A good mystery with a few loose ends. Religious undertone appropriate for the characters was not obnoxious. Good acting.
Ok made for tv style movie. I wish that Matthew Modine's career had gone better than this. Seems to me that when they "find" God, they find no memorable acting parts to go along with it. Such a shame..
YOU SHOULD BUY THIS MOVIE! But only because they filmed it in Charlotte, NC and we need support for the local film scene. It's honestly not any better than an average Matlock or Perry Mason TV episode. It's a feel good 'Hallmark'-style courtroom drama with some charming moments. Honestly, after ready the screenplay first, I'm pretty disappointed about the decision of the director to simplify a lot of the fight/chase scenes. It just wasn't that special of a movie without them. I listened to the director's commentary afterward and it seemed like if the actors wanted to change the action in some seens and he let them do what they wanted to do. You need to control it better if you're the director. IMO. This could have been a lot better AND a lot worse.
