Rating: 3/5 -- This thriller-by-numbers fails to add anything fresh to an already exhausted genre. Full Review

Rating: C- -- Comes off more like a misdemeanor, a flat, unconvincing drama that never catches fire.

In a movie like this, if you're not surprised, if you know what's going to happen and you can figure out everything then it ultimately falls flat and that's why it doesn't work for me.

Rating: C -- Hampered by a bad script, this is a middling political thriler that's not supsenseful or dramatic enough to generate any interest in the proceedings; the good Morgan Freeman is totally wasted. Full Review

If Hollywood ever totally collapses, films like High Crimes will be the reason why. Full Review

Carl Franklin directs smoothly, but except for Freeman, the theatrics are pretty pro forma.

Rating: 1.5/4 -- This is the work of a director who seems to have been as bored and uninspired making this movie as I was watching it. Full Review

Product Description:

Based on the novel by Joseph Finder, HIGH CRIMES is an engaging courtroom thriller that features standout lead performances by Ashley Judd and Morgan Freeman. Judd is Claire Kubik, or is she' A successful defense attorney with a seemingly perfect life, Claire is shocked to discover that her husband, Tom (Jim Caviezal), has been arrested by the United States Marine Corps for slaughtering innocent civilians in El Salvador many years before. Not knowing who to believe, Claire eventually accepts her husband's pleas of innocence and sets out to defend him. With the help of wild-card ex-Marine lawyer Charlie Grimes (Freeman) and wet-behind-the-ears Lt. Terrence Embry (Adam Scott), Claire attempts to set the record straight once and for all. But as she uncovers new information that reveals a cover up even she could never have imagined, the stakes are raised, threatening her own life in the process. Acclaimed director Carl Franklin (ONE FALSE MOVE, DEVIL IN A BLUE DRESS) embraces his material like a true professional, employing tension-mounting camera movements and clever flashback sequences to turn a potentially standard, by-the-books courtroom drama into an entertaining thriller. Playing another self-reliant, tough character, Judd proves she is one of Hollywood's most dependable stars.
