Critic Reviews for The Star Chamber
A tour-de-force thriller from Hyams and Douglas... its final moments are as gripping as Superglue!
Conspiracy abounds in this early Michael Douglas far fetcher.
A couple of great chases, but it doesn't quite live up to its intriguing premise.
The Star Chamber is an intense, thought-provoking, great-looking action-packed thriller. Sadly overlooked in theaters, this is truly an '80s buried treasure.
While the movie is set in L.A., the rules of justice appear exaggerated to the point where the film seems to be taking place in a different country, but it doesn't really matter. It would be great fun just to put up your feet and watch director Peter Hyam
Audience Reviews for The Star Chamber
Good thriller with interesting implications on the justice system. From what I remember, the poster is a bit misleading by having Douglas armed and ready with a gun. He is a judge! The movie consists of mostly psychological thrills.More
