While there is some controversy as to whether Hurricane Carter was really innocent or not (at least there are some voices on the web claiming he's not), certainly the movie is worth watching. What's really amazing about it is that it shows that anyone can be used to change to world, even a young teenager. Also a great truth is brought out in the movie, which is, "We don't find the book we should read, but they find us," and perhaps in some ways that also applies to movies (unless we get so addicted and watch just about anything).

One of the outstanding lessons of the movie for me personally, though, is the fact that you can find total liberty and freedom inside a prison cell, because its overcoming our own demons that will truly liberate us.
