| Original Score: C-
In Connery it has a hero who is inescapably appealing.
| Original Score: 3/4
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.
| Original Score: 2/5
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.
| Original Score: 2/4
The longer you stay with it, the more routine and uninspired it seems -- not to mention cowardly.
It's brutal, horribly manipulative, and we've seen this stuff before in better pictures.
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.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
