Sandra F. (Sami) from ST PETERSBURG, FL
Reviewed on 6/23/2008...
This actually turned out to be a pretty good movie about a detective who really got screwed by the "system". It shows what a joke our judicial system can be at times. It was worth the watch to see what extremes the cop has to go to to prove the bad guy guilty and to prove his own innocence.

Pullman perfect, HBO sells him short
becky robison | ft. worth, texas United States | 11/15/2001
(3 out of 5 stars)

"HBO needs to stick to showing other people's movies and give up on making their own. Bill Pullman (While You Were Sleeping) gives it his best shot in this unrealistic movie of a cop holding prisoners at gun point in a courtroom and letting the whole world see it on television. It's a sad sign of the times. Another great actor that didn't get used well was Robert Loggia (Big). Great talent needs to work to become better. This movie justs makes you wish they didn't have to do movies like this to perfect their craft."

"Bill Pullman plays a cop who angry at the acquittal of a cop killer takes over the courtroom and begins his own trial. Brilliant performances by Pullman and Robert Loggia as the captain."
