I am not giving this film five stars for any visual genius in the film, special effects or high profile cast because it has none of these things.

My five stars are based on the fact that this story conveys just how corrupt the justice system can be when you encounter corrupt individuals within it - the fact that this is based on a true story makes it all the more heart felt - and reminds us to consider what other may have been through or are possibly going through within the system now.

Granted, if the guy in the film never took the job cleaning guns - and kept away from his past ex-con friend then they would probably never got into the mess they landed in - but all the same - innocent people suffered and died due to a lack of honesty and morale in others.

The film also throws up the age old debate around whether the death penalty should still exist - particularly from the angle that individuals within the justice system can not necessarily be relied on to be honest and just in their related roles leading to a conviction, resulting in wrong convictions and deaths.

This film was enjoyable and brings home the danger of convicting someone to the death penalty then discovering that the person was innocent after the death penalty had been carried out.
All the actors in this perform brilliantly.

Good telling of a true story 18 July 2013
By rjl6955 - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Moving (and true) story of the efforts to free an innocent woman and reverse a travesty of justice. The cast is a mix of either names that were household names when the movie was made, or were up-and-coming actors who are household names now.

DVD arrived in Excellent Condition, Perfect, Like New. THANKS. I was friends with Sunny & Jesse. He was at my home the night of the killings, before picking up Sunny, so she didnit know this. I gave Jesse $50.00 for a Motel Room. If Rhodes hadn,t pushed them to leave that night things might have been different. But Hindsight is Perfect. Jesse was INNOCENT, I know this for a fact & can prove it. I would have liked to see more about him and his life, but it was Sunnys' story and a good one. JUSTICE was not DONE. That was the real Problem.
Suspenseful film 22 April 2015
By douglas van antwerp - Published on

An excellent film, suspenseful & well acted.
It's based on a true story and really holds your interest, especially if you like court trials. I couldn't stop watching it.
It shows the value of a close friendship and how one woman goes all out to support the other.
A movie well worth seeing. I'd rate it at 4 1/2 stars.

Under oath: Corruption, lies, twisted deals, fake witnesses 26 Mar. 2011
By Cynthia I. Martinez - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This movie is based on a TRUE event about a woman and her husband/lover who find themselves entangled in the corrupt legal system, landing both on DEATH ROW, after they agree to accept a ride back to their home-state from the husband/lover's EX-CON "friend."

"In the Blink of an Eye," 2 officers end-up "shot to death" and the "victims" (the woman & husband/lover), end up with GUILTY verdicts, instead of the "supposedly" EX-CON driver.

15 years later, the imprisoned woman's childhood best friend reunites with her friend and is compelled to FIGHT THE SYSTEM and OVERTURN the verdict during the course of her LAST CHANCE APPEAL. Her friend conducts her OWN investigation in collaboration with her friend's lawyers.

It is a FAST-PACED movie. The acting is not the best at all - although the storyline would have had GREATER potential. (I will RESERVE my personal opinion/thoughts about the characters - esp. the "victims" from this review, as I cannot decipher if it's due to the "bad acting" or "sloppy" script).

However, this movie reveals the "corrupt legal system," the "lies" and "twists" that actually occur in courtrooms, along with the legal "deals" that are cut-out for "alleged witnesses" that send the innocent to prison and reduce sentences for the guilty and/or fake "witnesses."

This movie emphasizes more on "THE LEGAL SYSTEM" and NOT "PRISON LIFE." So, you do NOT see "WOMEN IN PRISON LIFE" (raping, cussing, fighting, stabbing women, lunch-stealing women, etc). On the contrary, because the focus is NOT in "PRISON LIFE," this movie does not give you the slightest-chance to see PRISON as a "BAD place."

As mentioned before, it IS a very fast-paced movie. So, you're not eternally "grounded" in a courtroom OR "grounded" in prison. It moves rather quickly. It's NOT suspenseful or gripping, but just a historical story of a TRUE event.

I would have given this movie 2 stars because of the bad acting and a sloppy script (in my opinion) but the story-line's undeveloped GREATER potential is why I gave it a 3-star rating.
