Trivia

Bill Pullman takes over the role of Rusty Sabich from Harrison Ford. Bill had spoofed Harrison's Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977) character of Han Solo in Spaceballs (1987), and Alfred Molina had worked with Harrison in Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981). See more »

Goofs

Rusty Sabich is a head appellate judge, ruling on an appeal by a convicted murderer that he prosecuted. In real life, he should have recused (removed) himself from the case or the convicts appellate lawyers should have filed to have him removed from hearing the appeal. Either way he should not have been presiding over this case as he was personally involved. See more »

Not Proved
1 December 2011 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This made-for-TV version of the Scott Turow novel is a competently made but not particularly inspiring translation to the small screen. With Bill Pullman and Alfred Molina in two of the leading roles, the acting is fine, but for some reason there seem to be a lot of English-as-a-second-language characters. Molina and the woman who portrays the judge play them with accents.

One of the issues of courtroom dramas on screen is that they take place in a small space and there isn't much real movement going on. Typically, this is covered by an active camera, and that happens here, with short editing cuts and a camera that moves. Injudiciously applied, it becomes frantic, even hysterical, and that happens occasionally here.

Even so, the central story is a solid one. If you have any taste for this genre, it's a couple of hours well spent.
