Should come with warning
11 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie should come with a label warning the viewer that the only people who will enjoy it will also enjoy sitting through a two hour church service with no singing and no suspense, while they listen to their pastor summarize his previous 20 sermons.

What has happened to Matthew Modine? This is not the same actor I saw in Full Metal Jacket or Vision Quest.

There should also be a warning that nothing in the movie will have anything in common with a real trial. I could have done a better closing in my sleep.

I'm embarrassed I watched it. I could have spent the evening cutting my wrists and letting the blood out one drop every 15 minutes. It would have been much more interesting. The movie is as dull as my review.
