Rubin Carter was about to be on top of the boxing world when it all came crashing to a halt. Carter was out driving around with a friend after a fight and was stopped by the cops. That same night in Paterson, New Jersey there had been a bar room shooting in which the perpetrators shot and killed three people. Carter and his friend were brought in for questioning and ultimately they were identified... read more

Since I have a weak spot for Denzel Washington and since there was a pretty good buzz around this flick, I thought I should check it out. It was also one of the last movies directed by Norman Jewison (who seems to be retired nowadays) and probably one of his very best. To be honest, I don’t think it is really a great movie but it is sure a good one. First of all, Denzel Washington was pretty goo... read more

A good movie

“Since I have a weak spot for Denzel Washington and since there was a pretty good buzz around this flick, I thought I should check it out. It was also one of the last movies directed by Norman Jewison (who seems to be retired nowadays) and probably one of his very best. To be honest, I don’t think it is really a great movie but it is sure a good one. First of all, Denzel Washington was pretty good and really convincing in this (he even won the Silver Bear at the Berlin Film festival for his performance). You could argue that, as usual, Washington keeps playing ‘the righteous man’ and therefore remains in his comfort zone but, once again, he does it so well, he is so charismatic, he is basically one of the very few actors for whom I never get tired of, even though they keep playing ba” read more

50 Biggest Lies In Biopic History (50 movies items)

" The Untruth: Rubin ‘Hurricane’ Carter is wrongly convicted of a triple homicide but some plucky Canadian human rights campaigners find the truth. The Truth: This is one story that is so complicated it had to be simplified for the sake of sanity, but the fact is, defence lawyers found the evidence that freed our hero, not some plucky Canadians. The film would have been a week long if it were down to lawyers. "

Top 30 Denzel Washington films (30 movies items)

"Needless to say, this is one of Denzel's best performances ever. He portrays Rubin "Hurricane" Carter, a successful boxer, who is sentenced to 20 years in jail for something he didn't do. Although the story is important and the movie raises important questions, it is again Denzel's performance which makes this movie unforgettable. He literally transforms himself physically, mentally and spiritually, and it's worth noting that he trained boxing for over a year to prepare himself for the role. De"

“Hate got me into this place and love got me out”.

“Rubin Carter was about to be on top of the boxing world when it all came crashing to a halt. Carter was out driving around with a friend after a fight and was stopped by the cops. That same night in Paterson, New Jersey there had been a bar room shooting in which the perpetrators shot and killed three people. Carter and his friend were brought in for questioning and ultimately they were identified by a man who could barely see. Carter was sentenced to three life sentences in Federal Prison. A young man named Lesra happened to stumble upon the book Carter wrote during his stay in prison and was moved by what he read. Lesra was moved so much that him and a group of friends vowed to prove Carters innocence.
