Plot Outline:

Academy Award winner Denzel Washington plays Rubin "Hurricane" Carter, a man who, in the prime of his boxing career finds himself wrongfully convicted of murder. Sentenced to life in prison, Carter's published memoir, 'The Sixteenth Round', inspired a teenager from Brooklyn and three Canadian activists who believed in the truth, to join forces with Carter to prove his innocence. Their extraordinary efforts ultimately secure his release, leaving "Hurricane" to sum up his 20 years in prison for a crime he didn't commit by simply stating, "Hate got me into this place, love got me out." Don't miss the movie Rolling Stone called, "A stirring fight for freedom! Denzel Washington at his powerful, poignant best!" -- Steve

Denzel Washington gives an underappreciated, simmering performance of a man falsely imprisoned. The film balances the legal thrill of the team trying to prove Hurricane's innocence with Washington's character's own outbursts of genuine emotion. It's entirely engrossing and moving.

One of Denzel's most memorable performances. I really enjoyed watching this film on the theater. The supporting actors did a decent job and the plot/script was enlightening. Its theme is universal, having friends and the love/trust rendered was displayed efficiently. The style of direction was really good. A real life Shawshank Redemption, a must see film.

It's very sad story. But, you can really believe every part of it.

An amazing movie. I am surprised that so few people have seen it. Denzel Washington gives one of his greatest performances, for which he won the Oscar for Best Actor. An inspirational classic that deserves a larger following.
