Editorial Reviews

Sean Connery, Laurence Fishburne, Ed Harris and more top talents ignite the fast-paced nerve-jangler that pumps the adrenaline full throttle and works the gray matter overtime. Connery plays Paul Armstrong, a Harvard Law School professor who reopens a murder investigation on behalf of a Death Row inmate (Blair Underwood) who claims he was forced by a sinister lawman (Fishburne) to confess to a crime he didn't commit. On the surface, it seems to be a straight-ahead case of the prisoner's guilt or innocence. But nothing really lies on the surface of this mystery set in the Florida swamplands. Expect the unexpected.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Connery's best movies.. July 31, 2005
By M Bardi
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I don't get why so many people didn't like this movie, and why is there all those negative reviews about the film ?
This film is just great, it has an interesting plot, great acting by all the stars and a good ending.
So don't you guys pay any attention to those negative reviews, this movie has it all.

I personally think that this is one of connery's best movies with an amazing performance by all especially connery !
And the scene where connery's character interviews Harris's character is one of my favourite scenes, quit memorable and thrilling !

This is a must BUY movie and is highly recommended !

4.0 out of 5 stars Evil exists ... but not where you think! May 9, 2010
A bravo performance by the great Sean Connery, plus a fairly imaginative storyline, saves this one from mediocrity. The supporting cast is not bad, although you really never get to know them much. You may think that you see where this one is going, but there are surprises.

A young black man is on death row for a murder that he maintains he did not commit. Connery plays a liberal, anti-death penalty law professor who gets talked into trying for a new appeal in the case. Turns out that the convict was indeed beaten and coerced into making his confession in what was otherwise a fairly thin case against him. But all is not what it seems, and more would be telling. This one held my interest throughout. It has a somewhat strange moral message if you want to call it that.

One of the better suspense/murder films out there. This one is worth a try, especially for Sean Connery fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars I DIDN'T EXPECT THIS TO BE GREAT..AND IT REALLY IS!! January 12, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
I remember the night I first watched this movie. I rented it at the Video Shop, without much enthusiasm & at the insistence of my roommate. Well, let me tell you, this Thriller is exactly that..THRILLING!! Every turn and twist imaginable is in this movie. Did he or didn't he kill that little girl? I was on the edge of my seat for most of the movie. Ed Harris is terrific as well as Sean Connery, who just keeps getting better with age. I recommend BUYING this movie. I have watched it about 4 or 5 times now and my heart races each and every time. [....]

3.0 out of 5 stars JUST BECAUSE... March 21, 2005
Initially intrigued by this movie's numerous plot twists, it's only in retrospect that I now see the movie's numerous flaws that prevent it from being a top notch movie. Sean Connery does well in his role as a Harvard law professor asked to prove a death row inmate's innocence. Seems his confession came about as a result of a violent coercion from the town's two law officers. Throw in a subplot involving Connery's lawyer wife, a demented Hannibal Lechter-like serial killer, and lots of confusion about the innocence or guilt of both the accused and/or the law officer. The movie gives itself away with the quick vindication of the accused; you know something is going on, or the movie would have been over. The main problem in the end, is that we never really understand exactly why the killer chose to kill this little girl, and just how far someone would go to exact revenge. You can't really fault the cast, though: Kate Capshaw as the wife does well with what little she is given to do; Laurence Fishburne is appropriately smarmy and unlikeable; Ed Harris has a field day as the demented serial killer; and we even get glorious "cameos" from future Oscar hopeful Scarlett Johanson; George Plimpton, Chris Sarandon, Daniel J. Travanti, Hope Lange, Ned Beatty and Kevin McCarthy. It's the movie's own self righteousness and improbability that ultimately brings it down to something you may enjoy while watching, but it leaves a bitter aftertaste.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good first 75 minutes, falls apart afterward. January 12, 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
For the first 75 or so minutes, Just Cause is solid movie entertainment. It features a rather unoriginal premise, about a black man accused of raping and murdering a young white girl and is sentenced to death row, but is intriguing, nonetheless. Sean Connery plays Paul Armstrong, the man the accused killer-Bobby Earl-convinces to help find the man truly responsible.
Just Cause is an always watchable thriller, and there small plot twists turns along the way. At the 75 minute mark is the movie's big revelation, which is actually a bit more surprising than I thought it would be. But the movie goes downhill from there, resulting in a mess of car chases and fistfights. Still, it's well worth watching for those first 75 or so minutes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Cause February 13, 2014
By Nikkie
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This movie is not for children, it has some pretty twisted concepts along with some vulgar language. But other than that, this movie is a great Sean Connery film. If you love CSI's or any kind of murder mysteries, you'll love this film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Evil in the Everglades May 28, 2002
Sean Connery stars as Harvard law professor Paul Armstrong in this cunning and twisting story of primeval evil and revenge. Bobby Earl is locked up in prison for the horrific rape and murder of an 11-year old girl in Ochopee, Florida. Bobby Earl's letter, delivered to Armstrong by Bobby Earl's grandmother, pulls the law professor into Florida where he reopens the investigation of the murder. While he's working, discovering how flimsy the evidence was against Bobby Earl, Armstrong is stalked by the two policemen that put the young man away. Tanny Brown, the lead policeman, is convinced that Bobby Earl is guilty, and isn't at all remorse about putting a gun inside the defendant's mouth to exact a confession. Armstrong's investigation leads him back to the prison where Bobby Earl is being held, and to the madman serial killer, Blair Sullivan, who is going to be executed within days. Armstrong meets resistance at every turn, but the surprises are even more daunting. Only days into the case, Armstrong finds out that Bobby Earl was brought up on kidnapping charges before the murder, and that the prosecuting attorney was none other than Armstrong's own wife who urged him to take the case.
Sean Connery is hands-down one of the best actors in the business. Watching him work so effortlessly, yet hitting every nuance and pulling the audience into the story, is poetry in motion. Besides starring as the original James Bond, he's played in dozens of movies, portraying serious roles as well as comic relief. Lawrence Fishburne, Tanny Brown in the movie, is known to most fans as Morpheus in THE MATRIX, but he's done several crime thrillers in addtion to this one, including ALWAYS OUTNUMBERED, HOODLUM, FLED, and DEEP COVER.
