  1. 75
    While it is obvious that the filmmakers went into this project with an agenda, they did try to give each side a chance to have its say.
  2. 70
    Meticulously uncovers a trail of outrageous force and craven concealment.
  3. 60
    The filmmakers build an argument that is both intellectual and emotional, concentrating as much on the forensic evidence as on Ms. Rosario's passionate commitment to finding justice for her son.
  4. 60
    A disturbing examination of what appears to be the definition of a "bad" police shooting.
  5. Reviewed by: Ronnie Scheib

    Film makes a strong case for some form of miscarriage of justice and subsequent high level cover-up in the Rosario shootings.
