Just Cause (1995) (C)
"Gripping, explosive. A classic thriller with a knockout finish."
Bill Diehl, ABC Radio Network.
Buried deep in the Florida Everglades is a secret that can save an innocent man or let a killer kill again.
Some thrillers make the mind race. Some keep the heart hammering. Just Cause does both so powerfully it has been called "the best thriller since The Silence of the Lambs" (Susan Granger, CRN/American Movie Classics).
Sean Connery plays a Harvard law professor who re-opens a murder investigation based on an allegation that a confession was coerced by a maverick lawman (Laurence Fishburne).
On the surface, this seems like a straight-ahead case of the prisoner's guilt or innocence, but nothing really lies on the surface of this mystery - that climaxes in the Florida swamplands.
Expect the unexpected. And also expect "a riveting, action packed thriller... brimming with suspense." (Neil Rosen, NY-1News) -- (C) Warner Bros, 1995, USA.
