Review

Recommended. Though it demands considerable amount of patience, ‘Just Mercy’ is a truly fantastic offering that will make you feel opposing emotions, overwhelmingly together at once. You will feel like crying and smiling at the same time, but know that you are not going crazy. We experienced the same exact bursts: Darkened teary eyes side by side with colourful rainbow smiles.

Like holding a vibrating volcano in your hands, a little over fifteen minutes into this movie, you will already start feeling its bubbles rumbling violently down under. Eventually it will explode, carrying you along with it. Your head will expand from joy and your heart will be wrenched out by the wickedness it paints. ‘Just Mercy’ will shake the humanity in you. Just delicious!
