You don't look so bad, here's another.

Central Park Five - 7/10.
It's a fascinating story, it really is, but it somehow keeps from being as big as it should be. The media frenzy should be bigger, the innocent-in-a-court-of-public-opinion should be bigger, the time lost should be bigger, the lack of limelight when they're found to be innocent should be bigger. In focusing on the guys telling the story – and as empathetic as they come across, especially Kharey Wise (who deserved the spotlight all on his own) – it becomes more emotional, but lacks that giant swath of anger that needs to be directed towards something.
