    The movie tells this story in a traditional, straightforward way. No fancy footwork. No chewing the scenery. Meat and potatoes, you could say, but it's thoughtful and moving.
  2. “Blood” may carry us into the past, but the unhappy effects linger today, like pollution darkening a sky that never turned completely blue.
  3. The actors do a lot to dimensionalize the material. Parker's Chavis is especially sharp, creating a man with a subtly burning fuse.
  4. Suffers from an awkward, plodding structure that robs it of much of its dramatic effect.
  5. An earnest, if inert, civil rights docudrama clearly shot on the cheap (many of the wigs appear to have been borrowed from the Black Dynamite set).
  6. Reviewed by: Ronnie Scheib

    Comes off as a painfully old-fashioned, flatly directed exercise in passionless historical reenactment.
  7. 25
    Rolls out stiff clichés to tell a familiar story of racial injustice in the South.
