Good courtroom dramas have that surprising twist at the end. I kept waiting but it didn't happen here. There seemed to be a lack of interesting chemistry amongst the characters as well. A good premise that failed to live up to its potential. Grade: C.
Predictably unrealistic. Its no fun when the good guy wins so easily. Grade C-.
I suppose it was well done if it was meant to be darkly depressing and invoke a feeling of despair. Maybe I just can't enjoy a story that drags on with little or no spark of hope. Just sayin... Grade C
This one did not live up to its potential. Good idea for a story but you have to at least care about the characters and I did not. The only redeeming feature in the film was an aha! moment near the end. Grade D+
I like most of the Coen brothers' stuff. But not this. I wanted to like it but.. sorry it didn't grab me at all. Grade C-.
