About the Movie
He's a boozer, a skirt chaser, a careless father. You could create your own list of veteran reporter Steve Everett's faults, but right now there isn't time. At San Quentin, a Death Row prisoner is scheduled to die at midnight - a man Everett has suddenly realized is innocent. In his 21st film as director and 41st as star, Clint Eastwood memorably plays Everett in True Crime, a savvy beat-the-clock thriller that "brims with more life than a single review can describe" (Henry Sheehan, Knight-Ridder Newspapers). Isaiah Washington, Denis Leary, Lisa Gay Hamilton, James Woods, Diane Venora and others in a razor-sharp ensemble populate this suspense tale that tightens to nerve-frying intensity intercutting the parallel stories of the inmate and Everett's scramble to save him ... and perhaps lift his own life out of the trash heap along the way. Everett is harried, determined and trying not to self-destruct as he probes the circumstances of a long-ago murder. And the clock is ticking.

Rotten: It's all wrong; Eastwood is even miscast.
Worst movie ever made
This movie is by far the worst film i have ever seen i mean aside from Clint Eastwood putting no effort into his role and the fact the the whole story line was slapstick a been there done that kind of film just watch Absolute Power or In the Line of Fire it gives you a better grip on the movie itself but this is just like A Time to Kill or The Chamber only a thousand times worse
Formulaic, predictable, cliched..... only Clint's acting holds it together, if you could call this film 'together' at all.......
I loved this movie. All the way to the end I wasn’t sure he would get the story. The music, as usual for Eastwood was great - the end song by Diana Krall was worth every penny to rent it. The cast was very well selected. Diane Venora and the mother were great. Denis Leary sort of played to type ~ I imagine he’s like that to every one. I’d pay good money to watch James Woods brush his teeth and Isaiah Washington delivered an outstanding performance, as usual.
