Excellent movie!
17 November 2000 | by (San Diego, California) – See all my reviews

This movie, whether you watch the 4 hour version or the shorter 2 hour one, is really well done. Judd Nelson and Ron Silver give terrific performances and the writing is very sharp. The action is well done and the courtroom scenes are riveting. A solid piece of work and definitely worth seeing.
