Physical Evidence Reviews

  • May 02, 2015

    Physical Evidence does a good job of keeping you guessing... but that's mostly because there is very little connection given in the film that would lead one to figuring out the whole who dunnit portion. But you do get Burt Reynolds and Theresa Russell in a Michael Crichton flick so it's not all bad. But as far as who dunnits are concerned, Physical Evidence contains very little of the title items, contains a lot of evidence that is mentioned only briefly but never really revealed, lots of teasing with little payoff, and does most the things wrong which would normally make a mystery film work. Guess Physical Evidence figured the physical presence of Reynolds and Russell were all the evidence audiences needed... unfortunately... case dismissed.

    Although Critically Panned & A Box-Office Bomb, Reynolds' & Russell's Performances Makes This Film An Enjoyable Crime Thriller

    A bit of a convoluted story has Burt as a drunk and suspended cop up on a murder rap with a snooty young female defense attorney who sort of hates him but sort of likes him too. Should have been better.

    Horrible film from the usually reliable Crichton. Perhaps he should have left the courtroom thrillers to Grisham with this one.

    Barely reaches the level of interest to watch it all the way through.

    Burt is up on a murder rap but was too bombed to remember anything that went down. He then repeatedly neglects to provide important info to his public defender. Starting to consider the latter half of the 80s as another golden age for Reynolds.

    I do occasionally like to watch shitty movies just to get a good laugh, but this is not even laughable.
