Storyline

A street gang raids David Reardon's wife and leaves her half-dead. When the gang is brought to court, she still lies down in coma, so judge Eden has to let them go on lack of evidence. Reardon believes it was Eden's fault and takes revenge: he kidnaps Eden's wife and threatens to kill her if he doesn't find proof against the punks in 7 hours. In panic, Eden starts erring around in the night to find a witness. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

Has A Lot To Say, But Not Well Put Together
7 December 2001 | by (Chicago, USA) – See all my reviews

Another film that attempts to make a comment on how the legal system allows criminals to use loopholes to slip out of being penalized, while victims suffer. However, the character Ron Leibman plays comes off as a lunatic instead of the anguished husband of a murdered victim as the story wears on. The premise of the film seems very far fetched as well, especially in the scenes where Beau Bridges is facing down gang toughs. There is no chemistry between Bridges and Moore (she plays his wife), either. Could have been a much better film for the ideas it was trying to get across.
