Matthew McConaughey got it right and spot on in 'A Time To Kill'. This film is a fine example of a great movie. It has all the elements one would look for in a movie. From the first scene until the last it keeps you interested. None of that 45 minute wait before things start getting good. Its a little over 2 hours long, but damn well worth it. Movies like this are what make an actors career and give him his big break, and I'm pretty sure McConaughey did get his big break after this one.
I have added this film to my list of favorites and highly recommend it! You will be entertained and on the edge of your seat for from the start until the credits start rolling.
