Review - True Crime
Ridiculous. Eastwood's character has no basis for his belief that Frank is innocent except that a potato chip rack used to be on the counter in the store where the woman was shot. This convinces him that the chief witness could not possibly have seen if Frank had a gun or not. Eastwood's character is totally unlikable, as was pretty much everyone else in the movie, and he acted like he didn't like the character himself. There were some other ridiculous bits — like a bomb squad searching the prison parking lot for a green crayon lost by Frank's daughter and a "maneuver" that Frank made in his car to evade the police which consisted of doing a donut that made the police cars skid to a stop but didn't explain why they couldn't start up again. The race to get to the governor before the execution was without drama since I had no doubt whatsoever that he would make it.
