"I think this film is one of the best films Devon Sawa has ever appeared in. I will admit the beginning is pretty boring, but as the film goes on, the better it gets. It's all about a lawyer, Callum Crane (Bill Pullman) who only cares about himself and his career and a young boy, Nathan Corrigan (Devon Sawa) who has just got out of jail and begins looking for his real father who just so happens to be Callum. On a one off date with his secretary, Sophie (Gabrielle Anwar), Callum gets very drunk, and rapes her. She then files a lawsuit against him after he fires her and gets promoted to be a judge. Callum hires Nathan after he saves him from being mugged by two thugs in a carpark to kill her. Nathan gets $5.000, a photo and an address of where Sophie lives, but throws it away, only to be found by his pal, Leo (Jaimz Woolvett) who owes money to someone. When he hears there's another $25.000 in the bag for killing Sophie, he sets out to find her...
Very good film which I recommend if you want to be in suspense!"

"Actor Bill Pullman (While You Were Sleeping) gets past the average acting of the younger stars in "The Guilty" to make a pretty good suspense/murder mystery. Too much airtime was given to the younger actors which is always a mistake when seasoned talent is also used. Afterall, it's Mr. Pullman's name and talent that makes viewers want to see the movie. It's murder with a twist and a moral: Don't get caught up with Generation X."
