Clyde is arraigned in front of the same Court of Common Pleas judge who sentenced Darby. Cylde's initial arraignment and bail hearing would not take place in the Court of Common Pleas. In Pennsylvania, it would actually take place in front of a local District Justice (magistrate), who would then schedule a preliminary hearing to determine if enough evidence existed to hold the case for trial in the Court of Common Pleas. Furthermore, this would all have taken place before he was ever committed to county jail. See more »
This reminds me of the start of a great relationship, starts out wonderful, continues to grow, and then out of nowhere, BAM, it ends and you are left wondering what just happened.
As so many other reviewers have stated, it starts out with great suspense, originality, and creativity, and somewhere in the last 20 minutes, you are left wondering, did it really just end that way? Ouch! I found myself incredibly disappointed.
We all love Jaime Foxx's funny side, but really wanted to see something else happen to him in this film. I get the idea of the end, that he learned his lesson so to speak, but it was still really weak for what it could have been.
However, I'll still give it an 8 as it kept me quite intrigued throughout...so hard to find these days in a quality film.
