Many viewer reviews of "Paterno" were extremely negative, but some praised Al Pacino and director Barry Levinson's work on the movie.
Levinson takes shameless liberties about the Sandusky scandal and Joe’s knowledge of it that would certainly be proven libelous if Joe were alive today.
HBO has ensured the resurfacing of a heated debate between Penn State and everyone else. As per usual, we will be given no legitimate voice.
"Paterno" ultimately isn't as damning of Joe or the family as anticipated, but it fails to impart any new perspective on the events it portrays.
A few of "Paterno"'s inaccuracies jumped off the screen to our staff in the fictional version of Happy Valley.
After years of planning and polarizing hype, HBO's Paterno is here. Thanks to modern technology, Twitter serves as an open forum of opinions, especially during controversial premieres of films.
