Woods' performance as a wise-cracking bigot is one of the film's highlights.

    Woods, The Wise Cracking Racist

    James Woods has always been, I think, one of the most underrated actors in cinematic history, probably because of his narcissistic personality off screen. He doesn't disappoint, though, as Meadger Ever's killer in this. A remorseless man that killed the most promising civil rights leader after King got off with a little help from his friends until a crusading attorney went after him. A powerful movie and one that shouldn't be forgotten because the struggle is not yet over. Thank God, Byron De La Beckworth is gone from this Earth.

    After Justice

    Chasing after the muderer of of Meager Evers was a watershed moment in our civil rights history when he was convicted. Thankfully, they made a worthy movie of the hunt of the truly evil killer Byron De La Beckworth, played eerily well by James Woods.
