Nearing the end, I was ready to give this uncommonly high marks for its moral ambiguity and awesome, taught story and direction. Then 10 minutes to the end, Agatha Christie comes and saves the day for the pat Hollywood finish. Honestly, if the last two scenes were excised (leaving in the typical Pakula framing device), this would be a modern classic.

I liked this fine as a courtroom drama, but the twist ending felt overdone and overly concise.

Pretty well constructed crime film, the second half is stronger than the first, once the lengthy intros are done and the real intrigue starts to unfold.

As compelling a thriller as one comes to expect from Pakula, natural if emotionally distant, teasing several different possible truths, shaded by the dual torments of miscarried justice and private remorse. Fantastic performances. This could have been something truly special, but the rug-pull finale is so far-fetched that it actually undermines much of the preceding, and perhaps cements a streak of misogyny, wherein the true victims are all these poor men who are strung along by deceitful women.

The patient zero of twist'y nineties crime/courtroom thrillers, with a show stealing performance from Julia, but probably not a movie in which you should think too hard about the female characters' roles, if you don't like sour tastes...

Really nothing special. A typical early 90s courtroom drama (one of many) with an added twist that was explained like a cartoon supervillian would do. Ford doesn't play his normal, charming self, which is nice to see.

The setup wasn't bad but it really picked up in the second half, especially when the former DA turns on Ford. The trial scenes weren't as bad as other films, though it was weird to have the jury sit in on everything. I liked the sassy judge and Raul Julia was amazing as the deliberate defense attorney. The final 10 minutes could have been cut. Fav scenes: first interaction with the coroner ("read the fucking report") and the first major argument when the judge really gets it.

Presumed Innocent is a great crime drama. The cast of the movie is fantastic, even the character actors are rich and memorable. There are some really great moments too in the movie. The first scene with the coroner is pretty funny. There are some twists that really push this movie ahead of the competition. I'm not sure how I feel about the ending. It's good but part of me thinks they could have handled it in a different way. I could see myself watching it again.

Decent courtroom thriller with a bit of a predictable twist at the ending which Im sure worked much better in a book.

Good. Great cast. Raul Julia especially shines here, and Paul Winfield stood out too.

finale kalan açıklama gerekliliği olmasaydı ve hikaye bu şekilde şekil değiştirmeseydi kurgusal atlamalar ve ilk yarıdaki zikzaklara rağmen çok özel bir film olarak niteleyecektim. saatin etkisiyle gelen uykum sebebiyle son 5-6 dakikada filmi kapatmalıymışım gerçekten.

Gripping enough courtroom mystery. Everyone is quite plugged in here which is good and it's an absolute joy to see Raul Julia in action. As others have said it drops the ball with an overdone explanation when it could have been a much more memorable piece of ambiguity.

W3E1P1S1V1M1A1R1. Not erotic enough to be a Michael Douglas film, complex enough to match something like Primal Fear, or personal enough to match The Verdict. Just a workmanlike true crime thriller that actually does a pretty good job on the legal side of things, and winds up a tad dull.

The whole film feels rather drab and lifeless. Harrison Ford doesn't seem right for the role. The story is rather bland, and while Raul Julia is entertaining, most of the cast is forgettable.

I liked this courtroom drama/mystery. I watched it for the first time on my netflix instant queue. Good story, Harrison Ford gives one of his non Harrison Ford performances. The surprise ending I guess caught me off guard, probably because I wasn't expecting it, though I thought it might have been better if ******* was the killer. I recommend a viewing.

Suggeted tagline: Harrison Ford is Presumed Innocent, Greta Schacci is Presumed Office Whore, Raul Julia is Presumed Half-Baked Attorney and Brian Dennehy is Presumed Bacon Addict.
