Its a great movie. The only reason people are giving it negative votes is because it shows us how much hypocrisy goes into political correctness. Today NO ONE DARES to have a black character be anything but a good guy. They certainly can't be a monster. This movie portrays people realistically, and people are angry.

A movie in my taste , detective work with twists here and there with good actors like Sean Connery and Fishburne. A must see thriller.

So the bad guy concocts a plan where he confesses to a murder and spends 8 years in prison just so he can then be released by the woman's husband who sent him to jail where he got castrated, when he could have just skipped that step and went after her from the get-go? Yeah ok Hollywood.

I didn't expect the ending to be what it was. Tough subject matter.

Artificially constructed and unplausible change of the whole situation in the end.

An interesting story that catches you interest in the beginning but slowly turns into disappointment. It lacks intensity and thrill to really captivate and get attention. Nevertheless, an avergae thriller that makes avergae TV entertainment.

A Harvard professor travels to Florida to overturn a sentence on a man he feels was wrongly convicted. A forgettable thriller with some suspense, but feeling uninspired and devoid of the pressing social issues it could have dealt with.

I loved this movie! Lots of suspense, twists and turns that keep you guessing until the end! Can't miss with Sean Connery.

It's interesting for 30 minutes, infuriating for the next 40, and complete nonsense in the last 30. The ultimate plot, as it were, relies so much on guesswork, misplaced blame and thriller cliches that it leaves infinite questions. The plot for the first 2/3rds or so consists of dozens of scenes where Connery's trying to prove the guy's innocent by asking completely logical questions about the case, and everyone saying "Look, he just did it, OK?" before assaulting him. It's too thin to be convincing, especially in light of the ending, which pretends all the horrible things the Fishburne character does in the first half, and all the incompetent police work and eyewitness reporting involved in the case, never happened. It's almost worth seeing as a textbook example of how not to make a movie.

Just Cause's filmakers seem to have been blissfully unaware that the plot twist casually introduced into the middle of their film had the (presumably unwanted) effect of reversing its political stance, or if they were aware of the problem they ignored it. A suitably convoluted plot was obviously thought to be more important than political consistency. But Connery is always likable with that Scottish accent, even in a small role Harris adds some needed kick, and the story isn't too bad, from what I paid attention to anyway, not bad. Worth watching!

I know its an old movie, but it scares me every time. Its not a horror movie, but the suspense and the killer freak me out. This will always be highly recommended.
½ February 5, 2013
Plenty of entertaining characters and convincingly misleading enough that it's not hard to find yourself looking the wrong way, which is just what I want in a suspenser. Very well done and good, amusing entertainment. Thumbs up.
