Quotes

Rudolph W. Giuliani: [first lines - fade in] ... is not by any means the full sum and total of the FBI and the police department's efforts here. As has been outlined before, a couple of hundred mafia and organized crime members and associates have been indicted in the last year to two years, so that the attack is at the top level, the middle level, and the lower level. And we are doing everything that we can to identify, indict and convict, uh, the capos, the soldiers, and the associates of the mafia as well.

Surprisingly good
20 March 2006 | by gillygallsSee all my reviews

The movie had a really great script; it was funny, dramatic and touching. I was really surprised by Vin Diesel's performance, I wasn't expecting him to pull it off. I think Jackie D himself, his personality and his words helped Vin a lot there. I was also impressed by Raúl Esparza as Tony. I've seen him on Broadway and I have been wowed by his stage performances. I wasn't sure if he could make the transition, but he was the perfect paranoid junkie. The only problems I had with the movie are with tiny details like extras dressed in 2006 fashions and flat screen monitors on desks. Knowing that the trial began in the early 90's, it caught my attention and stuff like the computer monitors shouldn't grab attention. Overall, "Find Me Guilty" is a great movie, and I highly recommend it.
