Aroview: Denzel Washington blows up a storm as Rubin 'Hurricane' Carter, a championship boxer unjustly imprisoned in the 1970s for a murder he did not commit. (He also inspired the Bob Dylan song.)

Charting a decades-long prison ordeal, this absorbing saga of endurance aroused some controversy over its depiction of 'the facts', but the better part of the tale remains.
