Horribly predictable legal drama
25 January 2003 | by (Georgia) – See all my reviews

Although there is character development, it's unlikely that you will care about any of these people. Decent, yet predictable plot.

Pros: -Slightly above average plot -The legal jargon is interesting

Cons: -Acting is sub-par -Characters are lame (you won't care about them) -Ending is very, very weak

Surprisingly, though, I did watch the entire thing. therefore: 5/10
