Format: DVD
Movies based from real tragedies can be done if those movies are presenting accurate facts coming from certifiable sources; are filmed years after the case is "closed". But in the case of this movie based on the Meredith Kercher tragedy, this is not what happened. Instead, the movie uses innacurate sources and reports, along with scandal newspapers' details to present the people involved, even inventing behaviours and elements that never happened. Which I think is horrible and wrong. Because in this movie, Amanda Knox and Rafaele Solecito are presented as cunning individuals while important parts and facts of their lives are obliterated. Facts that prove their innocence and humanity. Proofs that prove they never attacked Meredith Kercher. That the sole culprit in this murder is Rudy Guede. As this movie was done and broadcast in 2011, it also put in danger the innocence of two individuals who were still on Appeal at the time. Which is reckless and irresponsible.

Also when the actors portraying the people involved are terrible, not credible, and play their parts using whatever lousy Method acting Hollywood or Studios believe makes its puppets portray reality, it's horrible because their portrayals hurt reputations, in particular Amanda Knox's as she's played out by Hayden Panetierre as some Hollywood starlet in Italy, which is not at all how the real Amanda Knox speaks and behaves. And when the actors interviewed (ex: Hayden Panetierre) explain their interests in interviews as "just doing our job", to win their bread, butter, and milk, well I think it's unnacceptable and pretty pathetic. Especially as LifeTime is the one producing and releasing this scandalous pornography.

Format: DVD
With the appeals process barely begun, I'm not sure how useful an Amanda Knox movie is. Maybe she did it, maybe she didn't. Many people (excluding those affiliated with the disturbed True Justice group, anyway) have read the numerous books and articles and have concluded: they just can't decide who really killed Meredith Kercher. Was it Amanda and Raffaelle? Rudy Guede? This film doesn't answer those questions conclusively (nor should it) but until this appeal is finished, I think it was premature to film the story. The Kercher family's feelings should have been considered, they did not want to see this on TV.

But it's filmed, and out, and here's my review.

This is a one-watcher, not something you'll pop in the DVD player whenever you want some drama or intrigue. I was impressed with the visual attention to detail. Hayden Panetierre is a talented young actress and she seems to do her best with the material available to her. It's the look of things that I liked -- she looks like Amanda, and the other actors look like the people they are supposed to be. A lot of events happen on screen the way that we've read. Others do not. The police investigation portion was interesting. The trial portion was too brief. The conclusions were open-ended. It is what it is. It wasn't jaw-dropping and it wasn't terrible. However, with Amanda behind bars appealing, and Meredith's murder still in question, it's also not over.

If you like the true crime genre, this may appeal to you, but emotions still run high. I saw it, I was relatively unaffected by it, although it was nice to have visuals to go with the books.

3 stars.

Reckless and Cruel Jan. 21 2013
By Thomas Mininger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
The irresponsible inaccuracies in this production are bad enough, but the editing of the documentary that followed the original airing was deplorable.

The original documentary included forensic evidence and absence of evidence commentary which clearly showed that Amanda and Raffaele could not have been involved in the crime, as the appeals court eventually ruled.

But I guess that would have damaged the titillation factor that Lifetime was gunning for. It's sad that human lives are held hostage to our insatiable demand for entertainment. Things haven't changed since the Roman Holidays at the Coliseum.

By Lady Raven RAVE! - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This was an ok movie, withesaying that and the issues still being current and sensitive I really don't want to say much. I don't know if everything that was shown if it was actually how it happen or it lifetime fabricated other parts. After watching I still have some questions here and there about what took place. I will say this I do travel but not alot but when I travel to another country I have to be very aware because you just never know.

The whole thing is so sad and in the end it's the victim that nobody remembers just this big case.

Regardless of anything, this book is based off another book called, "Angel Face, the true story of student killer Amanda Knox.
That should say everything...

Even name actors can't take away the sting of exploitation. July 13 2011
By DVD Verdict - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Judge Gordon Sullivan, DVD Verdict-- Ignoring all the real-life hubbub about Kercher and Knox, Murder on Trial in Italy is an okay made-for-TV film. Hayden Panettiere does a fine job making Knox a bit ambiguous. She doesn't play her as the trumped-up sexpot of the media, nor as the innocent angel her supporters would have you believe in. Instead, she's confused young woman who we can't quite believe. Some of her actions can put down to her age and inexperience, but others are a bit more troubling. Knox's supposed partner in crime, Guiliano Mignini, is ably played by Vincent Riotta, who bears a striking resemblance to his real-life counterpart in some shots. The film also managed to snag the dependable Marcia Gay Harden as Amanda's mother. She's the one responsible for really driving home the prosecutorial aspect of Amanda's treatment.

Despite the sensational aspects of the film's title, and the trial, the film could be a lot worse. Sticking to a fairly simple flashback structure, it starts with the discovery of the body and works backwards to fill in the details of Amanda's life.

Amanda Knox: Murder on Trial in Italy comes to DVD in a simple, solid package. The anamorphic widescreen transfer is bright and colorful, belying the dark nature of the story. I didn't notice any significant compression or authoring problems, and this DVD looks about as good as you can expect from contemporary television. The audio is a bit less impressive, but totally serviceable. Dialogue is kept clear in this simple stereo mix, never overwhelmed by effects or music.
