Holds your interest, cutting flashbacks into the real-time narrative. But it feels mechanical in its who-done-it-Agatha-Christie assortment of potential killers and major and minor conflicts dropped in regularly.
Great story neatly put together and tied up at the end, a homage to the US army's efforts in WW2 to overcome racism. Like many movies of the time, it has the style and pace of a play, making its points without ambiguity and at a fast clip to get it all in. It captures well the internalized racism among the victims of racism. A strong black character (Rollins) shows how it's done. Denzel Washington takes a minor part but the quality of his acting comes through. Howard Rollins is great in the lead part, the black investigating lawyer with a mission from Washington DC, I was thinking an older Denzel would have done the part better, perhaps so, but Rollins with his method acting captures the spirit of the times, Denzel could have been an anachronism in his acting style. Anyway, great movie.
