Court Marshall drama with Ashley Judd as a civilian lawyer, butting into military matters when her chameleon husband is charged for the murder of nine indigenous women and children.Ripe with twists and turns — the typical plot machinations for a military conspiracy movie — we have a number of prime cover-up or infiltration suspects, as well as doubt cast upon the defendant. But with each turn of a corner, there is an omniscient attitude of who cares?. While Carl Franklin is working in overtime to eke out convolution after convolution, his faceless direction plows along like any first-time studio helmer. Rather, it places him back in the company of his earlier work (Nowhere to Run, Punks), proving decent turns such as Devil in a Blue Dress and One True Thing to be quite aberrant.
With Morgan Freeman, Jim Caviezel, Amanda Peet and Adam Scott.[Not to be bothered with.]
