The story of Rubin "Hurricane" Carter, a boxer wrongly imprisoned for murder, and the people who aided in his fight to prove his innocence.
Denzel Washington lost sixty pounds to play the lead role.
Ladies and gentlemen, this fine young fighter will be right here in Pittsburg on the boxing cog, this Monday night.
Credits at the end of movie state that Rubin Carter is the only boxer to have received an honorary championship title belt from the World Boxing Council in 1993. This is incorrect as the boxer Joey Giardello also received an honorary championship belt at the same banquet in Las Vegas.
