O. J & Co.
23 October 2015 | by kapelusznik18See all my reviews

Right from the days news headlines the "O.J Simpson Story" was made even before O.J Simpson, Bobby Hosea, went on trial for the double murder of his estranged wife Nicole, Jessica Tuck, and her friend Ron Goldman, Paul Witter. This is what you call jumping the gun on the filmmakers part in showing O.J as being guilty before a jury, that found O.J innocent, even had a chance to judge and convict him for his accused crimes. In fact the made for TV movie could well have had O.J's conviction, if it happened , thrown out of court on a technicality in its influencing the jury!

O.J is shown in the movie to be a Doctor Jeakle and Mister Hyde type character here being both sweet as well as brutal towards Nichole who put up with him and his violent mood swings for years. Nichole's brutal murder , while her and O.J's two young children were sleeping in the house, together with Goldman's had O.J later arrested and charged with the crime. Protesting his innocence O.J when he was told he'd be arrested flipped out and with his friend A.J Cowlings, David Robertson, went on his infamous run to daylight ride, on O'J's white Bronco, to really nowhere. That mad dash on the L.A Freeway preempted an entire evening of Friday night prime time T.V programs that was far more exciting then anything that they could offer the viewers.

In the end O.J both suicidal as well as a broken man has to face the music in what he did or didn't do as the movie ends and were given the impression he'll be convicted for the crimes he's accused, a double murder as well as moving violation, of committing. The public had to wait some ten months, until October 1995, to find out the verdict which was far more shocking and mind boggling then anything the movie "The O.J Simpson Story" could have dreamed up!

P.S O.J's problems didn't stop with his exoneration of his crime by a jury of his peers. Incredibly O.J later got himself again into hot water by him and his friends raiding a Las Vegas hotel that was selling O.J sports paraphernalia-and not giving O.J a cut of the profits-and ended up behind bars with a 30 year sentence which O.J, now suffering for a serious case of diabetes, may never live to serve out. If in fact O.J was Innocent of the crime of murdering his wife and Ron Goldman like his jury ruled he was he was later proved guilty in his Las Vegas hotel caper in him just by not letting things stay where they were by him trying to get his name in the papers by acting like the jerk that he turned out to be. That together with a series of his string of other strange and bizarre antics that put him behind bars or in the cooler where he now find himself today.
