Nice ordinary legal drama
23 September 2007 | by grapevinedeluxeSee all my reviews

Made in Canada according to the DVD jacket, although it also says the DVD creation was done by John Matarazzo and Logan Strand at Stone River Studios, Saddle River Valley, NY.

The DVD jacket says, The rising star at a high profile law firm is asked by the woman he loves to defend her best friend who is charged with a vicious murder which she says she didn't commit. He agrees to defend her and the intrigue begins.

This is a decent enough movie as far as the plot and the acting goes; Chad's character is mentored by the always watchable and affable David Craig; however, the lighting and picture quality was not well done in the transfer to DVD, and the sound was horrendous. The background street noises, bar scenes and other music completely overwhelmed the dialogue and when it wasn't, there was still a most annoying scratchy old-record white noise. Only extreme stubbornness and a long-running appreciation of Chad Everett's many charms, along with a faint hope that improvement was imminent, kept me hanging in till the bitter end. Do yourself a favor and wait for this to show up on TV - maybe write a note to TVLand about airing some of the good old made for TV movies.
