Movie Reviews

  • there's never once an impression that Barry Alexander Brown knows what story he wants to tell in "Son of the South"; there's never any focus, and worst of all, it never makes the case that a movie about Bob Zellner is intriguing let alone necessary
    2 of 5 by Robert Kojder [Flickering Myth ]
  • executive produced by Spike Lee, Barry Alexander Brown’s drama features fine performances across the board, and a vivid evocation of a tumultuous period
    by Joe Leydon [Variety ]
  • audiences won't learn more from "Son of the South" about the Civil Rights era as a whole, but it does offer a reminder to those who would be allies about the importance of standing up to injustice, disenfranchisement, and discrimination
    3 of 5 by Sandie Angulo Chen [Common Sense Media ]
  • accepted on its terms, the film does a reasonably absorbing job of dramatizing how Bob Zellner's convictions strengthened, pulling him away from the security of inaction
    by Ben Kenigsberg [New York Times ]
  • a true civil rights story worth telling, however quaintly; an emotionally charged story that packs a solid punch, serves as a valuable history lesson; The fight for equality isn't over, and this story is as relevant today..
    3 of 4 by Richard Roeper [Chicago Sun-Times ]
  • "Son of the South" is a pretty old-fashioned, unimaginative contribution to the filmography on the civil rights struggle, but it's earnest and instructive, and a tribute to one of its unsung heroes
    Review rate : B by Frank Swietek [One Guy's Opinion ]
