I took a Jesus freak to this film and he pointed out to me that they cursed 5 times. I thought that was odd and oh yeah I'm going to hell b.c. the Jesus freak said I shouldn't see 'R' rated movies. Other than that this is a great film about being screwed by the man for 20 years and then getting out of prison with 200 bucks and a bus ticket. It's like Rocky meets Jail house rock. A good flick.

When I saw this movie I was like here we go again. A black man gets framed for a crime he did not commit. It took years to get this man from behind bars. Our judicial system needs an over haul. How could people sit back and look the other way? When will we realize that if it affects one it affects all? I was glad to see whites coming to the aid of this man-not because he was black but because these Canadians saw him as he is-a human. Great job Denzel.

In my American Citizen class, we had to watch this movie. I thought that it was a great movie! Denzel shows so much emotion in the movie, especially when he's in jail and he has 2 personalities. The movie got me really interested, I loved it.

Denzel should have gotten the Oscar for this movie. It went to Kevin Spacey instead for American Beauty. With all due respect to Spacey, Denzel worked much harder on his portryal of Rubin Carter in this film. You won't be able to take your eyes off of him. I read a bio of Rubin Carter and was interested enough to see this movie. It's well worth your time. Denzel just keeps getting better.
