Low budget, occasionally plodding courtroom based thriller
22 September 2001 | by artbyjudeSee all my reviews

This movie centers around a Prosecuting attorney and her need to find and jail a psychopathic killer, who has a special thing for young beautiful law students. The good part is the ending. The bad part is just about everything else.

On one side, it shows the court system, and how easy it is for the guilty to escape under the right conditions. On the other, it shows that the prosecuting team have other tricks up their sleeve.

I don't think the ends justify the means, however, and the ultimate message is not a good one. Besides, there is very little action, not the best acting, and an unusually pedantic and dialog going on. There are better examples of this genre almost everywhere. My advice is to skip it.
