Good crime flick with strength in casting of Sean Connery.

Forgettable and less than thrilling.

Ridiculous from start to finish. Connery, Harris, and Fishburne couldn't have wasted their time in a less productive fashion.

In Connery it has a hero who is inescapably appealing.

Despite its merits, the script fails to escape the silly season that fouls up so many thrillers, that time when the twists merely seem like the narrative equivalents of those violin shrieks on a cheesy score.

It doesn't bog down in the bogs, but it's slow-moving just about everyplace else.

A sorry excuse for a thriller, with both narrative and character handled with remarkable ineptitude.

Things heat up for the last bang-up 40 minutes all right, but why did director Arne Glimcher feel it necessary to go so formulaically dull at first?

The plot machinations here become so contrived and the coincidences so bizarre that by the end ... audience members will likely be scratching their heads.

On the whole the film ends up no more than an unbelievable action picture with a few rewarding performances.

It's brutal, horribly manipulative, and we've seen this stuff before in better pictures.

The longer you stay with it, the more routine and uninspired it seems -- not to mention cowardly.

There is no psychological depth, no real motivation, no human values to weigh, just characters jerked here and there like puppets in an arbitrary plot.

It's a rich, humid mix of race, murder, and mystery that works well, even if it doesn't work perfectly.

Despite its tendency to tread well-traveled roads, Just Cause is filmed with enough energy and craft that, for the majority of its one-hundred minute running time, it's reasonably entertaining.
