I'm not particularly easy to please when it comes to films, and not a particular Sean Connery fan, but I enjoyed this film. It's a murder mystery with a couple of fairly original twists. I read one review which said if you watch it again you start to see all the holes in the plot, but surely if you need a second viewing to find faults, they can't be all that serious.
Having said all that, although it was entertaining, I doubt I would get any more enjoyment out of watching it again, so I'll probably never get to find those plot holes.

Just Cause is one of those films that at first makes you wonder quite why it was so heavily slated when it came out - nothing special but competent enough and with an excellent supporting performance from Ed Harris. Then you hit the last third and everything starts to get increasingly silly until you've got a killer with a flashlight strapped to his forehead threatening to fillet Sean Connery's wife (a typically mannered and unconvincing Kate Capshaw) and kid (a very young Scarlet Johannsen) in an alligator skinner's shack. The kind of movie that's probably best seen on a plane, and even then only once.

Format: DVD
I'm afraid - for I'm a fan of Sean Connery - that this film is disappointingly shallow. There's very little character development, and I certainly found I cared very little what happened to Mr Connery's character, or any of the rest. There is an unpleasant execution scene, which seemed gratuitous, and there appears to be some sort of political agenda poking through.
The plot is clumsy, with lots of "unexpected" twists. When everything is set up for a happy ending and all the loose ends tied up, but only 45 minutes into the film, it's not difficult to predict a major upset on the way.
The film manages to project some of the run-down, seedy ordinariness of small-town Florida, but that's not much of a consolation.
And there are no extras worth mentioning on the DVD. Avoid.

Bobby Earl is facing the electric chair for the murder of a young girl.

Eight years after the crime he calls in Paul Armstrong, a professor of law, to help prove his innocence.

Armstrong quickly uncovers some overlooked evidence to present to the local police, but they aren't interested - Bobby was their killer......

Its strange to think that Connery had very few films left in him when this was released, there were a few prolific ones, The Rock, LXG, Entrapment, but it's really strange that he decided to this, because he doesn't really add anything to the film.

Its Fishbourne, and a brilliant Harris, that make this film standout, and compared to them, Connery is left in the stands watching the world go by,which is a shame, because he's usually a wonderful screen presence.

The plot reminds one of those slow burning Bayou thrillers of old, everyone's sweating, wiping their faces, and hiding secrets from one another.

But for the most part, its Connery approaching different characters, asking for his motivation, and then ringing up Kate Capshaw to have an argument.

The final third involves a car chase, crocodiles, and Scarlett Johanssen, but by the time the big twist is revealed, you feel cheated because its basically turned the twist onto a 360, if you would.

Watchable, but pointless, Harris is wonderful...

A nice tense opening, promising a powerful conflict drama in the Deep South, descends into a grotesquely ludicrous plot, with twists and turns and 'shocks' just for the sake of it. What a waste of acting talent, especially Sean Connery
