Great movie

    CriticAndProud What's wrong with Idris?

    The movie definitely strengthened my view that the death penalty on a National or State level is never justified.

    Checkman Getting older and balder

    In my younger days I was very pro-death penalty. I'm now 48 and I've been a full-time police officer for the past sixteen years (and three months). Strangely I find that my taste for blood and vengeance has diminished as the years have gone by and I have to deal with the carnage that people can commit. I'm not necessarily anti-death penalty, but my enthusiasm for it has definitely waned. Not sure why. Maybe because I'm a little closer to my own end. Easier to be more in favor of death when one is twenty I guess. Especially other people's death. We (well at least I was) tend to be more self-righteous when we're younger.

    ...I'm still that way and I'm 55 old friend.....the legal system is a joke.....vengeance/justice needs meted out immediately....not strung along for years.....

    I thought this movie should have beaten out American Beauty for an Oscar and I really liked American Beauty.
    It didn't change my opinion on the death penalty. Grishams non fiction The Innocent Man came closer, at least made me question it more.
