Apart from Assante and the random effective bit player -- notably Frederick Downs, a Veterans Administration official who plays the first murder victim, Jack Williams -- the level of acting tends to be perilously amateurish. Full Review
...Swift, suitably enigmatic....Hard as nails, with Armand Assante plausibly macho and ruggedly sexy...
Rating: 1.5/4 -- The central fault in this updating is Mike Hammer, whose character was lost in the shuffle while updating from the fifties to the eighties. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- I, the Jury is a violent private eye thriller, with a certain redeeming sense of style. Full Review
The film soon becomes repetitious, lacking the overall atmosphere of paranoia that makes Spillane's fictions bearable. Full Review
The souped-up remake is hard as nails, with Armand Assante plausibly macho and ruggedly sexy as the amoral private eye who avenges the murder of his old Vietnam war buddy. Full Review
...Careers by at a fast and cheeky pace....[Assante is] irresistible...
