More of a story of the murders than any thing else.
15 September 1999 | by (Auburn, Me) – See all my reviews

Had the tragic events of 12 June 94 never occurred and a TV film about famed athletic celebrity O.J.Simpson been made how different it would have been. This made for television movie includes various parts of Simpson's life but all essentially are included to project a negative image of Simpson. Of course it is now impossible to talk of or remember one of college and pro footballs greatest players without the subject of the murders coming up. The film is not exactly a story of his life but more the story of the double murders of his former wife and the unfortunate Ron Goldman. The entire murder episode regarding Simpson is clearly the saddest chapter in the history of any sports figure ever. It seems that with this picture the makers would have done better to call it the `O.J. Simpson murders' rather than call it The O.J Simpson Story.
