Trivia

The scene in which the ROTC building was burned had to be reshot, because the original fire got out of control. That meant the ROTC facade had to be rebuilt in two days. See more »

KENT STATE... more fluff than fact!
16 August 1999 | by (South Florida, USA) – See all my reviews

This movie is not an accurate depiction of what REALLY occurred at Kent State in May of 1970.

I filled out a review form for more detail, but in short, this movie is pure fantasy from the movie set to the storyline. The only people who should view this movie are history scholars that want an example of self-serving media manipulation of historical facts. This movie, because of theatrical license, pays no respect to Kent State University, the City of Kent, or the students that were killed and wounded.

No student at Kent State deserved the ultimate results, but promoting a phony docu-drama makes a mockery of the whole tragic situation. I was there. The video is a joke.
