Devil’s Knot (2013)


 devils knot“When I see something like this happen, when I see a town lose three of its children, and they sacrifice three more for revenge, then I do take it personally.” – Ron Lax

Number of Times Seen – 1 (24 Jun 2014)

Brief Synopsis – Based on a true story. After 3 young boys mysteriously disappear from a small mid-western town, a local investigator tries to find out if the teenagers accused of the crime are innocent or guilty.

My Take on it – This is another movie that I just happened to come across having never heard about beforehand.

The story is based on a true event from twenty years ago.

I was shocked by many of the things shown here and it’s quite amazing that this apparently really happened.

When it’s all over and done the viewer is left with lots of questions to ponder for days to come.

I’m a big fan of true crime movies and this was done extremely well even though it isn’t perfect, but it’s still a pretty satisfying story.

Bottom Line – Very interesting and captivating story ‘ripped’ from true headlines. Leaves the viewer with many questions to ponder. Recommended!

Rating – Globe Worthy

  2. Never even heard of this one! Must not have advertised itself very well, huh? I do like Colin Firth, though, so maybe I’ll give it a shot. This makes me think of Prisoners…is it anything like that? Good review, Rob!
