I liked this film, this is not a great movie but it's a good one, and the most important thing was that it didn't bore me for a moment.
The performances are good, the plot is interesting and clever. What I didn't like about it was that the shots of the film looked like a movie made for TV.
The plot is about how Sean Casey ,an assistant district attorney working for just six months, improves very fast in his way up at his job but he is going to discover many dirty things about policemen and politics and is at this point where he will have to make difficult decisions that will put in text his principles.
If you like intelligent police or court movies, this one is for you.
