Well above average TV movie ..................
6 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Big city lawyer, Jennifer O'Neill, returns to small hometown for her father's funeral. Good friend and judge, Richard Farnsworth, convinces her to stay on as a public defender. Complications ensue when the judge is murdered, and O'Neill is appointed the suspect's defender. Meanwhile, corrupt deputy sheriff, Michael Parks, is stirring up vigilante locals for their own brand of justice. The acting by O'Neill, Parks, and especially Farnsworth elevates "Chase" to well above average for a TV movie. Eventually this turns into a hunted in the woods affair, with some spectacular scenery. Perhaps a bit rushed to conclusion, but nevertheless a winner. - MERK
