Editorial Reviews

Hayden Panettiere (Heroes) and Marcia Gay Harden (Academy Award winner for Pollock) star in the Lifetime Original Movie AMANDA KNOX: MURDER ON TRIAL IN ITALY based on the international headline-grabbing story of the now infamous American exchange student accused by Italian authorities of brutally killing her roommate. AMANDA KNOX: MURDER ON TRIAL IN ITALY poses the question of whether Knox (Panettiere), the Seattle honors student accused of murdering her college roommate Meredith Kercher (Amanda Fernando Stevens) in 2007 with her boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito (Paolo Romio) and acquaintance Rudy Guede (Djirbi Kebe), actually committed the crime or was herself a victim.

BONUS FEATURES: Beyond the Headlines: The Amanda Knox Story Documentary

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting. March 20, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
It was good enough to keep me from being bored. It had good actors not a bunch of unknown ones. I would say that it is worth watching.

2.0 out of 5 stars just ok November 9, 2011

Doesn't really give facts. There is a lot of assumption here. The acting is not great, and it seems like they are glamorizing the sad murder.

1.0 out of 5 stars Hold off a minute March 30, 2011
Format:DVD
Regardless of anything, this book is based off another book called, "Angel Face, the true story of student killer Amanda Knox.
That should say everything...

1.0 out of 5 stars This movie is exploitative trash February 3, 2014
Format:DVD
Like most "true life" crime fiction, this movie is garbage. It lacks reality, depth and any attempt at investigative exposition. Instead, it shrugs off its responsibilities in favor of melodrama and emotional pandering. Slap on a few big name stars for the credits and call it a day. This is the worst of Hollywood. Made even worse by the fact that it has the ability to affect a story that is still very much in progress. Everyone who made or was involved with it should be ashamed.

Anyone familiar with the realm of Lifetime made-for-TV movies can readily identify their "ripped from the headlines" approach toward notorious legal cases. This tried and true formula has been evidenced in countless Lifetime films through the years and I'm quite sure that there will be little deviation from established success. At times, though, one would have to consider--when is it too soon? With the 2011 premiere of "Amanda Knox: Murder On Trial In Italy," the question becomes all the more relevant. The movie aired in February, just two months after an appeal was granted for the real life Knox and in the same month her parents were indicted by Italian police for abuse claims they were making publicly. In reality, this particular incident is still very much under scrutiny and alive in the legal system. So to have it tried as a fictionalized TV movie seems somehow suspect. While the film doesn't make an outright proclamation of actual events, it certainly seems to endorse the position that Knox is guilty. And whether or not she is--it seems that there is no need to unnecessarily muddy the waters with a "based on" accounting that amounts to a great deal of fiction for dramatic purposes.

Off my soapbox, I will now look at "Amanda Knox: Murder On Trial In Italy" as a purely fabricated account for entertainment purposes. Hayden Panettiere portrays Knox, an American student studying in Italy who is accused of participating in the sexual assault and murder of her British roommate. Her actions, along with her boyfriend, are immediately drawn into question when the body is discovered at the beginning of the film. With her story not ringing true, Knox is subjected to an intense police investigation in which her story varies dramatically along the way.

3.0 out of 5 stars Amanda Knox: April 6, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I wanted to watch this to get an idea exactly what was going on. Film seemed to have slant that she is guilty and portrayed such. If I were her I wouldn't go back to Italy. Never!

5.0 out of 5 stars Surpisingly good.... April 4, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I was a bit skeptical before watching this movie as I had assumed it would be a "Lifetime" channel style over-dramatization and light on facts. It actually turned out to be a pretty good, fair, balanced summary of the case, while still being entertaining in a mystery sort of way, and put together all of the diverse bits and pieces one could get from the news coverage into a coherent whole.
