(Review originally written at 22 March 2004)

A good court drama/thriller with all the typical cliches but also some original moments and a good ending.

Courtroom movies aren't known to be exciting and "Presumed Innocent" can't be called exciting either but still it is above average mainly thanks to some good storytelling and directing. Only problem is that it at times tries to be more than a court drama, which does not always work successfully.

Harrison Ford seemed to feel comfortable in his role, my only problem with him was his weird hair cut. Raul Julia was absolutely fantastic in his role and made the movie so much more interesting to me.

A nice movie to watch but you have to be in the right mood for it.
