Primal Fear Online Movie Trailer
In the late 1990s, popularity was acquired by films that explicitly mock the justice system, which, with the help of corrupt judges, egocentric lawyers and mismanagement of the investigative process, manages to make mistakes that cause laughter and unbelief. This project was directly produced as a product of the famous trial of the famous player of American football OJ Simpson, who, in the opinion of the vast majority, was unjustly released.
The main protagonist of the film is Martin Wale, a famous egocentric lawyer specializing in the defense of serious cases such as killers and mobsters. After the scandalous assassination of Chicago Archbishop Raserman, a well-known philanthropist and powerful man, his assistant Aron Stampler was arrested, who was found all bloody not far from the site of the murder. Martina attracts the popularity of this event and Aaron's innocent, childish appearance, and takes over the case. His former colleague and mistress Zanet is being opposed as a state prosecutor, which was sent by several powerful men who were reprimanded by the deceased archbishop.
This court thriller has the relationship between the image of a man who is shown to the world and images kept solely for himself. Lawyer Martin, on the other hand, balances skillfully between the egocentric, charismatic cinematic and the naive idealist with almost parental instincts. Usually, through court trials, the topic of legal ethics is provoked and it is surprising that it does not touch at all here, so characters are poorly characterized and they are presented as cold-blooded people with no sense of right. Gregory Hoblit, director of the film, brought together a great team of actors, but the expected quality was out of the question. There is an impression that he made another episode of his criminal TV series, not a feature film. The scenario has a hole, leaves out the events that are mentioned in the notes and which might attract attention, and some are quite uninteresting and relatively unnecessary inserted. When everything is summed up and subtracted, a film that promises much is getting, but it gradually turns into an awkward and awkward episode of the serial film, which has a surprisingly great breakup.
The role of the lawyer was greatly sparked by Richard Gere, who is backed by standard Laura Linney and episodists Frenses MsDormand and John Mahoney. However, the strongest impression is left by the young talent then, and today one of the most popular actors Edward Norton, who topped out the very demanding role of epileptic, neurotic Aaron and deservedly won the Oscar nomination.
This film does not offer anything spectacularly new. If you are a fan of criminal thrillers, this is the right choice for you, while on the other hand, the average viewer can remain unfulfilled due to the relatively boring and unnecessarily stretched parts of the film. In any case, I recommend it primarily because of Maestral Edward Norton, one of my favorite actors.
