If Hollywood ever totally collapses, films like High Crimes will be the reason why.
December 24, 2010
Mediocre thriller of the betrayed-woman genre.

Hampered by a bad script, this is a middling political thriler that's not supsenseful or dramatic enough to generate any interest in the proceedings; the good Morgan Freeman is totally wasted.

This is the work of a director who seems to have been as bored and uninspired making this movie as I was watching it.

High Crimes has its fair share of decent courtroom scenes but the legal tussles are far better than the emotional ones.

This thriller-by-numbers fails to add anything fresh to an already exhausted genre.

Sure it's a good movie...if you've never seen one mystery flick in your entire life!

It's a serviceable courtroom mystery, geared for unadventurous Saturday night crowds who know exactly what they want.
August 22, 2002
The twists and red herrings of the plot are so telegraphed to the viewer that they hit the screen with the detached precision of a bus schedule.
August 10, 2002
The movie doesn't leave a person looking at his watch every few minutes. But the action is too far-fetched and the ending, in particular, is unconvincing.
August 9, 2002
Comes off more like a misdemeanor, a flat, unconvincing drama that never catches fire.
July 20, 2002
A well-mounted and well-acted suspense movie that, thanks to its illogical script, falls off a cliff midway through.
