Mitch Brockton (Domenic Cooper) is rising star in the DA department. He never loses. But a bad choice one night finds him driving home after a party when he hit a pedestrian, calls 911 anonymously from a pay phone and heads home to avoid ruining his career. But much to his dismay, he is assigned to prosecute Clinton Davis (Samuel L Jackson) who has been charged with the crime. His conscience is in for a stormy week or two.
This is an interesting concept that has a lot of promise. Imagine being called on to prosecute a man for the crime you committed. But he is just beginning to scratch the surface of what happened that night. This could have been a much better film, however, than it was. It was pretty straight forward without much in the way of twists and turns. Everything that happened was pretty obvious. It wasn’t an awful film, and had some rather interesting parts, but for the most part it was a bit hum-drum and just predictable. There were no outstanding performances here, and even Samuel L Jackson was not near as good as he usually is. Basically I suspect they just did not have the best script and enough budget to completely pull this off. But it’s not a bad way to pass the time. It’s available for streaming, and if you like court dramas, this is a decent way to spend 90 minutes or so. Just be aware that it’s not outstanding in the genre.
