Just Cause

A mighty taut and fine suspense thriller this is. Premise is simple, young man is wrongly accused and sentenced to death for murder, retired from active practice law professor has to come and save the day while dealing with racist thugs. When you have Sean Connery as said lawyer and Laurence Fishburne as one of the thugs you just know things are going to be combustible. Ed Harris gets his psycho on as a serial killer inmate, Scarlett Johansson shows up in her second feature, and Blair Underwood and Kate Capshaw provide excellent support. Not much I can say about the story without ruining the plot for you but I assure the scripting and dialogue are top drawer. Look for some fine cameos from Ned Beatty and Ruby Dee and even Kevin McCarthy comes out for a little visit. For sure...time well spent!
