Physical Evidence (1989)

An American crime drama directed by Michael Crichton, starring Burt Reynolds, Theresa Russell and Ned Beatty.
A ex-cop is accused of murder and a young female public defender takes his case. They work together against all odds to find the real killer.
This was so stereotypical. The characters were exactly what you would use if you were making a film to mock late '80s courtroom flicks and the plot was no better. The ending was extremely inconclusive. Style reeked of 1989, with big shoulder pad suit jackets for the female lead and a big reel-to-reel tape recorder for the male. There was nothing interesting to note on camera-work or editing. Overall, it's very mediocre and should only be watched for 1980s nostalgia purposes. I rate it poor.
