Jimmie Rainwood was minding his own business when two corrupt police officers (getting an address wrong) burst into his house, expecting to find a major drug dealer. Rainwood is shot, and the officers frame him as a drug dealer. Rainwood is convicted of drug dealing, based on the perjured evidence of a police informant. Thrown into a seedy jail, fighting to prove his innocence is diffucult when he has to deal with the realities of prison life, where everyone claims they were framed.

Have to Stand Up in Here, but not speak up
14 March 1999 | by moma-2See all my reviews

I caught this movie one night on TV, unplanned, but stayed with it to find out how this guy gets out of the trap that others dishonestly put him in -- see how the evidence played out. I was hooked on a "memorable quote" in the movie during the prison stay where Tom Selleck's inmate friend told him during mealtime that "you don't have to speak up in here, but you have to stand up!" Gave me a personal motto that stayed with me.

I liked the story. It kept me watching; and I appreciated that Tom's wife stayed with him and believed in him and that the detective who helped him pursue the bad guys believed in him.
