Editorial Reviews

Tom Selleck (THREE MEN AND A BABY) turns in a riveting performance as Jimmie Rainwood, an average citizen whose life becomes a living nightmare when he's framed by a pair of crooked cops and sent to prison for a crime he didn't commit. With his life torn apart, Rainwood swears revenge, vowing to fight back and deliver justice to the dishonest cops who set him up -- no matter what the price! Ultimately, Rainwood risks everything to recapture his normal life, and prove once and for all that he is an innocent man!

4.0 out of 5 stars Best Selleck Drama April 3, 2003
Format:DVD
I always like Tom Selleck movies. Some are actually very entertaining. This is by far his best dramatic role. I was very impressed how well he played the part of a framed Airline crew chief Jimmie Rainwood. F. Murray Abraham gives a great performance as one of the prison inmates, Virgil Cane, that befriends him. It has all the elements for some good drama, bad cops, drugs, decent and really bad convicts, attractive loving wife, and motive for revenge.

David Rasche and Richard Young do a fine job as the crooked detectives that frame him. I have recommended this to many people since many Selleck fans are not even aware of it. Whether you like Selleck or not you will enjoy this film if you like movies like "The Fugitive","US Marshals", and "Shawshank Redemption". It is being released on DVD soon and you can bet I pre-ordered a copy.

4.0 out of 5 stars A well done prison movie March 9, 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Tom Selleck is not an actor known for making blockbuster films. Although several of his movies (Quigley Down Under, Mr. Baseball) have several interesting scenes, on the whole they seem to lack a certain staying power.
One of his best big screen attempts is An Innocent Man. Aside from a well-rounded supporting cast, Selleck makes the audience feel for his character as he is thrown into a seemingly impossible situation. He shows a wonderful ability to change from a meek new fish to a respected convict in order to keep himself alive while inside. Although the prison film theme has been done over and over, this one takes us to a place where few others have. A well done film, and more importantly, one of Sellecks best to date.

4.0 out of 5 stars Blu Review 37 - An Innocent Man May 13, 2011
Format:Blu-ray
An Innocent Man Blu-ray Review

Distributor: Mill Creek Entertainment (US)

Tom Selleck will always be known as Magnum P.I. to anyone who grew up watching classic TV shows throughout the 1980's, however this little known film actually showcased a real talent for playing a very different kind of leading role.

The film takes a basic prison drama as the stories middle and adds a character driven beginning and an ending which at times almost borders on an action movie. Tom Selleck plays Jimmie Rainwood, an average ordinary every day guy, wrongly sent to prison by two cops that you will just love to hate and the film follows his characters story as he progresses through his time spent in a harsh prison trying to adjust to a very less than average life style. Usually, the release of the main character from his incarceration would mark the films natural conclusion, however being released from prison is only the start of Rainwood's troubles and the film continues at steady pace until the final climatic showdown which will leave you totally rooting for main character.

A very welcome, although somewhat surprising release for Blu-ray treatment, the film is presented in a 1080i 1.78:1 wide-screen transfer which actually looks pretty good. Ultimately, there is nothing here of stand out quality, however the picture looks quite sharp with some nice detail on display as well as showing reasonable colour representation and black levels also appearing natural. With minimal print damage on display apart from the odd slight flicker or speck, this new HD release really marks a vast improvement over previous DVD releases.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Entertainingly Uncomfortable Film April 6, 2004
Format:DVD
Even though you know what's going to happen to Tom Selleck's character, and you know that the ending will be happy, watching the process is enjoyably discomfiting. This is a plot film -- stuff keeps happening to the main character, things he appears utterly incapable of controlling, and everything spirals right into disaster. Great Friday night fare. Make a lot of popcorn and savor it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Sleeper (and a Keeper) July 7, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Jimmie Rainwood (Selleck) is a hard-working crew chief for a major airline. Two crooked cops are ready to line their pockets from a drug bust. It goes badly and Jimmie's new home awaits: a maximum security prison.
Life ain't easy on the inside. Luckily, he becomes friends with Virgil (F. Murray Abraham) who shows him the ropes and takes a liking to him. So does Jingles (Young). For all the wrong reasons.
The tension behind the prison walls is equal to what's happening to Rainwood's wife (Robins)outside them, courtesy of our vigilant 'protect and serve' friends. If you like your revenge sweet, and the bad guys getting theirs, then "An Innocent Man" will be your cup of poison.
I was never a huge fan of Selleck's but this film changed my mind. You'll want this movie in your personal collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mild-mannered John Q. Citizen gets backed into a corner January 18, 2008
Format:DVD
Innocent? Yes, aren't we all? But in AN INNOCENT MAN, Jimmie Rainwood (Tom Selleck) really is, albeit a presumably highly paid one as a senior mechanic on the aircraft maintenance line of American Airlines in Southern California. Married to Kate (Laila Robins) and living in a hillside house with a view of Los Angeles-San Pedro Harbor, Jimmie has the good life. That is, until he runs afoul of two corrupt drug squad detectives from the local constabulary, Parnell (David Rasche) and Scalise (Richard Young), who supplement their income partnering with a major narcotics supplier, stealing from competing dealers, and selling the goods to their patron. Mistakenly led to believe that a deal is going down at Rainwood's home, they bust in while Jimmie is home alone finishing up a shower. Parnell and Scalise shoot Rainwood thinking the hair dryer he's holding is a weapon. Realizing their mistake, they cover their tracks by planting drugs in the home and a gun in Jimmie's hand, with which he ostensibly took a shot at the officers. Ultimately, Rainwood angrily refuses to plead guilty to lesser charges to get a reduced sentence, and a jury trial results in six years in the state pen.

While incarcerated, Jimmie must thrust aside inhibitions and learn how to literally kill to survive. He does this under the tutelage of fellow con and self-admitted criminal, Virgil Cane (F. Murray Abraham), also put away by Parnell and Scalise, though they beat up Cane's girlfriend during the process of the arrest. Eventually, Rainwood is let out on parole after three years. Returning home, he and Kate continue to be oppressed by the two crooked cops, and Jimmie falls back on his hard-won survival skills to break himself and his wife free.
