Storyline

A federal judge is sent to a town to preside in a murder trial. He discovers that the defendant, a poor Mexican, is accused of killing the brother of a powerful landowner, and the townspeople are in no mood for the niceties of a trial. The judge, who has come to believe the accused is innocent of the murder, has to find the real killer before the defendant is railroaded to the gallows. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

...For the audience, to escape from this crap.

What a disappointment for me, a William Witney's gems seeker who has looked for this film since a very long time...

Oh, OK, this rare feature is not worst than other ones, but I would have expected something far better. It's boring, at a scale you can't even imagine. And even if it is an American movie, the - Portuguese or Spanish - dubbing is awful, terrible, as if it was an European western, where the characters's lips moves are not synchronized with the speaking. I watched it in f...pan and scan. So, you can imagine what a torture it was for me. I did not ask for a masterpiece, but I did not deserve that either.

The story has already been told in the plot line above. Routine for Sunday afternoons when you have really nothing else to do. Nothing at all. Except getting a good sleep. I guess it was a taping off from a Latin America channel.
