Film Review

Pure revenge film all the way is this drama from the pen of Larry Brothers which tried to be a serious movie about the prevailing of justice when "An Innocent Man" (Tom Selleck) is framed by a pair of corrupt narcotics detectives.Peter Yates never stood a chance of making this a film with a message due to its obvious direction, conclusion and its total lack of life's ever present ambiguities. Tom Selleck's character is just too pure and righteous, and his loving wife is far too good for words, while the bad guys are just so, so bad it's annoying. F. Murray Abraham is probably the only slightly believable, and enjoyable, character, as he doesn't mind helping out a friend, yet we know he has a dark past. An agreeable showing from the one time Academy Award winner.This is the only highlight though in what is essentially a two dimensional movie lacking completely in originality. Howard Shore's surprisingly below par score is also a let down. Recommended just …

The film opens with sequences conceived to present Selleck as a loving husband and a devoted airlines maintenance supervisor… His name is Jimmie Rainwood… One night, a couple of crooked narcotics cops break down Rainwood’s peaceful door…Jimmy—who had just taken a shower—comes out with a hair dryer in his hand… He is shot twice by the anti-drugs cops who have caught a shadow of what looks like a gun… So to justify their error, they concocted an entire fairy tale planting drugs in Jimmy’s home and a gun in his hand…Rainwood ends up in jail…Luckily, he is befriended by Virgil Cane, played by F. Murray Abraham… Cane was the character to keep your eye on… He is a ‘schemer and a charmer.’ Virgil disagrees with Jimmy’s sensitiveness as a straight man… This is an ‘insane place with insane rules’ that tests the human consciousness, yet survival will never be the same without some sort of sacrifice… A group of degenerate prisoners ma…

Here is a good old-fashioned story about a man accused of murder, all because two cops (actually, one of the two cops) don't want to admit their mistake of picking the wrong house. Tom Selleck is ideal to play the innocent man. For some strange reason, I expected not to like it. But I was pleasantly surprised. In fact it's a movie worth buying. Even if the DVD is out of print (and I'm not saying for sure it is), it nevertheless is a movie worth keeping. The movie is simple and straightforward, it doesn't condescend to the viewer, and has decent acting. It's not as dark in tone like most prison movies, however.*** out of ****
