Editorial Reviews

Nate Parker (The Great Debaters) stars with Golden Globe-winner Rick Schroder (TV's 24) in this electrifying true story as told in the award-winning book by Timothy Tyson. When a black Vietnam War vet is murdered by whites in small-town North Carolina, it sparks a firestorm of violent protest. Amid the rising chaos, a local teacher (Parker) and newly arrived preacher (Schroder) will risk everything to see justice done and change the brutal legacy of the past. From writer/director Jeb Stuart (screenwriter of Die Hard), it's a powerful, emotionally explosive film the New York Times applauds as "...rich and fascinating."

    Blood Done Sign My NameI ordered this DVD since I know about this historical incident in Oxford, North Carolina. A little known killing in 1970 became the spark that set this town on fire literally and emotionally in pushing the white people of this community to start to accept the civil rights of blacks in that area. Ben Chavis,cousin of the black murdered man, went on to lead the NAACP and other causes for blacks nationally after leading protests in his home town of Oxford. Even though not as well known as Birmingham, Selma, and the like, it was a very important part of the civil rights movement in the 1970's. I recommend it highly and hope others buy it and watch it as well.

    Jeb Stuart's "Blood Done Sign My Name," based on the book of the same name by Timothy Tyson, is better for the story it tells than for its filmmaking craft. The story--about a racially motivated murder and the resulting civil rights activism in a small North Carolina town circa 1970--is so moving and vital that all Americans should know it. However, Stuart's direction--though solid and competent--is unexciting, and the performances are good but not outstanding. There are so many characters and plotlines that none of the actors or characters has a chance to stand out. In the end, the film seems too diffuse. The photography and music are notable. I would give this film three and a half stars if I could; it's a cut above the mediocrity implied in a three-star rating, but not quite good enough to merit the endorsement implied by four.

    Love this movie. It was filmed in Monroe, NC at my work place, the historical courthouse which is a beautiful building. It was exciting to have the filming done around us. My then teen daughter was in the movie and they treated her like a princess. The story line and acting is excellent. It's a shame that the cd arrived with half the shrink wrap torn, so unlike Amazon. The packaging was fine which makes me think the wrap was half off before shipping. I wanted to present this DVD as a replacement one for my daughter who was in this movie as a keepsake. And the clam shell was all scratched up, but the packaging was not, it was perfect.

    This DVD is in fine shape and played very well. I had loved the book by Timothy Tyson, and hoped the film did it justice. It was well done and interesting, but not very true to the story. Although I would not recommend this film, I would not hesitate to order from this vendor again. The DVD arrived on a timely basis, and was in very good condition. Also, the price was right!

    I have read the book and seen the movie. The book involves more than the movie. As happens with a lot of books,in order to have a regular length movie,some of the book is not told. I do think Jeb Stuart did an excellent version in his movie. I think the paralells that are presented to the veiwers of small town politics, and black and white responses are very accurate. I live in a very similar area not far from the town in which all this occurred. My father was the District Attorney in this case. This is a true representaion and should be a lesson to all in civil rights and justice(or injustice). I highly reccommend both the book and the movie.

    Small town in North Carolina rocked by racial murder; the 70's don't seem that long ago in this provocative and sometimes inspiring film, that remains decisive even in the present day. Based on the historical novel by Tim Tyson

    This movie which tells the story from the book of the same name concisely and with great emotion is an important historically accurate account of the struggle for equality in 1970's eastern North Carolina.
    As an English teacher, I found it very helpful in bringing the themes of To Kill a Mockingbird closer to home for my students.

    I watched this movie for the first time a couple of weeks ago and I was very deeply moved. When I tuned in, I expected to see another "Mississippi Burning" or similar story, where the African-American experience is secondary to the flick serving as a vehicle for mainstream stars. Well, I was surprised - this is NOT that film! While Tim Tyson understandably shares his father's experience and valor, he does so in a very sensitive manner that does not white-wash the true story on which this film is based. Rather, he clearly brings to our faces the HORROR of racism and bigotry in modern-day America (this heinous murder and miscarriage of justice occurred in 1970). If you haven't seen this movie, I highly recommend that you do. I also plan to go back and read the book as well.
