Nnamdi Asomugha met with the real Carl King on a few occasions to help with understand the character. Asomugh stated that it was difficult for King to think back on these events mainly because they took place so long ago. Those Asomugh did quickly take notice that King had a "big heart" and was "very focused and determined." See more »
Before I start I simply must question the 6.5 rating here. It's nothing but wrong.
This is an evocative emotional film. It will get to you and you'll have no other choice except to watch and see. That means it tells a riveting story well. I'm compelled to say that I can only hope the scum that was detective Cassals has remorse and humbled himself asking for forgiveness, otherwise he, and his ilk, can rot, well you know.
Colin Warner at only 18 years was robbed of over two decades of his life. How can this happen? Apparently he is only one of many and that makes his story even more compelling. Swept up in a fever of convict, convict, and convict this is definitely the dark side of law enforcement that, unfortunately, is only in recent years being exposed-hopefully to the benefit of all.
This is a must see excellent Netflix production. Yes, TV can be the cliched "boob tube", however when a story with the power of good trumping wrong is done so well it is anything but. It's a tragedy it took over two decades for the truth and justice to prevail so, hopefully, it will aid to make this kind of wrongful conviction ever in the past tense. To sum it up: I'm totally impressed with this excellent bit of storytelling because it connects inside of me and has the power to help create a more transparent and fair justice system.
