Pure Evil
10 February 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Craig Walker playing a killer who should have gotten the needle escapes and kills two correction officers in the process. As he massacred six people in the original crime that sent him up,the city goes on high alert as Jesse Martin and Milena Govich go on the hunt. Along with just about the rest of the NYPD.

A lot of people can never wrap their minds around the concept of pure evil. Walker is the reason we have a death penalty statute, a stone cold killer without remorse or regret or even a qualm about taking a life. Ted Bundy, Charles Manson, Walker's character is in their mold.

Before taking him down Walker kills several school children in a school he took refuge in. Sam Waterston seeks to apply capital punishment and get it from legislative limbo from where it is. But before that can happen, Jeremy Davidson the father of one of the murdered children kills him on the courthouse steps.

As his lawyer Catherine Dent is also a candidate for State Senate and she offers her assistance pro bono. But this trial and the media attention it's getting is worth more than all the advertising she can buy on the air. She's working her own agenda as both Waterston and Alana DeLa Garza plainly see.

All I can say about this one is beware of certain pro bono lawyers.
