Well crafted Courtroom / Legal Thriller...
18 March 2014 | by (Sunny Southern California, USA) – See all my reviews

Heh... Am I the ONLY one who saw this...? : )

Seriously though, this was a very good film; nothing legendary by any means, but very well done, with excellent acting, and a good, involving story. There is nothing overtly stylish or particularly outstanding that would set this apart as way above other good Legal Thrillers, but it is competently done in every way and directed very well.

Just ONE tiny little thing that I couldn't help but notice because I happen to be an EXTREMELY avid fan of this other film, but I kind of smiled because there was just ONE brief scene shown towards the latter part of the film that was lifted almost LINE FOR LINE from the TRAGICALLY underrated film 'FROM THE HIP' (1987) starring a most excellent and delightful Judd Nelson in one of his best roles ever, not to mention an absolutely CHILLING performance by John Hurt. Heh, I'm sitting here thinking, 'These sly B@stards... I wonder if anyone will actually know where this is from...?'

So, as long as you don't mind reading subtitles and you DO like good Courtroom Drama and films with interesting Police investigations, then you should really enjoy this movie.
