I was about to purchase on Amazon Prime, I think it's currently $7.99, but thought it would be smarter to first come here and see what others opinions on it were.

i thought the movie was pretty good. the first half focuses on Sue & everything that happened on the 20th from her perspective. the second half focuses on mental health resources.

Sounds promising, thank you! I mean, let's be real. I probably would have caved and just bought it anyway in a few hours, but i kind of hoped for some "Nah, it was horrible and they got too much wrong" Laughing
So I'm happy to see a positive response!

Trust me, it’s contains no information you haven’t heard before if you already have a strong interest in Columbine. I would certainly not buy it, i was able to stream it a while back and i didn’t really care for it.

If i was able to find it for free, i certainly would. As it stands, i haven't had a quiet chunk of time away from my kid's to watch it so i haven't purchased it yet. Honestly, like a lot of us here, i doubt much is being released with info i haven't heard or read here, but it still interests me to see things presented differently study

The version for sale has a little bit more to it than the one that was floating around for free last year. Just sayin'.

Is it a good chunk of additional footage? I think I'm just going to bite the bullet (no pun intended) and purchase it. I'm not sure if I can download off Google drive to watch offline and I want to show it to some family who will be off the internet grid with me soon.

I'm not sure exactly how much longer but it feels like a good 10-15 minutes longer.

Thank you! I did wind up purchasing it last night, I got about halfway through before one of my kids woke up and I needed to turn it off. I think it's quite good so far. The reenactment parts really add something to Sue's dialogue. I've been in the mindset that "she's still in denial", but hearing her say about the victims "they didn't just die, they were killed. By Dylan" was very eye opening. I think a lot of the Sue haters would do well to watch this. Of course that's only my opinion

I think the finalized version is more well-rounded in terms of discussing brain health awareness in the second half of the movie.  I remember the free version didn't quite convey exploring how Sue's story applies systemically to other youth and the educational system. I was more satisfied watching the paid finished version.  No regrets for the purchase. lol
