Goofs

After returning from his errand to get Henry a "Cold Drink", it seems detective Owens carries a large Styrofoam cup with a lid attached by pinching the lip at the top of the cup and swinging it as he walks. It would seem to prove that this was a prop - the hollow sound as it hits the table adding to the effect. In fact, the detective holds a can of soda as well, and he places it behind the cup.

Two Great Actors - One Lousy Film
8 September 2006 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

Wow, you get two tremendous lead actors - two of my favorites in Gene Hackman and Morgan Freeman - but, unfortunately, you get a very disappointing movie.

Almost the whole story, except for flashbacks, in this stage-like movie takes place in a police captain's (Freeman) office as he interrogates the murder suspect (Hackman). It goes on and on and gets depressing after awhile.

And....if you think that long segments gets tiresome, the ending will really leave you frustrated. See other reviews if you want to find out the ending.
