Storyline

The murder of an African American youth in rural Alabama has gone unpunished, unsolved and uninvestigated for almost twenty years.

Harper undertakes the investigation despite the opposition of his publisher, violent threats from mysterious forces, a break-up with his fiancee and his father's cancer diagnosis. Deadline is a story of murder, family, race, and of redemption - for a small Southern town and for Matt Harper. Written by Mark Ethridge

Incredible
22 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As mentioned above, dialogue and scripting are akin to a Google translation of Chinese into English .

The cast is not only stereotyped, but the stereotypes don't even fit the roles in most cases, namely the main characters .

Then there is the cutting; not many movies manage to get a brief intro scene wrong, this one does . And just when you think it can't get worse, and this was just a small hick-up, you get to the main part , and the actors start talking . They never really communicate, never really interact, but rather are acting alongside each other .

Supposedly the movie is about civil rights, racism and all that, yet it might as well be about giant spiders or facebook parties - the topic never gets across , it's so utterly undermined by the poor execution of the movie and reduced to a crudely painted backdrop .
