3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, but way too soon May 2 2011
By LeBrain HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars ;0/ March 6 2011
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.

1.0 out of 5 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.

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...

4.0 out of 5 stars Obtaining more understanding and truth May 11 2014
By Debra - Published on Amazon.com
The movie was very good. Makes me want to dig into the truth about the events that took place. As I don't always catch the news I do not know if the movie portrayed the truth or fiction of what happened but I will probably look online now to find out my own answers to compare to the movie. I liked it. If you were interested in this event you will like to see the movie's portrayal.
