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. [....]

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.

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
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.

This movie has all the components of a formulaic tale about a black man unjustly arrested for the murder of a young white girl. A college educated black man in a small town in Florida is arrested when a young white girl is raped and brutally murdered. The local sheriff and his deputy beat him for 22 hours and extort a confession out of him. The only unusual difference is that while the deputy is white, the sheriff is black.
Sean Connery plays a Harvard Law professor who is adamantly opposed to the death penalty and he is introduced taking that position in a debate. The black man's grandmother has traveled up from Florida to plead with Connery to take her grandson's case before he is executed. After being shamed by his ex-prosecutor wife, Connery agrees to look into it. Once there, he finds several inconsistencies in the evidence, but time and again he encounters people who strongly and sometimes physically encourage him to let matters lie. The attorney who defended the black man openly admits to Connery that he lost business for defending the man and that he would have probably had to have left town if he had achieved an acquittal.
Connery persists and gets what he feels is a just verdict, which only begins the development of the true story, which takes many convoluted twists. These gyrations will keep your mind racing as you try to anticipate what will be the next movement.
As always, Sean Connery turns in an excellent performance. However, the stars of the movie are Lawrence Fishburne as the sheriff and Ed Harris as a deranged serial murder. Harris is spectacular as a man who is truly criminally insane, yet can when necessary be very rational and calculating. I enjoyed the movie, Connery avoided slipping into any dramatic hero persona; I thought he played the role a little too passively. However, that is just my experience is seeing him in the hero's role. In nearly every way he responded as a Harvard Law professor would.
