Overall, this one is a very good film featuring a stellar performance from Denzel Washington, as expected. This one is an interesting mix of genres, all of which are used very well.

This one is an interesting mix of genres, all of which are used very well. In addition, the film is just very inspirational. At times, it can teeter to being a bit too cheesy, but the most part, everything here is clicking. This one is very moving at times and Washington does a great job playing the sympathetic character and really makes you feel horrible for the situation he found himself in. Now, the film does not appear to be an overly accurate portrayal of facts, but as it is a film, that is too be expected. The only thing that really stuck out that bothered me was there were some things that were odd, namely connections between events that were never made. There are not many of these, but they are crucial enough to be worth mentioning. In spite of that, however, The Hurricane is a very well made and brilliantly acted film that will undoubtedly move you. Expand

I have no idea whether The Hurricane was guilty or not (in real life the story was different than presented in the movie), but Mr. Denzel made his "character" in the movie lively and sympathetic with his outstanding performance. Overall theI have no idea whether The Hurricane was guilty or not (in real life the story was different than presented in the movie), but Mr. Denzel made his "character" in the movie lively and sympathetic with his outstanding performance. Overall the story is good and rather staightforward, driven by Mr. Denzel Washington's powerful performance. Worth a look. Expand

This is a great movie. Denzel Washington released several classic movies around the time this one came out. Remember the Titans came out a year later.

Remember the Titans came out a year later. I don't think anyone could have played Hurricane Carter better than Denzel. He's the perfect choice. I already knew the jist of the Rubin Carter's story before I watched the film adaptation but it was nice to get a visual of what it is like to be falsely imprisoned. Expand
