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.

I don't normally watch the news. But one day Amanda Knox story was on the news and I was very interested. Then I hear about the Lifetime movie that was about Amanda Knox. I couldn't wait in tell I received the movie. I am happy to add this movie to my collection of DvD's.

This was an ok movie, withesaying that and the issues still being current and sensitive I really don't want to say much. I don't know if everything that was shown if it was actually how it happen or it lifetime fabricated other parts. After watching I still have some questions here and there about what took place. I will say this I do travel but not alot but when I travel to another country I have to be very aware because you just never know.

The whole thing is so sad and in the end it's the victim that nobody remembers just this big case.

This is an originally made for TV movie in 2011, so if you know that going in I don't think you'll have the expectations that some other reviewers seem to have of this. It is based on a true story, and isn't a documentary, as you'd expect it embellishes some things and leaves other less entertaining stuff out. It follows the TV movie formula of going for around an hour and a half, cutting the story short and wrapping everything up with a number of text boxes on the screen. And spending its casting budget on unknown outside of other TV movie actors with the exception of a regogniseable face from a popular former TV show's that is no longer on air. In this case that show was Heroes' (which went off air a year earlier with it's actress Hayden Panettiere leaving that show even earlier than that). Hayden who a year later would go onto to star in Nashville and become a much more A list actress, plays Amanda Knox in this one. The trio of the accused in real life that got the most media attention since she was an attractive young American. Although Panettiere is certainly smoking hot, she doesn't look a great deal like the real Amanda Knox. But she portrays a young woman in the situation of being accused of the murder of her roommate in a foreign country that doesn't investigate and prosecute crimes the same way it is done in America (and well most first world countries). You certainly through Hayden felt what the real Amanda would have gone through.

Although it might annoy some people who know anyone actually involved in the real life situation or who knows the victim or accussed or their families, this film deliberately stays vague on portraying if Amanda actually was involved in her roommate's death or not.

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.

The irresponsible inaccuracies in this production are bad enough, but the editing of the documentary that followed the original airing was deplorable.

The original documentary included forensic evidence and absence of evidence commentary which clearly showed that Amanda and Raffaele could not have been involved in the crime, as the appeals court eventually ruled.

But I guess that would have damaged the titillation factor that Lifetime was gunning for. It's sad that human lives are held hostage to our insatiable demand for entertainment. Things haven't changed since the Roman Holidays at the Coliseum.

It was really fun to watch this for the many views of Perugia and of the cottage tho it could have been much better if their intent was honorable - or even better (seeking TRUTH, not just quick cash $$$)

EVERYONE was against the making of this film before the trial finished, including the defense of Knox, Sollecito and even the defense of Meredith.

I woulld have loved to hear how Hayden was advised to portray AK cuz she sure does make her look GUILTY tho the evidence says NO.

Amanda and Raffaele were not 'surprised' or 'caught' by the police - that's why they were standing outside the cottage waiting!

The clock on the wall was 12 minutes SLOW, not fast as Mignini claimed.

In the film MK's room is twice the size that it really was. Too small for 4 people!

She had no dresser.

Meredith was not stripped to her bra and panties. She was stabbed before she even took her coat off!

She was sexually assaulted after she was mortally wounded, as she lay dead or dying.

Mignini claims she didn't retract her srtatement but court testimony proves that's not true!

AK knew the details of the murder because Filimina's friends Paola and Luca looked into the room and told Raffaele and Amanda what they saw. Again, as they testified in court!

They never had a picnic - they met in frigid October.

They didn't run away laughing and gigglinng from the candlelit vigil.

AK and RS were not there. They were called back into the station that night.

NONE of MK's friends or the other roommates were at the vigil either.

NO ONE yet knew who the murderer was as the lab tests were not back and Rudy had not yet been found!

TERRIBLE FILM! SHAME on LifeTime for shwoing it in Italy now!!!

$$$$$$ at the expense of EVERYONE exceot the MURDERER, RUDY GUEDE!!!
