Good Courtroom Drama

Ramsey (Keanu Reeves) defends his teen age client, Mike (Gabriel Basso), who is accused of killing his father Boone Lassiter (Jim Belushi). The problem is that Mike has confessed to killing his father, but won't confide in his lawyer. Oh, oh, this can't be good. This one will keep you guessing trying to figure out who is lying and Ramsey believes everyone lies. He takes on Janelle (Gugu Mbatha- Raw) a lawyer who is known for her bullshit monitor – she can tell who is lying. So we go round and round trying to figure this all out. Is Mike, the son, protecting his mother Loretta (Rene Zellweger) or is she protecting him? Or is it something else? Inquiring minds want to know. It's really good courtroom drama, but we just cannot come to a conclusion. Can you?. Near the end Janelle comes to a conclusion. Will your conclusion be the same or is she wrong? Hmmm……… There is good suspense and the acting is very good all around. Will your conclusion change when Mike does take the stand and talks? Hmmm……... Is there a twist you ask? Of course there is and it will shock you. There is suspense, but no real tension. But wait, wait, that tension comes at the very last scene, but then everything fades to black. Sorry. It's over. But now you know. ('bout time) (7/10) Violence: Yes. Sex: Kind of as seen from a distance by a neighbor. Nudity: No. Language: No.

Bad Writing, Bad Directing, Bad Acting

Just wasted more than an hour of my life watching trash. Kept hoping there would be something to redeem what began with a scene that never would occur in a trial; but it just got worse. I can't say that the plot was not interesting, because the writing and the acting were so bad, I really didn't notice that there was no plot, just an ending that the writer attached a beginning and middle to in order to have a screenplay. The one credible actor was the assistant to the defense attorney, and she disappeared at a time when she could have saved the ending. Worse than bad, this movie never should have seen the light of day.

The Whole Dud

The Whole Truth: Directed by Courtney Hunt and written by Nicolas Kazan using a pseudonym Rafael Jackson. Keanu Reeves as a defense lawyer defending a teenager who killed his father and confessed to the crime. He also refuses to talk to his attorney. This makes his job almost impossible. This movie is intentionally deceiving in a lot of ways. The mystery of what actually happened is the entire crux of the movie and it was flimsy to say the least. You know right from the very beginning that the boy didn't kill his dad. You get the sense that the kid is clearly protecting his mom. His mom is supposed to have been in this horrific abusive long relationship with Jim Belushi's character. It doesn't feel like it though. Renee Zellweger, an Oscar winner for Cold Mountain is just lifeless in this movie. Keanu Reeves has more personality than she does. We all know how limited he is. He's fine in this movie. He also is holding onto a secret. This movie really hinges on this mystery. It tries to confuse you with different points of view as for how things happened. It doesn't necessarily walk into Rashomon territory but it runs close. It just does not work and the twist comes out of nowhere and doesn't begin to redeem this very lifeless movie. I give this movie a D.
