If Life Were Only That Simple!
1 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The premise is interesting, but so far fetched as to defy believability. The plot cooked up by the two men is so jaw droppingly doomed to failure that it never moves into reality. The reporter wants to show how circumstantial evidence is being used to send people to their deaths for capital crimes. It would beg the question as to how frequently this was occurring. From watching these old movies, it would appear that judges routinely sent people to the gas chamber or the electric chair without a thought. Anyway, there's a fly in the ointment and the foolish young reporter gets caught with his hand in the cookie jar. He should be. He should be executed for pure stupidity. Still, things stay interesting until a deus ex machina ending. One redeeming part is when the idiot comes to realize what he has done; he has signed his own death warrant. He has created a near open and shut case. It just left me cold. The writers were in a hurry and lacked the imagination to put the pieces together.
