Taut thriller with a great story
11 January 1999 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

A surprisingly well-executed and dynamic thriller that is much better that any of the recent Grisham trial based films. Quick moving and suspenseful, this movie features a great performance by the devilish Michael McKean. The movie is about a woman who's brother is murdered and his murderer is let free. Then the victim's sister kidnaps the attorney who got the murderer off and eventually goes on trial for her freedom. The story twists and turns and the directing by Tommy Lee Wallace is top-notch. The musical score by Brian Tyler is especially terrific. The cinematography (didn't catch who did it) is also fantastic. I highly recommend this film if you get the chance to see it.
