When director Gregory Hoblit was shooting this film, did he ever wonder how preposterous this courtroom mystery is?
This ridiculous effort featuring a tired Anthony Hopkins as a suspect representing himself, and a very green Ryan Gosling as the prosecuting attorney proudly boasts a centerpiece storyline of simply finding a gun used in an attempted murder. That’s it really. No nuances. No subtle riddles. Just a “what happened to the gun?” plot line.
It’s any wonder that I had never heard of this movie until I found it on Netflix.
Take my advice. Find something else on Netflix.
