Best Selleck Drama
C. A. Luster | Burke, VA USA | 04/03/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I always like Tom Selleck movies. Some are actually very entertaining. This is by far his best dramatic role. I was very impressed how well he played the part of a framed Airline crew chief Jimmie Rainwood. F. Murray Abraham gives a great performance as one of the prison inmates, Virgil Cane, that befriends him. It has all the elements for some good drama, bad cops, drugs, decent and really bad convicts, attractive loving wife, and motive for revenge.
David Rasche and Richard Young do a fine job as the crooked detectives that frame him. I have recommended this to many people since many Selleck fans are not even aware of it. Whether you like Selleck or not you will enjoy this film if you like movies like "The Fugitive","US Marshals", and "Shawshank Redemption". It is being released on DVD soon and you can bet I pre-ordered a copy."
A well done prison movie
C. A. Luster | 03/09/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Tom Selleck is not an actor known for making blockbuster films. Although several of his movies (Quigley Down Under, Mr. Baseball) have several interesting scenes, on the whole they seem to lack a certain staying power.One of his best big screen attempts is An Innocent Man. Aside from a well-rounded supporting cast, Selleck makes the audience feel for his character as he is thrown into a seemingly impossible situation. He shows a wonderful ability to change from a meek new fish to a respected convict in order to keep himself alive while inside. Although the prison film theme has been done over and over, this one takes us to a place where few others have. A well done film, and more importantly, one of Sellecks best to date."
An Entertainingly Uncomfortable Film
J. Reynolds | Houston, TX United States | 04/06/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Even though you know what's going to happen to Tom Selleck's character, and you know that the ending will be happy, watching the process is enjoyably discomfiting. This is a plot film -- stuff keeps happening to the main character, things he appears utterly incapable of controlling, and everything spirals right into disaster. Great Friday night fare. Make a lot of popcorn and savor it."
