Mediocre thriller of the betrayed-woman genre.

Emanuel Levy

Hampered by a bad script, this is a middling political thriler that's not supsenseful or dramatic enough to generate any interest in the proceedings; the good Morgan Freeman is totally wasted.

Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)

This is the work of a director who seems to have been as bored and uninspired making this movie as I was watching it.

High Crimes has its fair share of decent courtroom scenes but the legal tussles are far better than the emotional ones.

...Starts out as a taut and intriguing story but seems to get more preposterous as it goes...

Military whodunit isn't great drama, but director Carl Franklin's skill makes for an above-average thriller.

A pretty fair -- if twist-happy -- thriller.

[Judd and Freeman] radiate an intelligence that makes so-so movies seem much better.

This thriller-by-numbers fails to add anything fresh to an already exhausted genre.

Sure it's a good movie...if you've never seen one mystery flick in your entire life!

Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)

It's a serviceable courtroom mystery, geared for unadventurous Saturday night crowds who know exactly what they want.

The twists and red herrings of the plot are so telegraphed to the viewer that they hit the screen with the detached precision of a bus schedule.

Movie Metropolis

The movie doesn't leave a person looking at his watch every few minutes. But the action is too far-fetched and the ending, in particular, is unconvincing.

Comes off more like a misdemeanor, a flat, unconvincing drama that never catches fire.

A well-mounted and well-acted suspense movie that, thanks to its illogical script, falls off a cliff midway through.

Another paint-by-numbers, cliché-ridden Hollywood thriller. You asked for it!

'High Crimes' is criminal, criminal filmmaking. It's bad, and not in that '80s good way, just not good.

A new type of role here for the great Morgan Freeman, who plays Grimes like a senior Hell's Angel on valium.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

Its surprises are about as surprising as discovering fruit at a fruit stand. As filmmaking, it's rarely more than professional. But it works better than it has any right to thanks to the performances of Ashley Judd and Morgan Freeman.

May cause you to bite your tongue to keep from laughing at the ridiculous dialog or the oh-so convenient plot twists.
