Bad performances, typical Made For TV series
12 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

The story itself is a typical "made for TV" mini-series which is inferior to any theatrical movie. The story itself was interesting as it brought out many aspects of the case that were unknown to most people. I didn't follow the case at the time it happened so I found it interesting to see all that happened.

HOWEVER, many performances, particularly by Travolta, Schwimmer and Gooding were cheesy and wooden. Many times it seemed like they were just waiting for their next "dramatic" line, especially Travolta and Schwimmer. And I'm not sure what's happened to Travolta, maybe a dozen face lifts? When his mouth moves it barely moves, like his face is going to crack if he opens it too wide! The thing I got most tired of was the obvious "all white men are evil" attitude of the series. Yes I understand that there were racial tensions at that time (like there's not now?) but after the first 100 scenes where blacks were lamenting the fact that every white cop was out to get blacks for no reason, it got really old. That took at least two points off my rating. Three points off for the acting. Another point off because it's "made for TV". Is it worth watching? Yes but it's not something you will be glued to your TV for or binge watch on Netflix.
