Score higher for the actors
8 October 1999 | by gallileoSee all my reviews

I know this movie as American Justice. I searched and now finally own it and would be hard pressed to ever get rid of it. For me the acting is good for the Wilford Brimley, Gerald McRaney and Jameson Parker, the other lead character left me cold. The best part for me was seeing the stars of tv's Simon & Simon working together in totally different roles. Just goes to show the chemistry goes beyond the series. Worth watching at least once. Good viewing
