Great script, Good acting, Smart twist, .. One Enjoyable Movie!
31 July 2001 | by LoayOmranSee all my reviews

Rowdy Herrington, writer and director, of A Murder of Crows proves his talent with this movie. One must point out that the writing is the true star of this movie. The directing is also quite good. Cuba Gooding Jr. stars as a young talented lawyer at the begging of his promising career to fame and fortune. He is dealing with a Big Case ... one that he suddenly decides to leave .. and the result is: disaster for his career. This is just the opening of the movie. What happens next is a completely different story, that is for sure related to the opening. Lawyers start to get killed, Cuba's life might be in danger, he must discover what's going on. Will he succeed?... You are in for a tense ride, with many smart twists, that will leave you satisfied with the end result. I rented this movie, because Cuba was good in Jerry Maguire ... and now I know that Rowdy Herrington & Cuba Gooding Jr. are both quite talented. I never expected much from this movie, and what I got in return was a GOOD movie with good acting and directing and a Great Script. Recommended. 8/10
