The Trial DVD Review

The Trial DVD Review



Synopsis: THE TRIAL follows small-town attorney Kent “Mac” McClain (Matthew Modine; Full Metal Jacket, Any Given Sunday), who is left devastated and purposeless by the horrific death of his wife and two sons in a tragic accident. After concluding that suicide is his only escape, McClain agrees to take on one final case. Defending accused murderer Peter Thomason (Randy Wayne; To Save a Life) against capital punishment, McClain begins the trial that transforms his life and the lives of those around him forever.

Review: You know, for some reason here at the Legion we’re addicted to mysteries and courtroom drama.  I don’t know why, because it usually ends up the same, but then films like Runaway Jury really get me going.  That is why I popped in the Trial to begin with.  A tortured lawyer loses his family and in his grief wants to end his own life, but agrees to do one last trial.  This trial, of course, changes everything.

I found this film to be a great time.  Sure, there are predictable moments and outcomes at times, but the mystery is great and the courtroom drama is fantastic.  It’s a great life affirming film and most definitely is one to watch.
