    Your Opinions and Comments

    8 / 10
    A good thriller with a nice cast.
    Judd and Freeman do a great job in portraying two lawyers who try to defend a framed soldier.
    The video transfer is good. There are no compression signs and the colors are very nicely saturated.
    The DD 5.1 soundtrack is good as well. The surrounds are used occasionally and give a nice enveloping sound.
    The menus are animated with sound.
    The extras include a commentary by the director and a detailed behind the scenes featurette (divided into several parts).
    Bottom line - a good and thrilling movie with a great cast.
