Storyline

Rookie lawyer Alec Brno has just been assigned the case of his career: exposing a billion-dollar oil scam led by a ruthless mafia boss. When he reluctantly falls for the gangster's beautiful but drug-addicted wife - also his key witness - Alec soon realizes that all the legal savvy in the world can't protect him from the dangerous reality of mob violence. In a system where criminals often walk free, sometimes courtroom warriors must take the battle for justice into their own hands. Written by Echo Bridge Home Entertainment

just didn't hold my attention
21 October 2014 | by blanche-2See all my reviews

I love this genre, so it's gotten to the point that I've seen so many films like this that I've apparently worked my way down to the C list.

This film, "Warrior Class" from 2007, went right to video. The biggest name in it is Jamey Sheridan. I will admit I was unfamiliar with some of the other actors, except for Jake Weber from "Medium," Robert Vaughn, of course, Dan Hedaya, and I thought I went to school with Michael Medeiros, but I think it was another person of the same name. So it's evident it is a strong supporting cast.

The story concerns a new attorney, Alec Brno (Anson Mount), who wins a case in court and then is assigned to a huge, career-making case. A mob boss has stolen a billion dollars in oil. The main gangster involved is Phil Anwar (Jake Weber), who has a little daughter and a drug-addicted wife, Annie (Erica Leerhsen) who has enough information to put him away. Alec finds himself falling for Annie, and vice versa, and realizes she's in grave danger, and he's up against some powerful forces.

Unfortunately, this film did not hold my attention. I think it could have been either shortened or better directed. Also, as attractive as Anson Mount is, I can't say I found him a strong leading man. Erica Leerhsen was better - of course she had a showier role, but she acquitted herself well.

For me, this was an uninvolving, derivative, and predictable film.

The film looks like it had a decent budget, but there is nothing to make it really special. With a big name and some work on the script, it might have passed muster.
