Trivia

The original cinematographer, Gordon Willis, quit two weeks into filming and was replaced by Jamie Anderson. Willis did not get along with director Brian Gibson, who he felt did not respect him or his abilities, and was fed up with constantly waiting for Gibson to decide how scenes should be shot.

Already been done
20 May 2006 | by DeathHeadSee all my reviews

I enjoyed this movie even though it was done two years prior with Joanne Whalley, Armand Asante and William Hurt. Slightly different plot twists, but all in all the same movie. I enjoyed both, depending on the day of the week it's a toss-up between Demi and JoAnne. I tend to lean towards Armand Asante over Alec Baldwin as the mob boss, however both do good jobs in their respective roles. Supporting cast I believe goes to Trial By Jury especially since Gabriel Byrne and William Hurt are part of it. Seems to me that TBJ is slightly more believable as far as the story goes. I do like the Alec Baldwin-Demi Moore version, however I think they capitalized on the fact that this movie was not noticed on a wide basis and jumped in to make a movie with the same premise
