Quotes

Danielle Kline: ...What did you do, Gwen? Take Merle Hammond on a joyride, during which he was subjected to rather annoying conditions? Most people put up with more than that just going to work. You're not alone in the commission of this felony; what drove you to this crime is a damaged legal system greatly in need of repair.
Gwen Saticoy: No offense, but you're part of that system; to exonerate me requires that you abuse it, the same way Merle Hammond did.
Danielle Kline: Believe it or not, I *do* think I can effectively defend my clients...

Vigilante Garbage
21 July 2002 | by See all my reviews

A woman takes a defense attorney hostage, subjects him to a nice game of Russian Roulette and other threats and humiliations--then relies on the tricks of another attorney to get her off the hook for it.

Her jaw-dropping hypocrisy could have been the basis for a nice melodrama, but no, this is pure "Lifetime"-style "man-baaaad woman-gooood" constipation, so she is presented at worst as "pushed over the edge by injustice"--and at best as America's Greatest Hero.

The judge at her trial and her attorney are ridiculously unprofessional--but they're women, so it's "okay." Her victim--and his fellow lawyers? Man baaaaaaaad.

Put "Final Justice" to this test: pretend you're the defense attorney. Because you do your job, someone takes YOU hostage, holds you at gunpoint, tortures you with death threats, then walks away free--fully capable of doing it all over again.

Is she your hero now?
