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 »

User Reviews

 
A competent and enjoyable courtroom drama but nothing more
13 January 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is an efficient movie with some neat twists and turns in the solving of a crime. It is largely inoffensive because it is constructed to the well worn formula of finger pointing to a murderer and then seeing just how many things can change your mind before the credits roll.

The acting is reasonable but not sensational with the victim, Barbara (Marcia Gay Harden), being the best at everything in the back story played out throughout the film. Nothing sticks out as faulty, but it is not especially memorable either.

If you like courtrooms and enjoy trying to work crimes out then it is worth a rental.
