5.0 out of 5 stars CLOCKWORK OAKLAND April 28, 2000
Format:DVD
At least two scenes of TRUE CRIME should stay in my memory for a very long time : the visit at the zoo with Clint Eastwood shouting "Speed Zoo" and "We're going fast" while pushing his daughter on wheels and the scene involving Clint and James Woods for a conversation about women, ethics and capital punishment : two great actors for a moment of pure pleasure.
At first, TRUE CRIME could be considered as another movie about capital punishment. Well filmed, with a good rythm and convincing actors, this movie is the perfect movie to rent. But take a second look at TRUE CRIME and you won't be disappointed. This movie can be seen one, two or three times, it will still unveil a lot of goodies. One can admire how Clint Eastwood compares with subtlety the destiny of Steve Everett and Frank Beechum by using descriptions of similar situations : for example, the two little girls harassing their fathers with multiple demands at a crucial moment. Let's also observe how Clint uses a clever editing to pass from Beechum's cell to Clint's scenes : cigarettes, paintings (the green pastures) for instance are themes that bind the two destinies.
I strongly recommend this film which is another masterpiece in the exceptional directorial career of Clint Eastwood. Sound and images perfect for me with above-averages extra-features.
A DVD for your library. At least, I hope so !

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must See Movie! September 2, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
When I first saw the trailer, I thought this was going to be a boring movie. But once I saw it, I just had to get the word out that this was one of the best movies I've seen in a long time. The movie is filled with suspense, great acting, and a wonderful plot/story. It's about an innocent man saved from the death penalty at the exact moment. To enjoy the movie you must see it with the proper settings and without distraction. Otherwise, you won't enjoy it as much. The movie has a lot of big names in the movie including Clint Eastwood, who produced and directed this movie, Dennis Leary, and etc. Happened to see Absolute Power, directed by Eastwood, but this movie is a much superior film. Eastwood definitely redeemed himself in this one. So go watch this great film.

4.0 out of 5 stars I liked it October 11, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I liked it for reasons others might not: The characters were monumentally flawed, except perhaps for Eastwood's wife. And it was refreshing to see overpaid movie actors not playing the perfect people they usually insist on playing (William Goldman, the screenwriter, says he has to write novels, because just writing screenplays means writing only perfect people, and gets tiresome). Regarding the comment about Eastwood in bed with the thirty-ish woman: the woman looked pretty beat up to me, too, and possibly forty-ish. But Eastwood should have kept his shirt on. He lifts weights, and has muscle bulk, but the skin on his torso looks too old to show off. But I'd rather see Clint Eastwood with his shirt off, than Marlon Brando with his! Anyway, Eastwood plays a guy who is really a jerk (like in the "speed zoo" scene) a lot of the time, and I found that interesting. Personally, I think Eastwood is a sloppy director. His movies he's directed have a clunky feel, and this one had that too, but not so much that good aspects of his direction weren't evident. (His sloppiest direction effort was the pathetically clunky one he did two pictures ago, where Gene Hackman plays the President, and whose title escapes me). Logic was stretched in this film, but it was believable enough for me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Let's say it was OK ! November 17, 1999
Format:DVD
I've read the reviews from other people, and felt they were a bit unfair. I completly agree that seeing Clint half-naked isn't the best scene in the movie, that the plot is somehow predictible, and Clint should play womanizers anymore.
Still, Clint is still a fantastic actor, the performance by Isaiah Washington is nothing less than outstanding.
The movie itself has a light smell of the 70s, which remind the Dirty Harry days.
I enjoyed this movie, I can also accept some people didn't, but I think it was good

5.0 out of 5 stars Eastwood Is The Man January 30, 2004
Format:DVD
Another great Eastwood directed film with terrific performances by everyone in the cast especially (i.e. Isaiah Washington, Lisa Gay Hamilton and James Woods). Eastwood is one of my favorite directors ever. If you are in any way familiar with an old radio show called "Nightbeat" this film is very similiar. This one has a very suspenseful ending.

4.0 out of 5 stars It Gets You March 7, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
You know the story: man about to be executed and last minute fight to save him. The only thing is, the directing and acting by Clint Eastwood is so good and the story line is so riveting, that it holds you and grabs you in the gut, from beginning to end. All of the acting is worth the price and Eastwood's real daughter (who plays his little girl inthe movie), is amazing in her short acting bits. What a kid! As the recovered alcoholic newspaper reporter, Eastwood still has the nose for the truth in this good script. If you favor capital punishment, you may think it through again after seeing this film.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Quest For Truth And Justice September 2, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
When a jaded reporter gets an eleventh hour assignment to witness an execution at San Quentin, it turns into a personal quest for justice as he spends the last hours of the convicted man's life in a last-ditch effort to get to the truth of the case. "True Crime," directed by and starring Clint Eastwood, is a taut thriller that goes to the wire as Steve Everett (Eastwood), a journalist and recovering alcoholic, tries to find out what really happened that fateful day when Frank Beachum (Isaiah Washington) entered a convenience store to buy a bottle of steak sauce and wound up being convicted of murdering the store clerk. It's not a campaign born entirely of compassion, however; Everett has had a checkered career that has taken him to the top of his profession, only to have his own errors of judgment (attributed to the bottle) precipitate a swift decline that has ensconced him in a job at a large paper in the Bay area of Northern California writing personality pieces and sidebar profiles. He's not a man of tremendously high ideals or great conviction, and his moral character is somewhat ambiguous, but he demands one thing from himself and everyone else when it comes to reporting a story: The truth. In that he is adamant, and he pursues it without compromise using the one tool in his personal arsenal that has never (when he is sober) failed him, his "nose" for news, that innate sense that unfailingly leads him to that which he is seeking. In the case of Frank Beachum, Everett's nose tells him he is innocent; but he's only got a few hours to prove it. And it's been awhile since his "nose" has been put to the test; the last time turned into a debacle that cost him his reputation. This time, not only his job, but a man's life is on the line. And the clock is ticking. Read more ›
