July 31, 2013
A top-notch courtroom drama that will keep you guessing if you haven't read the book; even if you have, it is still a very well crafted story.
July 31, 2013
A riveting adaptation of Scott Turow`s novel about a prosecutor prosecuted for murder.

This deliberately paced, almost monochromatic movie reserves its real energy and color for blaming the victim.
August 30, 2012
Gripping, well-acted whodunit courtroom drama.
September 7, 2011
Director Alan J. Pakula, who cowrote the script with Frank Pierson, has done a reasonable job of compressing Turow's plot into a two-hour space. But the narrative skeleton is all that's left.

I mean, honestly. Sabich torching his marriage and career makes perfect sense opposite a full-court-press from the likes of Greta Scacchi. Pakula was no fool.

As moody mysteries go, the courtroom drama Presumed Innocent is among the moodiest. [Blu-ray]

No masterpiece, but it has a certain snappiness to it that is entertaining, at least.
March 26, 2009
Honed to a riveting intensity by director Alan Pakula and featuring the tightest script imaginable, Presumed Innocent is a demanding, disturbing javelin of a courtroom murder mystery.
June 24, 2006
In a welcome return to suspense, Pakula effectively conveys the claustrophobia of domesticity and courtroom procedure.
