Movie Info

Up-and-coming Boston attorney Ben Chase (Gary Oldman) successfully defends wealthy Martin Thiel (Kevin Bacon) on the charge of a particularly vicious murder. Within 24 hours, another similarly styled murder occurs -- with a new twist that allows Chase to realize he has allowed a guilty man to run free. Chase is startled when Thiel contacts him, requesting he defend him again. Recklessly agreeing in order to gather evidence against Thiel, Chase is soon dragged into the killer's twisted game.

Audience Reviews for Criminal Law

  • Mar 18, 2009
    I was expecting alot more for a film that featured both Gary Oldman and Kevin Bacon. They both did a great job in their roles - Gary as a defense atty. who manages to get his client (Bacon) acquitted of murder; and then finds out his client is guilty. Bacon is great at doing creepy. I just thought the story was long and tedious in some places and quite predictable.

    Gary Oldman as a good guy!

    Gary Oldman gives a strong performance in this suspense-thriller as an attorney who successfully defends accused killer Kevin Bacon. At first, the film bristles with tension and intelligence, yet it goes on to become predictable and ludicrous.
