The Hurricane

As always when I am in front of the TV, I was scanning channels at almost the speed of light. A movie's opening credits were running and I stopped to spend some time on this channel. The movies was The Hurricane starring Denzel Washington.

This movie is inspired by the real story of Rubin "Hurricane" Carter, a famous American boxer between 1961 and 1966. This movie is about the story of Carter who fights all odds to finally triumph and walk out to freedom. He is supposedly set up for a triple murder that he has not committed. He is in prison for 30 long years and does not give up hope. It is a good movie to watch and inspirational too. The movie's tag line is " His greatest fight was for justice."

After watching the movie, I guess, and hopefully should not happen to others--justice delayed is definitely not justice denied. According to the IDMB, this movie won Denzel Washington, the Golden Globe best actor award and rightly so, since he is in complete control of the central character.

This time around, I spent an other wise dull Sunday fruitfully.
