So choppily assembled none of the various clues and innumerable suspects ever seem to lead anywhere.
The case is crazy with clues, fights, new characters who fail to detain the attention, and all-important tapes containing something or other. The resolution is rubbish.
Mr. Reynolds has appeared in a long string of stinkers in recent years, but this time, the trouble isn't his fault.
The problem is that there is no chemistry at all between Reynolds and Russell; they stand near each other and speak words of emotion, but there's not much light in their eyes and they don't budge the needle on the romantic voltmeter.
A showcase for Russell's amateurism, the director's ineptitude and the screenwriter's clogged pen.
An ill-served courtroom drama under the uneven direction of author-turned-director Michael Crichton.
Reynolds' work is top-flight, making it all the more a shame that this vastly underrated film was a flop as a theatrical release.
Reynolds' performance as a tough former cop accused of murder is the best thing about this mediocre Jagged Edge wannabe.
I'm optimistic when it comes to spending a rainy Sunday with one of Michael Crichton's books, but I'd be far less excited to see another of his films.
...what on earth was [Michael Crichton] thinking when he agreed to helm this mess?
One more nail in Reynolds' cinematic coffin
Terribly written, terribly acted, terribly directed. Terrible!!!
