Summary

It’s hard-hitting, emotional and at times distressing to watch. It’s a show that’ll stick in your mind long after the credits roll.

The review of the Netflix true crime series Reasonable Doubt: A Tale of Two Kidnappings does not contain any spoilers.

Based on events from Mexico in 2015, Reasonable Doubt: A Tale of Two Kidnappings looks into the story of four men who are serving 50 years of prison time for kidnapping despite there being no actual evidence linking them to the crime. Those involved in the making of the true-crime limited series hope that it help will expose the corruption that surrounds the Mexican justice system. It’s entertaining to watch, and although it’ll make you angry, the show is short. This is because the true-crime series has four episodes. As is usually the standard, each episode is around 45 minutes in length.

Being arrested and then imprisoned for a crime that you didn’t commit must be everyone’s own version of hell. It’s hard to fully understand the horror that the four men must go through, and hopefully, is something that none of us will ever have to experience. Reasonable Doubt: A Tale of Two Kidnappings does a good job of conveying that horror. That, therefore, means that it is not the easiest of shows to watch. For some, this may make the limited series more enjoyable. But for others, it may be too much to sit through. What I will say is the situations get worse each episode. 

The series is infuriating to watch, purely just because it’s based on real people who have been screwed over, massively. The interviews featured in the four episodes are emotional, and therefore it’s clear to see the effects that this situation has left on those involved. Reasonable Doubt: A Tale of Two Kidnappings is a show that will get your blood boiling. All that emotion comes to a head in the final episode, where the outcome of the final hearing gets revealed.

After watching Reasonable Doubt: A Tale of Two Kidnappings, it’ll make you consider twice before jetting off to holiday in Mexico.
