Portrayed the true story of the aftermath for Richard Jewell very well. An emotional eye-opening film, I couldn't get enough. Was one of those movies you never wanted to end.

Good true story. A little drawn out and boring at times. Could have shortened it a bit, but you see the hell this poor guy and his mom went through.

A good guy that was just trying to do his job .. Definitely puts light on how crooked and corrupt the media really is, and how they can completely RUIN a persons life with false accusations.

In an era when conservatives didn’t trust Obama, and now liberals don’t trust Trump, this great movie reminds us we are all expendable to an overreaching government.

I remember the Atlanta bombing but not Richard Jewell’s story. I am. glad this was told. And the story is relevant as it was in1996. Clint Eastwood does a great job with excellent performances. If you are interested in a historic event watch this movie.

The movie overall wasn’t bad. I know it got a lot of backlash because people felt Clint Eastwood made the parties originally involved look bad, but I really feel it was a good depiction of what took place. It shed a light on different things such as greed, desperation and how a person can fall victim because of their own personal wants.

Outstanding movie that sheds light on a such a tragic moment in US history. I lived during this event and the government truly tried to railroad this guy. He was on the news 24/7 and the media and FBI had already determined he was guilty long before he ever got a trial. Richard Jewell could have been put to death for something he didn’t do. Was he an odd guy? Sure. But he was a hero that day. RIP Richard...

I’m sorry but no adult male with such an enabling mother is as innocent as this movie tried to portray him. He had been arrested for frightening and way over-the-line behaviors in the past. He was creepy! And there were VERY good reasons he was being investigated. This movie attempts to tug at heartstrings that it has no business plucking.

This movie is proof of how many people have been unjustly had their lives ruined by people and the media by one or more people jumping to conclusions. This was a great movie that shows just one of those type of stories with heart and feeling, it is a great movie and a story everyone should see.

it was good but not great. acting was superb. I felt it lacked a big powerful feel good ending. However seeing it's a true story, we all know how it ends anyways. 3 1/2 stars out of 5.

More diverting is the increasingly desperate forensics the FBI resorts to in order to build a case against Jewell, though it’s not always clear which tactics are simply thorough, now outdated, or flagrantly illegal. But Richard Jewell has so little to say about its time period or how the culture has shifted that it ends up exposing the relative quaintness of its concerns.

It’s Hauser who carries the film in a rare and unlikely role, that of a presumed loser in life (the man did die just a few years later, at 44) who suffered very unwanted attention — but who, when he needed to, found a way to rise to the occasion.

Thankfully, Eastwood’s sure grasp of this inherently compelling story mostly overcomes his sentimental propensities.
