Flawed but Interesting..

Based on the actual events of the West Memphis Three, where three young boys were savagely murdered in West Memphis, Arkansas in 1993. Spurred on by the demand from a grieving town, the local police act quickly to bring three "devil-worshipping" teenagers to trial. With their lives hanging in the balance, investigator Ron Lax is trying to find the truth between the town's need for justice and the guilt of the accused. I think that Devil's Knot (2013) is a very complex film for a very complex story that although it does kinda do justice to it's story it misses the point to other areas, Colin Firth and Reese Witherspoon are really good in their roles especially Reese as the grieving mother but everyone else besides them is just alright especially her husband Terry played by Alessandro Nivola feels kinda miscasted and except maybe one or two scenes where he shows some emotion for the rest of the film he is actually a robot, the Hobbs also had a little girl a 2nd child in general but we only see her and hear about her in the entire film only 3 times and that is kinda disappointing it actually makes the parents look like the "bad people" of the story since they hardly ever seen with her that just makes you wonder of who feeds her, dresses her and with who she stays with when her Parents aren't home. But although flawed the movie has some redeeming moments such as the leads, the interesting story, the court room scenes that were pretty good into building the story and the puzzles and a chilling ending that just makes you wish that you knew more about the true events of the film more. Overall this is a film that does it's job quite well but if you expect another "Prisoners" kind of thriller? Expect to be disappointed. (8/10)

Mediocre and redundant film based on a well-known case

While not absolutely terrible, this movie seems quite redundant, given the large number of well-produced documentaries on the case of the West Memphis 3. I have seen all of the documentaries and I was able to follow the plot but for someone who has not seen them, the action might be confusing. Indeed, the case is too complex to be condensed in 2 hours time. As a standalone film this is not a bad effort but at times the plot does indeed look convoluted. The performances are decent although not great. Reese Witherspoon stood out as one of the victims' mothers. I expected a little more from the esteemed director Atom Egoyan but this was one of his weaker efforts.

A fun, suspenseful thriller

Such a treat to see Colin Firth in this role; the last movie I watched that featured Firth in the legal profession was "The Advocate," which is an interesting film, and I couldn't help but think of his role (as attorney) in that film while watching this one. This movie is like a really satisfying episode of the x-files, but real-life; not sci-fi.
