Helena Bonham Carter,
After the daughter of a prominent businessman is brutally murdered, high profile defense attorney Kitt Devereux takes the case of the accused murderer, rising rapper Bobby Medina. With a history of drugs and violence, Medina is a likely suspect, but Devereux suspects there's more to the case as she locks horns with her ex-husband, D.A. Jack Campioni, and a wealthy woman whose son is a presidential candidate. Dealing with her own tainted past and the unreliable Medina, Devereux struggles to prove her client's innocence even to herself. Written by
This movie had the ingredients for making it a good law thriller. The writers did manage to create a suspenseful atmosphere despite the laughable performance by Griffith (whose dialogue was even more boring than usual) and Berenger (who gives a no-hitter acting). But then, as it usually happens in bad thriller, after the bad guys have apparently won and thoroughly outsmarted the defense attorney, she get a colossal break of luck and wins the case. That is so typical of writers who run out of ideas that it is pathetic. And such a blunder of an ending puts a damper in the whole film, making it very very disappointing.
