I’ve only seen one film by director Gary Fleder before this one, and here he delivers a terrific drama that manages to really be entertaining enough despite its flaws, and it’s one of those cases where the performances save the film from being a total bore, as the story itself is nothing too elaborate. Oct 22, Full Review…. Full List of Academy Awards Winners. A lot of famous faces populate the courtroom in this overplotted and farfetched tale of jury-tampering, but they and the horse they rode in on are all so mired in illogical, head-scratching incoherence, they need lawyers of their own. Sure the premise stretches plausibility but the overqualified cast John Cusack, Gene Hackman, Dustin Hoffman do a fantastic job giving the proceedings depth and intrigue. Already have an account? I wanna go home. Marguerite Moreau as Amanda Monroe.

What do you hope to achieve if you win? Nick Searcy as Doyle. He will know everything about their lives, and strategically manipulate the jury selection process.
Basically a good thriller, that is worth watching, but don’t expect too much, you might feel let down. A young lawyer joins a prestigious law firm only to discover that it has a sinister dark side. The mix of thrills, mixed with the courtroom aspect of the story goes well hand in hand, and it johnn for an even more compelling picture.

I wanna go home. Margo Moorer as Kaufman. Gerry Bamman as Herman Grimes. Apr 29, Full Review…. Rhoad Griffis as Rikki Coleman.
Trials are too important to be decided by juries. In a urteiil attempt to prove his innocence, a skilled police negotiator accused of corruption and murder takes hostages in a government office to gain the time he needs to find the truth. Hackman, Weisz and Cusack are all on top form for this one, but Hoffman’s Character seemed to lack a little depth. As in all his films, there’s a sense that honest human emotion bores Fleder, but he gets points for packing the trial with fine character actors, all of them adept at wringing humor and poignancy from cliche.
