(1994) Trial By Jury
Very standard crime drama, whereas at the beginning of the film, a witness gets himself killed while in police protection custody, sent by gangster Rusty Pirone, laughbly played by Armand Assante! Then the real story begins, starting with the Joanne Whalley character as Valerie Alston whose being slated for 'jury duty', on a case involving Rusty whose accused of several murders, random hits and assassinations. Placing Valerie and her oblivious underage son to get theatened, unless she sways her vote as well as others to vote for his acquitle, even though the evidence was heavily against him, putting her into a very complicated situation. Dumb, stupid and fake, whereas there's no servillance on the accused gangster, except on one lawyer(Gabriel Byrne) who appears to be the only person who could do something, not the police or anybody else, which includes the FBI, portraying police men as incompetent and almost nonexistent! A film that is supposed to generate some excitement but acts like a drama than as a thriller. Pretentious with plenty of loopholes, also starring is Oscar Award winner William Hurt as an corrupted ex-cop whose acting talents is totally wasted !

It was a good thriller. There were some pretty intense scenes.
How to waste a great cast.
