26 April 2004 | by (Fairbanks, U.S. Territory of Alaska) – See all my reviews

Interesting movie and sad at the same time. It's a shame there are idiots in the world who will harass others just for fun. Portrayed here is another example of how horrible the United States is (a country I love for all that is great about it.) This movie also brings to light the foolishness of people who don't follow through with justice. Religion should not play a part in anyone saying no to holding whoever is guilty accountable. Here that was almost the case but in the end justice was served... sort of. Prosecutor Ken Olin in court versus the big shot criminal attorney seemed to be leading up to a grand court case to prove guilt. What happened was kind of a letdown that really brought the movie down for me - there was a change of plea in court and no trial. Ugh. Just like that the movie ended without full resolution, without us the audience seeing justice carried out. Oh well. All in all this wasn't too bad. Ken Olin, I think, brings something to the small screen that many other small screen actors just can't. He does a really good job in most of the roles he plays and he does a good job here, too. It was kinda neat seeing a young Brad Pitt in one of his first movie roles, though his part was rather small. This gets a grade of: C
