Presumed Innocent

Presumed InnocentBBB.5

(out of 5)


 plays a well-respected prosecutor (with a geeky buzz cut) whose girlfriend () is viciously murdered shortly after he has seen her. The fact that he already has a wife () spells very bad trouble for him, and he immediately becomes the prime suspect in the case.  is excellent as the lawyer who defends Ford, though our hero has no expectations of letting regular justice do the job of clearing his name. He instead goes on the hunt for the killer using what little information he has about her demise. The result isn’t too difficult to spot, but this film has enough distractions to keep you interested, and director Alan J. Pakula mixes Fatal Attraction with The Verdict for a mature, intelligent and totally trashy experience.
