    I give this a 5 star rating hoping to promote public awareness to this case and how daring the production team is in going against such large corrupt institutions such as LAPD and District Attorney. The case itself is interesting and complex. But the movie storyline could have been more simplified and straightened out. The characters were a bit too shallow.

    Great performances across the board. Whitaker and Depp are wonderful as their characters develop a respectful friendship in spite of themselves. Very moving, real life, down-to-earth story that reels you in right from the beginning. Not a billion dollar blockbuster but definitely deserved a big screen showing.

    Mediocre yet it has a decent second half. The scenes set in the past are only interesting part of the movie until the ending, that is.

    Great movie...Well written and well acted and thankfully not a 3 hour yarn. Depp is back to doing what he does best

    "LAbyrinth" in name and in fact: the film struggles to shed light and tends to get lost in a flood of words. (Mauro Lanari)
