Court-based intense drama, turning into a thriller
25 July 2006 | by (London) – See all my reviews

I wasn't impressed with the opening; however, making the convicted murderer of his own family free again was an interesting challenge to watch. The attorney, who also had a few personal problems, is played by Bo Derek, I think she played reasonably well, and so did "the murderer".

It was a merely amusing film up to the point where new evidence comes to light, which changes the situation completely and turns this film into a thriller. I wasn't expecting this plot turn at all and was shivering till the end of the film. Watching this 2 hour film paid off

  • these last 30 minutes was a great watch (not that the beginning was
utterly boring).

I'd watch the film again, looking for clues hinting at that turning plot in the film. 7 out of 10 rating.
