Format: DVD
As a teenager, I watched (on VHS!) the documentaries 'Paradise Lost: The Child Murders at Robin Hood Hills' & 'Revelations: Paradise Lost 2'. Those documentaries have stayed with me and I casually followed the updates on the story (which I won't go into here or it would be considered spoilers for those unfamiliar with the case). However, I will say that the documentaries are both terribly sad and fascinating, causing you to question the media, justice system and your own judgement. I can entirely understand why so many people, celebrities et al. got involved with raising awareness of the case.

When I saw that this film had been made, I was excited to see it. Unfortunately, it feels like half a story. My biggest complaint is that the film does not accurately portray just how suspicious some of the boy's family members were, which was a huge factor in the documentaries. Devil's Knot focuses almost solely on one family, barely touching on some of the crucial information regarding the others (and missing out a whole host of small but significant details).

I do appreciate that the story had to be condensed but this is a serious subject and affected everyone concerned immensely. As such, I do not feel that this film did the story justice. The way that it is wrapped up at the end especially was disappointing.

It is difficult to guess how I would feel having watched this without prior knowledge of the story, maybe I would have enjoyed it more.

I fully recommend anyone who has seen this to watch the documentaries. They are a tough watch at times (I teared up at the beginning of the film, recalling the actual footage of the crime scene) but very thought provoking.

Format: DVD
This is a passable but uninspired thriller based on an extremely grim true story.
During the course of May 1993, three trailer park teenage boys living in West Arkansas, Memphis, were accused of the savage murders of three 8 year old boys. The alleged killers were into heavy metal music and the occult.
The sudden disappearance of the young boys led to a desperate hunt for them in the local woods. Both the local enforcement agencies and the general public took part in the search, culminating in the discovery of three bound and mutilated bodies in a secluded lagoon...
Reece Witherspoon plays Pam Hobbs, the devastated mother of one of the ill-fated boys, Stevie. Colin Firth plays Ron Lax, a private investigator who chooses to gather evidence on a pro bono basis in order to assist with the defence of the accused teenagers, Damien, Jason and Jessie. Ron's motivation is not a financial one, he simply wants to help three young men to escape the death penalty.
Damien in particular was obsessed with satanism including animal sacrifices, and he was very much the ring-leader of the boys, an adolescent guru of the dark arts, and charismatic in a decidedly sinister fashion, very much in the mould of Charles Manson. Jessie meanwhile had the mental age of an 8 year old and followed Damien like a sheep...
This film has the look and feel of a made for TV movie, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. The acting is very good but the pace of the film is sluggish. Reece Witherspoon is a fine actress but she's somewhat underused in this flick, and the film drags whenever she's off screen. Colin Firth's performance is understated and his American accent is a bit hit and miss.

I thought this was a noble effort at bringing this true life tale to the screen. It's far from perfect and doesn't tell the full story to be honest but works as an interesting companion piece to the admittedly better documentaries that have covered it.

The film tells the tale of the murder of three young boys in West Memphis in 1993 and the subsequent trials of the three suspects. It was a long story that unfolded over a long period of time but the film narrows its focus to the early stages and more specifically to one of the boys mothers (Reese Witherspoon) and a private investigator (Colin Firth). These two carry the bulk of the acting duties but there's a fine cast on show throughout the whole thing, even in the minor roles.

The case rattles past at a fair old pace, a blur of facts and non facts being thrown at the screen. It's a solid piece of work but as polished as it is and as interesting as the story at its heart is - it still raises more questions than it answers. A more thorough examination of events can be found in the Paradise Lost trilogy of documentaries by Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky and the excellent West of Memphis doc from Amy J Berg.

I was three years old when is awful event took place in America in fact I never knew anything about this story until this film came out. It tells the story of three young boys going into the woods together and never coming home they are found dead and the murders are wrongly blamed on teen cult group. Reese Witherspoon is on form here as one of grieving mothers for her son I really liked I how they told the story between the boy and his mother before his murder. True blood's Stephen Moyer has a small part to play to the court room, Colin Firth is trying to get the bottom of who really murdered the little boys I think his southern accent is a little off at times but never the less performs well. I think anyone who doesn't know to much about this story or saw any documentaries on this will be engrossed in this sad story as much as I was.
