Movie was excellent 2 thumbs up!!!
21 May 2004 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

This was an excellent re-enactment of the Pamela Smart story. I have been wanting to see it again for years and up until a few minutes ago I was unaware that it could be purchased. I can't wait to add it to my video library. I think everyone in the movie did an excellent job. I think that a lot of people misunderstood the movie. If u followed the story at the time the movie was pretty much factual to what went on. In fact i just watched American justice last night and it was a documentary about the greg smart murder it got me thinking about that movie again and thats why i looked it up on the internet and i saw someone elses comment about how horrible the movie was and i felt i had to make a comment because i totally disagree. To anyone out there who hasn't seen it I definitely recommend it.
