Rating: 0/5 -- Ridiculous from start to finish. Connery, Harris, and Fishburne couldn't have wasted their time in a less productive fashion.
Rating: 3/4 -- In Connery it has a hero who is inescapably appealing. Full Review
San Francisco Chronicle
Rating: 2/4 -- There is no psychological depth, no real motivation, no human values to weigh, just characters jerked here and there like puppets in an arbitrary plot. Full Review
Despite its merits, the script fails to escape the silly season that fouls up so many thrillers, that time when the twists merely seem like the narrative equivalents of those violin shrieks on a cheesy score. Full Review
Globe and Mail
Rating: 2/5 -- Forgettable and less than thrilling.
Rating: 2/5 -- It doesn't bog down in the bogs, but it's slow-moving just about everyplace else. Full Review
Los Angeles Times
Connery is sadly lacking in vigour, and the script rarely sparkles. But the climax is cruelly effective. Full Review
Independent on Sunday
A Harvard law professor takes up the case of a southern black man on death row for murdering a white woman, a crime he may not have committed. Discovering the truth proves difficult, as a Bible-spouting inmate and the brutal police officer who convicted the condemned man lead the professor down blind alleys and into treacherous waters.
Harvard law professor Paul Armstrong travels to the Florida Everglades in order to overturn the death sentence of a man he believes was wrongly convicted. He soon finds, though, that his years in academia have softened him to the real world, where he tangles with the cop who first handled the case and who may have coerced the defendant's confession. As Armstrong closes in on the truth he also endangers his life.
