First Ammendment but nevertheless they persevere. Written by
Like the other Defenders movies from Showtime, this one was just brilliant in it's script and story. You think the entire movie will revolve around the first trial, but then it becomes an intricate working of yet another related trial. It's kind of hard to comment on the movie without giving anything away, and by giving away the plot, it totally ruins the movie, so I won't do that. All I will say is that this movie is genius. Just like the other Defenders films, it's a nonstop puzzle that these brilliant lawyers are putting together, and you can never guess what will ultimately happen in the end. The actors are terrific and the storyline is intriguing, it doesn't get any better than this when it comes to legal dramas.
