The Star Chamber works brilliantly until it locks into a plot. Then it stops dancing and starts marching.
A tour-de-force thriller from Hyams and Douglas... its final moments are as gripping as Superglue!
Outstanding performances across the board.
Conspiracy abounds in this early Michael Douglas far fetcher.
A couple of great chases, but it doesn't quite live up to its intriguing premise.
The Star Chamber is an intense, thought-provoking, great-looking action-packed thriller. Sadly overlooked in theaters, this is truly an '80s buried treasure.
While the movie is set in L.A., the rules of justice appear exaggerated to the point where the film seems to be taking place in a different country, but it doesn't really matter. It would be great fun just to put up your feet and watch director Peter Hyam
directed with pace and style by Peter Hyams and beautifully photographed by Richard Hannah
I don't get why Michael Douglas, in the poster for the movie on this website, is holding a gun...he never even comes CLOSE to one, let alone use it. I just think it's quite odd. Anyway, I don't know what is it about this movie but I just didn't get into it at all. The idea is a pretty fantastic one, but a) They take to long to set up that idea and b) they never really do anything with it. There's three scenes where they're meeting, but each scene is probably a minute long. Quite frankly, I'd have preferred the entire movie to be just those meetings between them and the discussions that could come of that. I think the problem is, the movie has identity issues, it wants to be legally accurate, it wants to create discussion between the viewers about what they would do and it, somewhat, tries to be an action movie. There's a completely random, and really quite unnecessary car chase scene just because they COULD. It just doesn't work, some movies can handle different themes and ideas they want to get across (IE: Ghost Dog) and others just can't. This is one of the movies that can't. It's not a bad movie by any means, it certainly has its moments but for the potential the movie had is completely wasted. Which is why I'm hoping somebody makes a remake, or does a similar type of thing (as this actually happened in real life) because such a story is pretty much perfect for a movie. In fact, I'm quite surprised more movies haven't done this type of thing, it just seems like a no-brainer. As it stands, it's an ok movie with severe identity issues that just make the movie an underwhelming experience.
Good thriller with interesting implications on the justice system. From what I remember, the poster is a bit misleading by having Douglas armed and ready with a gun. He is a judge! The movie consists of mostly psychological thrills.
Could have been more than mildly entertaining.
