Audience Reviews for The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson

  • Oct 06, 2022
    This was one of the best anthology series I have ever seen. The writing and plot was strong, but the acting was OUTSTANDING. My favorite character was Johnnie Cochran, his acting was intense. I also enjoyed how close the actors looked to the people they were trying to portray.
  • May 05, 2022
    Just plain fantastic. Everyone played there characters very well and acurateley except for Cuba Gooding Jr. who acted well, just not as Oj. I especially liked David Schwimmer as Robert Kardashian. Eventhough much is obviously fictionalised, many real moments were captured extraordinarily well without just remaking the scenarios. Riveting dialouges too. Go watch this show.
  • Dec 19, 2021
    Gripping and riveting. Provides the constant delivery of tension you'd have experienced live during the nationally televised double homicide trial of former football star OJ Simpson.
  • Jun 26, 2021
    A stunning show. So well portrayed, All around great acting especially David Schwimmer as Robert Kardashian.
  • Apr 26, 2021
    "If the glove doesn't be fit, then you must acquit." This re-enactment of the moments that lead up to the trial, as well as the trial itself is damn near perfect. The accuracy of retelling history is very important here, and the writers make sure that they execute, with the relationship between Clark and Dardin even being portrayed correctly. This has got to be Sarah Paulson's most compelling performance of her career. Anyone who's a fan of AHS needs to give this installment from Ryan Murphy, Falchuk, and friends a watch. Hats off to the writers/creators Larry Karaszewski & Scott Alexander.
  • Mar 30, 2021
    Famous people abound in this liberally written and acted docudrama. Can't believe these solid actors agreed to star in this flick. It improves as it goes along, but so much of it is simply fictional. It's hard to see such an important travesty of justice treated in this trivial fashion.
  • Mar 27, 2021
    Good, informative and at times even slightly humorous Account of the O.J. Simpson case is thoroughly watchable, but the quality of the performances are variable from excellent (Paulson, Brown) to campy (Travolta, Gooding Jr.).
  • Jan 04, 2021
    A thrilling and well done piece of pulp fiction. Murphy at his best.
  • Jan 01, 2021
    the verdict was never the end game. the show is gripping even in its slowest moments. must watch, even for those who think they know about the case.
  • Oct 14, 2020
    Far from a sleazy recount of high-profile opulence, The People V. O.J. Simpson is rich with accurate detail, and grapples with the complex social issues surrounding the trial.
