Ok made for tv style movie. I wish that Matthew Modine's career had gone better than this. Seems to me that when they "find" God, they find no memorable acting parts to go along with it. Such a shame..

Bom filme de Tribunal. Um enredo bem amarrado, mesmo assim é bem previsível.

This movie was so bad. It was very boring and very poorly executed. Honestly, it's much worse than even Law and Order on television. Breathing for 101 minutes would have been a better use of your time.

"The Trial" could have been SO much better. No character exploration, spotty direction. It was obviously such a painful effort to keep this a PG-13 movie. Just a very dull flick with little suspense. If you sleep through the middle after seeing the beginning and the ending you haven't really missed much. The kid accused of murder isn't guilty and that's exactly what you knew at the beginning. Unfortunately, I didn't sleep through it.

Not of it all if it made sense but thats typical for a law movie. But it kept you entertained and was a LOT better than the legal garbage on TV.

Shitstorm of a shit movie. I fell asleep (literally) after thirty minutes, but woke back up to see the shitty ending.

B-acting, slow, not believeable

**1/2 (out of four)

The amiable Matthew Modine stars as a lawyer who is suicidal after the deaths of his wife and two sons in a car accident. Just as he is about to shoot himself he gets a phone call about a new court case. It involves a teenage boy (Randy Wayne) accused of murdering his girlfriend. He takes the case even though the evidence is stacked against them.

Based on the popular novel, the movie version is slick and well made, but it feels more like a made-for-tv-movie and is pretty darn predictable.
