    Jan 22, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Spiritual depth
    Cons: Too much fluff between "moments"

    Summary: The Hurricane. A hurricane. A whirling force, fierce and terribly devistating. So goes the film by the same title. I won't go into all the detail on Denzel Washington's exceptional performance in this film - and it is beautiful as a Frazier left hook ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: heartwarming
    Cons: long

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Uplifting, hope-filled, it restores your faith in mankind.
    Cons: The first hour dragged a little for me.

    Summary: Of course, Norman Jewison has taken some artistic license in the making of the film. Of course, in the name of of such, some of the characters in the film are actually composites, but overall The Hurricane is a story of heart, hope, love and ... read more

    Pros: depicts Carter's story very well
    Cons: the ending of the movie seemed sudden

    Summary: I am not so much impressed by the film, but I am impressed by Denzel Washington's portrayal of Mr. Carter. Washington captured the essence of Mr. Carter so well that he even sounded like him; I could have sworn I was watching the real man in ... read more

    Jan 20, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: great movie
    Cons: no cons

    Summary: A victim of great racial prejudice, Carter's ordeal is the kind that evokes great, fiery emotions -- anger, mostly. But The Hurricane sets out to do more than rile the viewer. Director Norman Jewison is just as interested in the events leading up to ... read more

    Pros: Would be able to recommend it to a friend.
    Cons: A couple of low points.

    Summary: I believe that the movie is very well put into perspective, though it was a little biased against inner-city schools. It was based on a true story, so we all know how some movies don’t quite have the attention getters they need, but The Hurricane was ... read more

    Cons: Honest portayal of real hate and cruelty.

    Cons: Shallow supporting cast development, some dialogues could use some polish

    Summary: I've always been a fan of Denzel Washington, because I think of him as an actor who doesn't just make movies so that he can get his money. His movies usually have some meaning behind them, and they're usually power-packed dramas. The Hurricane is not ... read more

    Not yet rated.
    Pros: Great acting and moving story
    Cons: Completely unobjective at is told entirely through the hero's perspective.

    Summary: If the Academy does not give Denzel Washington the award this year, than they are as racist as the people depicted in this movie. This was by far the best performance of the entire year. Unlike Jim Carrey's impersonation of Andy Kaufman in this year's ... read more
