Bill Pullman takes over the role of Rusty Sabich from Harrison Ford. Bill had spoofed Harrison's "Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977)" character of Han Solo in "Spaceballs (1987)." Alfred Molina (Sandy Stern) had worked with Harrison in "Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)." See more »


Rusty Sabich is a head appellate judge, ruling on an appeal by a convicted murderer that he prosecuted. In real life, he should have recused (removed) himself from the case or the convicts appellate lawyers should have filed to have him removed from hearing the appeal. Either way he should not have been presiding over this case as he was personally involved. See more »

Somehow disappointed
5 April 2020 | by cheer88See all my reviews

Judging by its all-star cast, this movie should be enough to be put on the pedestal. Yet, its quality more liked those on Lifetime channel. From the beginning, it did not have such suspensions like Hitchcock's movies. Although the plots were complicated, they did not resonate with audiences. The intensity of dark dramas also did not have enough momentum to carry through the whole movie. Its surroundings and paces were also lack of plausibility among other things.

It probably should be remade by different directors. I was not thrilled by those presumptuous plots which the writer tried to reinvent. In my opinion, it should have revealed the wife's mental illness from the beginning. The disclosure in the end was not enough. The wife's struggling needed to be drawn to connect the whole storyline. This missing part is crucial to the whole movie. It indeed required better cinematographers, too. I hope to see a different version of it in the future.
