Good, but it could be better.
14 June 2015 | by kbaniSee all my reviews

My expectations about this movie were low, because i'm sick of law/cop/prosecutors Hollywood crap, but i was surprised.

"Why me" has strong acting and an interesting story, especially because is a real story. We are introduced in year 2002, 13 years after the revolution in Romania and the fall of communism. But for the judicial system of this country, is like there was no revolution. In the highest level of Prosecutor Office there is still that smell of socialism. The Securitate(secret police which served the Communist party, something like the German STASI)is still there, but now is renamed SRI, some ex-securitate officers now rule the country as politicians, and the old corrupted/repressive prosecutors are still in charge.

Add a young, honest and competent prosecutor in all that mess and you've a good movie, worth watching.

I'll give it a 7 out of 10 because i wanted to see more depth. Also, character progression seemed a Little bit hard to believe, like they were skipping some scenes.
