High Crimes (2002) - (Movies To See Before You Die - Court Room Drama)

25 Jan, 2009 | Movies To See Before You Die / Court Room

There is a tag line to this movie, which goes, “Everything you trust. Everything you know. May be a lie.” And while watching the movie you can feel this cunning and disturbing punch line playing with the lives of the characters on the screen. It’s a well written script with suspense, thrill and court room revelations, brilliantly blended together.

The movie turned me into a bigger fan of Morgan Freeman, a complete actor in the true sense. Here he is playing a looser lawyer, hired by a lady (who is a high powered lawyer herself) to fight the case for her husband who was suddenly arrested with mass murder charges on him. As the person arrested was in military before so the case becomes a high profile one involving the higher officials and military justice system into it. As the film moves on, more surprising layers unfold and you watch each new development on the screen with eyes wide open. There are completely unexpected twists and turns towards the climax to blow your mind out. In few words its one of the best thrillers and an involving court room drama to enjoy.
Directed By Carl Franklin
