5.0 out of 5 stars One of Connery's best movies.. July 31, 2005
By M Bardi
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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 !

4.0 out of 5 stars Evil exists ... but not where you think! May 9, 2010
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.

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
Format:DVD
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 Just Cause (Snap Case) March 1, 2010
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.
