Storyline

Based on a true story. A female bible student corresponds with a couple that is sent to prison after a goopy body is found in their apartment in a trunk filled with acid. After visiting the Wife, then the husband, she (Cecilia Yip) falls for him (Francis Ng) and begins to think that he is innocent. So she arranges for a defense team (with help from a catholic Church) to get him acquitted of the charges. Meanwhile a hard working detective (Anthony Wong) tries to convince the woman that he's guilty as hell. But he arranges to have a prison divorce and wedding behind bars. When she finds out the awful truth, how will she handle it? Written by Joseph P. Ulibas <mculibas@cwnet.com>

Category III Cinema: Legal Innocence.
24 August 2005 | by (Sacramento, CA) – See all my reviews

Legal Innocence (1993) was another "based upon a true story" criminal case. The story was popular enough to inspire two films. This is the better of the two and it stars Anthony Wong, Cecilia Yip, Lawrence Ng and Paul (Chiang) Chu.

An attractive religious student Shirley Cheng (Cecilia Yip) is intrigued with the case that involves a young couple and their involvement in the disappearance of a female co-ed. She decides to interview both people that were arrested for the girl's disappearance, Patrick Wong (Francis Ng) is very sympathetic and begs for the woman's help in a new trial. The female half is completely mad. She turns her attentions in helping the man get released. Lau is a cop who worked on the case (Anthony Wong) is interested in knowing why she wants him released. He feels that he's just as guilty (if not more so) than his companion. Soon , the convict and the lady become lovers and she's determined more than ever to get a new trial for her soon to be husband.

Will the justice system grant Mr. Ng a new trial? How certain is Inspector Lau that the couple is indeed guilty of their crime? What happened to the girl? Will we ever truly know what happened that fateful night? To find out then you'll need to track down a copy of this sadly neglected film.

Highly recommended.
