Justice is Served!
25 January 2002 | by (Benicia, CA) – See all my reviews

All I can say about this movie... powerful! Tom Cherry (Tom Sizemore) is stuck between a rock and a hard place. He must decide wether or not to turn in his racist father, who bombed an Afro-American church in the 1960's that killed 4 innocent little girls, to authorities. Sizemore and Ving Rhaymes give superb performances. The FX network has mastered the first Original Movie that can actually rival those of HBO and Showtime.

You will definately be gripped by this movie!

My vote... 9/10
