Surprisingly, his exuberant behavior impresses his superiors, and Robin soon finds himself promoted to junior partner. However, when he is assigned to a high-profile rape-murder case, he is forced to reexamine not only his ethics, but also his career decision as he grows to suspect his own client's guilt.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: I don't know much about the law, but I know enough to assure you that "From the Hip" is completely implausible from beginning to end.
Still good after all this time
Truth be told, I had forgotten about this movie until I found it here on itunes. It is a fun, well crafted movie with a great cast. It has a few holes in it and I am sure whatever the suits made them leave on the cutting room floor back then would've been worth watching. Nelson is his usual solid self, Perkins is adorable with a wonderful supporting cast around them and John Hurt is menacing, scary and a blast. This is a fun movie - buy it!
