Rating: 3/4 -- A reminder that there's still a lot to be said for the good old-fashioned inspirational Hollywood movie.

Rating: 3.5/5 -- Stirring but schmaltzy.
New York Times

Rating: B -- There is a talented supporting cast, but they are not given much opportunity to break out of the two-dimensional symbolism they are cloaked with in the script by Armyan Bernstein and Dan Gordon. Full Review

...Washington delivers a soaring, intense performance, arguably the richest in his impressive career...

...[Washington] proves yet again he's a champ at humanizing larger-than life figures...
USA Today

...With power, intensity, remarkable range and an ability to disturb that is both unnerving and electric, it is more than Washington's most impressive part, it sums up his career as well...
Los Angeles Times

Rating: 2/5 -- Startlingly inept coming from a generally accomplished director like Norman Jewison. Full Review

Product Description:

The inspirational true story of boxer Rubin "The Hurricane" Carter, who was wrongfully convicted of murder in 1966. Told in a series of flashbacks, Washington immerses himself in the role of Carter with a charged, intense passion. The story jumps around in time, from Carter's troubled childhood, to his arrest in 1966, to his fruitless appeals, settling in 1983, when a group of three white adults and a black teenager dedicate their lives to freeing him. Jewison's assured direction keeps these stories from getting jumbled and blurring together. Even in flashbacks, the plot moves forward dramatically, to its eventual rousing conclusion. Based on the novels THE 16TH ROUND by Carter and LAZARUS AND THE HURRICANE by Chaiton and Swinton.
