Is he innocent or guilty
24 March 2006 | by MagicStarfireSee all my reviews

This is an intense drama that takes place between Gene Hackman as the suspect, Henry Hearst, and Morgan Freeman as Capt. Victor B., mostly in the form of an interrogation at a police station in Puerto Rico.

However, it has some interesting scenes that take place outside the police station, while the interrogation is on going - showing us what might have happened.

Both Hackman and Freeman do excellent work in this film, as expected of these two pros. Thomas Jane, a good actor, has little to work with in this particular drama, which showcases Gene Hackman and Morgan Freeman as the leads.

Monica Bellucci plays Chantal, the beautiful young wife of Henry Hearst, however, in my opinion, her acting was only average except for one scene where she is crying. Mostly she is just delicious eye candy.

As the interrogation continues, Henry's story keeps changing as Victor hammers away at him about the rape and murder of two young girls, until secret after secret is uncovered and fully revealed much to Henry's humiliation.

Just prior to the ending, Henry goes completely out of character, in my opinion, and when we reach the conclusion to the case, it is somewhat disappointing.

Other than the somewhat weak ending, however, the film is quite riveting and held my interest entirely, although perhaps it is just a bit overly long for a interrogation format, and does lead at times to some repetition, it is nonetheless a highly entertaining film.

8 stars out of 10
