Movie Reviews

Thanks for finally putting this on dvd!
K. Lavelle | Des Moines, IA | 10/28/2007

"I have used an increasingly deteriorating videotape of the original broadcast on lifetime in my classroom for years, I'm glad that this film has finally gotten the recognition of a proper DVD release. Not only does this film dramatize an important and terrible event in the civil rights movement in the 1960s, it is a well acted and interesting film. This is a great teaching tool for college students because the 3 civil rights workers are the age of most traditional college students."
A Blunt Portrayal of A Violent Period in Our History

"I have waited some time for this movie to appear on DVD since I first saw it on television several years ago. This movie, rather than Mississippi Burning, does the best job treating the murder of three civil rights workers in Mississippi in 1964. This DVD illustrates the difficulties encountered by those who attempted to register blacks to vote in Mississippi during the racial strife that took place during the 1960s and eventually led to the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 through the efforts of President Lyndon Johnson. This movie can be shown in schools to students too young to appreciate what took place during that violent decade. Mississippi Burning has too much profanity to use in schools, and I believe Murder in Mississippi does a better job of covering this unnecessary tragedy anyway. America's history is not always lily-white, and this movie will show that even though great strides have been made much progress still needs to be made."
Great Movie!

"If the Civil Rights era, or just American history in general, fascinates you, then you'll love this movie. 10x better than Mississippi Burning, I recommend this movie.
These men died bravely for what they believed in, and this movie does them great justice. Great acting also. Made me cry."
MURDER IN MISSISSIPPI IS A CLASSIC MUST HAVE !! A+++

"MURDER IN MISSISSIPPI HAS TO BE A MUST HAVE FOR YOUR DVD COLLECTION
WHY IS THAT? THE STORY OF THE 3 CIVIL RIGHTS WORKERS WERE KILLED IN A VICIOUS AND BRUTAL SLAUGHTER. I DO AGREE THAT THE THEIR DEATHS WERE AS VICIOUS AS IT GOT. THE ENDING IS VERY GRAPHIC BUT NECESSARY TO SHOW YOU THE VIOLENCES AND BRUTALITY THAT THESE WORKERS SUFFER IN THE HANDS OF BIGOTRY. I LOVE THE MESSAGE THAT THIS MOVIE HAS TO OFFER WHICH IS REGISTER TO VOTE!!! IF OBAMA BECOMES PRESIDENT REMEMBER THAT HE MADE IT THERE BECAUSE PEOPLE LIKE MARTIN LUTHER KING, MALCOLM X, AND THE CIVIL RIGHT WORKERS WHO WANTED CHANGE IN AMERICAN VOTING SYSTEM AS WELL AS CHANGE IN OUR SOCIETY. REMEMBER PEOPLE IN THE STRUGGLE HAVE DIED TO MAKE SURE THAT YOUR RIGHT TO VOTE IS COUNTED, BY DISRESPECTING THEM VOTING PROCESS YOU DISRESPECT REASON WHY THESE INDIVIDUALS GAVE UP THEIR LIVES FOR THE CAUSE. I WILL TREASURE THIS MOVIE AND SHOW MY CHILDREN WHY ITS IMPORTANT TO VOTE . THE PERFORMANCES ARE EMMY WINNING. EVERYONE WAS BRILLIANT IN THIS. IT HAS A DEEP AND POWERFUL MESSAGE NOT ONLY ABOUT YOUR RIGHT TO VOTE BUT HOW COLOR SHOULD NOT BE A ISSUE WHEN YOU ARE FRIENDS. THAT BLACK AND WHITE CAN GET ALONG IF YOU DONT JUDGE THE PERSON BY THEIR SKIN BUY THE MOVIES ITS A CLASSIC."
