A Plodding Process
15 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Dry account of the procedural path from crime to arrest to trial. This made for HBO movie is OK if not totally engaging.

The major fault does not lie in the execution of the realistic portrayal but in the realistic problem of the overloaded court system. It is not overstated or made to be entertaining and so we have a picture as plodding as the procedure.

The ending is bit of a letdown, however, as the stats show before the credits roll, ultimately right on realistic. It is that realism that handcuff this from being any more than a chronological account of an inherently involved process that leaves little to the imagination and a lot to the non-exciting plea bargain processes.

A good primer for pre law students but at best an easy homework assignment for the rest of us.
