It's a so so kind of film NOT AWFUL AND A LONG WAY FROM GREAT.
15 October 2014 | by (CHICAGO) – See all my reviews

You want me to defend him, set him free and deliver him to you." Jaxon Stone (Woodward Jr.) is one of the best lawyers in town. When two clients hire him he begins his investigations to find a way to free them. When it turns out that one of the clients has ulterior motives Jaxon is in a difficult spot. Either save the defendant and he dies, or prove he's guilty and Jaxon dies. So judging by the cast alone I was expecting this to be garbage. Nothing against the stars of the movie but most of the movies they have been in have been pretty low budget and slow. That said I will do this review in two parts. First of all I have to say that this is one of the most technically bad movies I have ever seen. The camera goes in and out of focus, the zooms are so close that you can't see the actor's whole face, and the boom mic never seems to be in the right place. Some of the dialog is echoed and some is too loud. All that said though the actual plot and movie was much better than I was expecting. The biggest problem with movies like this have been that they are so slow moving. This movie is only an hour and 15 minutes long so it really moves along quickly. The idea is really interesting and that is what really got me and I ended up staying interested the entire time. I am not saying that this is an amazing movie or something to run out and see but this is a million times better than I was expecting. Overall, one of the biggest surprises I have seen in a while. Far surpassed my expectations. I surprisingly give this a B-.
