Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: There isn't a whole lot to the movie.
Rotten: Lacking the surface glitz, attention-grabbing plot and star power of John Grisham's previous adaptations, Folley's film will also suffer due to comparisons with the similarly-themed and better Tim Robbins' Dead Man Walking, released last year.
