Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: An exhaustively researched - and, quite frankly, very exhausting - adaptation of journalist Mara Leveritt's book.
Rotten: A rather dull docudrama that doesn't have a strong reason to exist, outside of perhaps a financial one.
Rotten: Comes across as a cinematic, slightly dramatized Cliffs Notes edition a story that's been told often.
Rotten: If anything positive can be gained from Devil's Knot, it's that hopefully it will lead new viewers to the magnificent experiences that await them by watching the superior Paradise Lost trilogy and the conclusive West of Memphis
Paradise Lost it isn't.
Watch the documentary Paradise Lost. This movie is a poor representation of facts.
iTunes Can't Pick Them Anymore
I have been disappointed by most of the iTunes pre-order promos and picks. Devils knot was, by any measure a loser. I rarely agree with the Tomatometer, but this time, "Rotten" really sums this stinker up. It's not worth the watch rented or bought. Don't say I didn't warn you. And iTunes, never again do I bother with your poor performance either.
Really Enjoyed the Movie
Realistic acting, suspenseful story. Really enjoyed this movie.
