Audience Reviews for The Wronged Man

    This got an extra half point for being a true story. Imagine being falsely accused of child rape and being thrown in prison. Then DNA finally becomes available and you can''t afford it. You finally get assistance but you end up being imprisoned for 22 years. I think the state of La owes this poor man an apology and some dough!

    Erin Brokovich as it might have been made for the Lifetime network -- i.e. stripped of much that would keep a person's interest very long. Ormond's not bad as the noble paralegal, and the gross inequities of the case deserved big-screen treatment. But...director McLoughlin hasn't found ways to give his movie character, and the result is desperately bland.

    Every single Lifetime Channel movie I've ever seen has sucked except for this 1.If I would've known this was a Lifetime movie when I rented it from Redbox, I probably wouldn't have rented it
