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.
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 !
Good supporting cast (Lawrence Fishburne, among others) and good writing and direction supplies this film with the tools it needed to come across as one of many Connery's choice as an actor to be in after his James Bond days. It is one of those suspense thrillers that keeps you wondering if Mr Underwood (famous among other things for the successful TV show L.A. Law) Playing the character in death row pleading for a last chance after exhausting all avenues in appeals to convince the law he was wrongly convicted. Although this story has been done before or after this film was made, still has the ability to stand on his own.
