3.0 out of 5 stars Ho hum..., April 14, 2002
I watched this film and Changing Lanes this weekend, and they both have two things in common -- Amanda Peet and a silver Mercedes C240. I just thought that was interesting. Ok, now back to what I thought of this film. I was disappointed at the trailers released on TV for this film. It kept saying "... surprising ending" with Jim Caviezel looming under a hallway arch. That ruined the film for me. I knew what the ending was going to be even before watching the film. I watched it just to be sure anyway ;). I think Ashley Judd and Morgan Freeman work well together. Ashley Judd plays a no nonsense lawyer trying to defend her husband Jim Caviezel in a military court on the charge of murder. Morgan Freeman plays an ex-drunk attorney who's good at trying military cases. Together they have to peel back the layers of deception and coverups that happened 13 years ago.
This film does not have any powerfully dramatic scenes. It felt like a cookie cutter suspense thriller (the type John Grisham would write). In fact, at times it tries to be light and humorous. The ending did not really provide the audience a reason to empathize with Ashley Judd's character. It was kind of vague.
LEAP rating (each out of 5):
============================
L (Language) - 3 (nothing special, no memorable lines)
E (Erotica) - 0.5 (more from Peet than Judd)
A (Action) - 2.5 (mugging, car "accident")
P (Plot) - 3 (really predictable)
