Very ordinary made-for-tv courtroom drama
25 September 2001 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

"The Killing Yard" tells of an elder and ailing defense attorney (Alda) who wages a crusade for and bonds with an Attica inmate wrongfully accused of a double homicide. The film is a typical made in Canada for Showtime journeyman product with the biggest flaw being that we, the audience, can only ask ourselves why we should care. Character development is forsaken for courtroom drama, B-movie queen McGowan contributes little, and our "hero", the convict (Chestnut), plays a hard-to-feel-sorry-for felon. Will work best with those into trial flicks.
