Great movie, but I anticipated the ending.

Unfortunately, I ordered bluray in error would not play on my standard Sony DVD player. This is totally useless.

Fortunately, I was able to obtain a copy of 'High Crimes' elsewhere.
THIS version was excellent.

Must be more vigilant when ordering DVDs.

Claire Kubik (Ashley Judd) is a high priced defense attorney who is near becoming a partner. Her husband (Jim Caviezel) is accused of mass military killing in El Salvador while a Marine several years ago. Claire enlists the help of Charles Grimes (Morgan Freeman) a former military lawyer who likes the bottle.

It is an interesting film, even though it is a bit dated. The film is advertised as having a twist, which meant I knew the ending, just not how we get there. Good performances.

Guide: No swearing or nudity. Implied sex. Amanda Peet eye candy.

High Crimes is a drama, centered around the efforts of San Francisco based lawyer Claire Kubik (Ashley Judd) to vindicate her ex-marine husband Tom (James Caviezel), who is charged with the murder of some villagers, while on a mission in El Salvador, twelve years previous. Husband Tom, (real name Ron) was a member of a small unit, sent to ferret out a terrorist. Though what actually happened is in dispute, the end result was nine dead civilians killed by Marine fire.
Charged with "high crimes", Tom is held for trial in a USMC base in San Lazaro, CA. His appointed counsel is green Marine lawyer, Lt. Embry (Adam Scott). Claire joins the defense team, but seeks someone with expertise in military procedures to bolster the team. Enter "wild card" Charlie Grimes, (Morgan Freeman) a civilian lawyer with past JAG experience. Together, along with Claire's sister, Jackie (Amanda Peet), the defense team works to uncover the "truth".
Freeman and Judd star in their second film together, having first worked together in 1998's "Kiss the Girls". And indeed, it is the interplay between the two that creates most of the interest in the story. However, this alone is not enough, and the illogical plot twists added to create excitement and maintain interest, produce a rather formulamatic tale, that ultimately leaves one disappointed. Freeman's performance is steady, but not special. Judd does an excellent job displaying a wide range of emotions. Yet neither can overcome the weakness of the story.
Director Carl Franklin's commentary track, provides a wealth of trivia, and too often he tends to speak of his other films and filmmaking in general rather than comment specifically on what we are seeing.
High Crimes is a film that is OK to see once. If the ending disappoints you, you probably won't give it a second viewing.
