I'm a prosecutor. I'm part of the business of accusing, judging and punishing. I explore the evidence of a crime and determine who is charged, who is brought to this room to be tried before his peers. I present my evidence to the jury and they deliberate upon it. They must determine what really happened. If they cannot, we will not know whether the accused deserves to be freed or should be punished. If they cannot find the truth, what is our hope of justice?

The UK cinema version was cut by 10 secs for a 15 certificate to remove the lines "He was trying to fuck her to death" and "Paying to suck his cock in a public place". Video releases were upgraded to an 18 though the prints used were the same as the cut cinema version. See more »
I am surprised at the vast amount of people saying they didn't like Presumed Innocent. So what if it wasn't the best movie ever, it was still good. Alan Pakula (Who recently died) handled it well and John Williams' music was very fitting. The supporting cast was great, especially Brian Dennehy, Bonnie Bedelia, and Joseph Mazzello (in an excellent debut). It didn't really have the 'big-budget' feel that all of Ford's previous (and recent) movies had, and that's one of the things that make it stand out.
+ (GOOD THINGS) 1.) Ford's performance 2.) Alan Pakula's direction 3.) The supporting actors 4.) The twist ending 5.) John Williams' score 6.) The pacing
(BAD THINGS) 1.) The box design 2.) The tagline 3.) The multitude of characters
