Deadline is my kind of movie, a heartfelt story that moved me to tears on several occasions. By the end, I was so thankful that I'd seen Deadline because it gave me hope for the future. Deadline tells the story of two investigative reporters, played by odd-couple Eric Roberts and Steve Talley, who get turned on to a cold case civil rights murder. Based on a true story, it has elements that are reminiscent of Ghosts of Mississippi and Mississippi Burning, but ultimately Deadline reminded me most of To Kill a Mockingbird. It's a story of race in the South and manages to show both how far we've come and how far we still have to go as a nation. Rather than dwell on the actual murder, Deadline focuses on the human toll of such crimes. The mother and the girlfriend of the slain black teenager are both permanently scarred by his murder, and that's not all of their pain. The entire town has never recovered from the murder. In some ways, Deadline is similar to the current Trayvon Martin case, giving it a timeliness that is almost surreal. But then I guess that's the point, since such things do seem to happen with distressing regularity. By the end of Deadline, I felt that such crimes may not have to always be part of our national ethos, that there is indeed hope that we can evolve as a people, that we may one day not have to seek justice, but simply be just in the first place.

This movie is okay, the dialogue is poorly written. It is a movie with a lot of old clichés. If you have not much to watch this is okay very predictable.

I'm not one to cry for a movie, but this one actually got me. Very powerful and timely, a story that had to be told. I went to Journalism school and can honestly say that this what journalism should be about - not the stuff they teach you in those classes. Highly recommended and one you'll want to own.

As independent movies go, this one is pretty good. There are moments of unintentional humor due to some acting/writing/editing, but that gives the movie some of its charm. I understand they used many local (Nashville area) actors/actresses. Some are quite exceptional, and some are less so, but overall the quality is good. It is certainly worth an hour and a half to rent or buy.

'Deadline' is a movie about a young person determined to investigate the unsolved murder of an African American child twenty years ago. It's a compelling story and must see drama that will grip you from start to finish!

There's nothing like a sleeper film that really delivers. All the pieces come together in this movie including a solid cast, a moving and thrilling story-line and great production value. It's nice to see a movie that incorporates a topical and timeless plot supported by good acting and great pace. Very entertaining and definitely worth renting or owning.

I've read the book and seen the movie. They are both great. Mark Ethridge did an excellent job translating his original book, Grievances, into a screenplay. I was most impressed by the producers ability to update the story to more contemporary times without sacrificing any of the drama or relevance.
