The Wrong Found Guilty
Throughout all different times in life, there are many people in life that encounter people in a negative way and end up wanting to take out revenge on the person. For instance some, people will bluff when doing a confession in court. Some times these people are just trying to place the person on trial behind bars in whatever way they can even if it means making up a lie while under oath. One time specifically was when this couple Lois and Robert Bentz were accused of sexually abusing children. When the truth ended up coming out and showing false accusations were made during the time of the trial that later were dismissed. The same thing happens in the movie The ...view middle of the document...

This view of Carter contributes to the accuracy of the movie.
There are other characters that contribute to the accuracy and/or inaccuracy of this movie as well. Lesra Martin, he is the young sixteen-year-old boy that first sees an interest in Carter after reading his autobiography The Sixteenth Round. Lesra Martin a boy taken in by Canadians went to this book selling with the Canadians, who’s his guardians and came back with his first book, The Sixteenth Round (Adams). In the movie, after reading this book he speaks with his Canadian guardians that had taken him in on wanting to write a letter to Mr. Carter (The Hurricane). As shown in the film, perhaps Jewison placed this in the movie, was to show the audience all the letters and many problems Martin and his guardians went through before he even met Carter the first time. Also, showing Martin’s persistency in believing that Carter was innocent from the beginning and that he was willing to do what it took to show others that as well.
The other characters within this movie are Martin’s Canadian guardians, Lisa Peters, Sam Chaiton, and Terry Swinton. Eventually, all four moved to Trenton to work full-time on Carter’s case, and finally, the Hurricane was freed,” (Adams). These were Martin’s guardians and Carter’s mainstream support system that were ready to do whatever to free an innocent man. Soon Swinton, Chaiton, Martin and Peters were visiting Carter in prison regularly. This perchance was shown in the film, to show that even though Martin seemed to be the only one on board with believing in Carter’s innocent for some time once Peters, Chaiton, and Terry had just had one encounter with him and were on board and ready to help him. Peters and Carter even had a special connection. These men were working on this job day and night making it their mission to find all the evidence, hidden proof, silenced witnesses, and more together in order to place Carter’s case back on trial. Peters and the rest of the team made sure to make it known to Carter during one of their visits with him that they are going to do all that it takes and are prepared for the journey. This possibly was included in the movie to show that regardless of how many times Carter gave them a reason took stop all of what they were doing or even blatantly said it that once they saw he was an innocent man they could no longer turn away from the situation at hand and were willing to fight.
When it comes to the actors and the way they take on each character, there of course are some accuracies and inaccuracies that goes along with it. In the movie Denzel Washington, who plays Carter, looks quite similar to him facial-wise taking a step back and examining the full body it is scene that Washington is a taller man compared to Carter. The inaccuracy of the height is not so much important as the face would be so Jewison probably focused on especially getting an actor that could closely resemble Carter’s face so that the audience would be...
