*Also try - Lincoln Lawyer & Runaway Jury
It's a personal thing, I guess . . . I found it a stylish, well-paced movie with a gripping plot. Like another reviewer, I was more focused on the injustice of the stifling of the invention by corporate power and greed, than wanting a perfectly formed hero and plot resolution. Hey, that's life. It's not usually like a classic movie script. Some of the peripheral characters weren't fleshed out, and the lawyers for the defense were formula villains, but I felt the inventor's helpless rage, Danziger's frustration and fear, and Weiss's alternating disconnection and intensity. If the script was kind of jerky, well, that's the way that Weiss was probably seeing his life go by, and maybe not a bad directorial device.
4 stars for taking on a difficult story that's all too sadly been seen before, and trying it from a different angle.
I'll admit, I rented it for a rather shallow reason.
Captain America Chris Evan's with facial hair. :)
For that reason alone I had to see it.
That said I was treated to an absolutely awesome movie.
In a nutshell...
The movie opens with a nurse being stuck with a needle.
A man has invented a safe needle that won't stick the user or the medical professional but hospitals won't buy it.
Enter a small law firm who takes the case.
One lawyer is the ultimate drug addict/party boy "Evan's".
His partner is the straight laced type.
They take the case, sue the medical industry and...no spoilers...you'll just have to rent it.
I loved it.
Fast paced and interesting direction.
Everything was done well.
Excellent story from start to finish.
I just hear about the DVD being released and I am going to preorder it when I finish this review. If you don't get distracted by what could be flaws and details that are not part of the main storyline, I think you will like this movie. I also think you will have some greater measure of your opinion of Chris Evans' acting ability. I know I do.
This movie is the true story of a lawyer who finds out about these accidents and fights to get a safer syringe used in hospitals across the country. The characters are very convincing as real people with real problems. The acting by Chris Evans, Mark Kassen and Vinessa Shaw is all incredible and I hope Chris gets an Oscar nod for his great performance.
The film keeps a fast pace and although it's a courtroom drama it's never unexciting. The filmmakers keep the style fresh and use the camera to allow the audience complete understanding of the characters thoughts. It is a strong film with a powerful story and incredible acting.

Highly recommended viewing. Chris Evans plays a character light-years away from straight-laced Captain America, but this character has just as much courage and drive. Read morePublished 2 months ago by John S Harris
