Critic Reviews for Criminal Law
Criminal Law is a textbook example of a movie going wrong before our very eyes, because of the curious failure of the filmmakers to realize that you can toy with an audience only so long before the audience grows resentful.
The pretentious psychological thriller has nothing worth saying about the American criminal justice system.
Oldman's good, and Bacon's bad? Yeah, you know you want to see that
Audience Reviews for Criminal Law
I was expecting alot more for a film that featured both Gary Oldman and Kevin Bacon. They both did a great job in their roles - Gary as a defense atty. who manages to get his client (Bacon) acquitted of murder; and then finds out his client is guilty. Bacon is great at doing creepy. I just thought the story was long and tedious in some places and quite predictable.
Gary Oldman as a good guy!
Gary Oldman gives a strong performance in this suspense-thriller as an attorney who successfully defends accused killer Kevin Bacon. At first, the film bristles with tension and intelligence, yet it goes on to become predictable and ludicrous.
