Audience Reviews for An Innocent Man


Tom Selleck is forced to get TOUGH to survive in prison, when he is framed for murder. He doesn't look good in blue, and looks better in Hawaiian shirts as Magnum P.I. It's a bit scary when anybody as nice as Tom Selleck can get sent to prison. The scene where the guards take away his wedding ring was sad. F. Murray Abraham helps him get even against a nasty gang of cons. Once Tom gets out of prison, he has real "conviction" to go after the bad cops who framed him, with a great ending scene. Not the most exciting film, but it has some unintentionally funny scenes.

Super Reviewer

Rather clumsy prison flick that is yet more proof that Tom Selleck does not have the star presence to carry a project beyond the small screen. F Murray Abraham provides some dramatic gravitas, but it just feels so "straight to video".

Super Reviewer

Average mystery-thriller of a framed guy surviving in prison' story.
