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. [....]

Hi..
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 !

Format: DVD
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.

*Spoilers*

I bought this movie on speculation, assuming that anything involving both Sean Connery and Laurence Fishburne couldn't possibly go wrong, but it turns out I was underestimating the power of a horrible, didactic plot.

The movie starts out promisingly enough, with Connery in the role of a crusading law professor, out to right all the injustices of our death penalty driven legal system, and with Fishburne playing out the role of the dirty cop who breaks all the rules in order to take down the criminal - even if the 'criminal' is really innocent and the rules are broken in order to egregiously railroad the wrong man for a horrible crime.

This is the stuff of good drama, and really the film-makers should have been satisfied with this. But, no, everything has to have a 'twist' these days, so after Connery uses his legal kung fu to break our innocent, railroaded victim out of jail, there's still a good 45 minutes left in the movie, so you just know that can't be the end of it. Indeed, somewhere it is written that if anyone is freed from prison more than 30 minutes before the movie ends, then they will inevitably be left holding the Whodunit bag at the end of the film (conversely, if anyone is sent to prison with 30 minutes remaining, they're either the wrong guy for the crime, or just a flunky for the "real" mastermind).

Sure enough, all hell breaks loose immediately after judicial release, and Connery comes to realize what Fishburne was smart enough to clue in on an hour ago - the innocent jailbird isn't so innocent after all, and Fishburne was just doing what was necessary ("just cause", get it?) in order to put a dangerous man behind bars.

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.

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.

In 1986, in Ochopee, Florida, 11-year-old Joanie Shriver is kidnapped, raped, and murdered. Bobby Earl Ferguson is arrested by officers Tanny Brown and J. T. Wilcox, who proceed to beat Bobby into confessing to the murder. Bobby is placed on trial, where Bobby's defense attorney McNair puts up a lousy defense for Bobby, and Bobby is sentenced to be executed. Now, eight years later, Bobby hands a letter to his grandmother Evangeline and asks Evangeline to go to Cambridge, Massachusetts, to hire Harvard law professor Paul Armstrong to clear Bobby's name. At Harvard, Paul is attacking capital punishment in a campus debate, when Evangeline arrives and hands the letter to Paul. Paul goes home, where his wife Laurie is throwing a birthday party for their young daughter Katey. Laurie reads the letter and she encourages Paul to take the case, even though he hasn't practiced law in 25 years. Paul, Laurie, and Katey head to Florida, where Paul meets Bobby in the prison. Bobby tells Paul his side of the story and what Tanny and Wilcox did. Paul begins to believe that Bobby was railroaded. Bobby tells Paul to speak to Blair Sullivan, a man who is also on death row. Blair gives Paul some clues that could prove Bobby's innocence, and Blair's own guilt. But in the process of trying to clear Bobby, Paul learns some disturbing truths about Bobby, putting Paul and his family in a fight for their lives. "Just Cause" is a psychological thriller about the American justice system in general, and capital punishment in particular. There are several plot twists which will surprise you, and towards the end of the movie, the action really starts to set in. Sean Connery is reliable as the stout, solid professor Armstrong, and as the centerpiece of the movie, he is totally convincing. But as the dubious police officer Tanny Brown, it is Laurence Fishburne who truly excels. A solid thriller that delivers the goods.
