Product Description

Law abiding airplane mechanic, Jimmie Rainwood has his life turned upside down one fateful night. Two bent cops accidentally bust into Jimmie's house rather than the one up the street, and assuming him to be the drug dealer they're after they shoot him. To cover their tracks they frame him as a drug dealer and Jimmie gets a major prison sentence. Struggling to survive in prison Jimmie sets about applying his resourcefulness to the situation whilst his devoted wife Kate attempts to get him freed. Fellow inmate Virgil Cane (F. Murray Abraham) tries to keep Jimmie sane, but can he get justice?

By a long way Tom Selleck's best outing in the movies and well removed from the comfortable "Magnum" image he carefully cultivated for so long. Framed by two crooked cops who shot him in error, he ends up in a tough jail where survival is reliant on the guidance of a worldly lifer (a superb F.Murray Abraham). Gritty, violent and unforgiving the main character hardens as the film progresses up to it's revengeful and vicious climax.

**Small spoiler alert** This film for me is tom selleck's best film. He plays a average man with a normal job and has a beautiful wife, until one day his life changes for the worse, when he is framed by a dodgy pair of cops by mistake.

The great part of this film was in the prison when he has to take out one of the prison inmates, and his friendship with a fellow inmate played by F.Murry Abraham, who helped him get justice.

This film will have you on the edge of your seat. The good thing is the Blu-ray it is region free so will play on uk dvd players.

Innocent? Yes, aren't we all? But in AN INNOCENT MAN, Jimmie Rainwood (Tom Selleck) really is, albeit a presumably highly paid one as a senior mechanic on the aircraft maintenance line of American Airlines in Southern California. Married to Kate (Laila Robins) and living in a hillside house with a view of Los Angeles-San Pedro Harbor, Jimmie has the good life. That is, until he runs afoul of two corrupt drug squad detectives from the local constabulary, Parnell (David Rasche) and Scalise (Richard Young), who supplement their income partnering with a major narcotics supplier, stealing from competing dealers, and selling the goods to their patron. Mistakenly led to believe that a deal is going down at Rainwood's home, they bust in while Jimmie is home alone finishing up a shower. Parnell and Scalise shoot Rainwood thinking the hair dryer he's holding is a weapon. Realizing their mistake, they cover their tracks by planting drugs in the home and a gun in Jimmie's hand, with which he ostensibly took a shot at the officers. Ultimately, Rainwood angrily refuses to plead guilty to lesser charges to get a reduced sentence, and a jury trial results in six years in the state pen.

While incarcerated, Jimmie must thrust aside inhibitions and learn how to literally kill to survive. He does this under the tutelage of fellow con and self-admitted criminal, Virgil Cane (F. Murray Abraham), also put away by Parnell and Scalise, though they beat up Cane's girlfriend during the process of the arrest. Eventually, Rainwood is let out on parole after three years. Returning home, he and Kate continue to be oppressed by the two crooked cops, and Jimmie falls back on his hard-won survival skills to break himself and his wife free.

I found this quite a depressing film, though Selleck’s acting as always was good. Jim Rainwood (Tom Selleck) is an aircraft engineer and is emerging from his shower when two cops burst into his home and shoot him, first, mistaking him for a drug dealer and second thinking that the hair dryer he has in his hand is a gun. In fact it isn’t even the right house – not that these cops are too bothered as they are on the take anyway. Of course, they have the usual ‘throw down’ gun available to frame the victim – all too close to customary practice in U.S. law enforcement for my taste.

Most of the film is about the life of intimidation and persecution Rainwood suffers in prison – until he is provoked into seeking retribution for the abuse he suffers. I found this movie unsatisfactory and unconvincing, though the grim realities of prison life are stark enough. First, his very sweet wife Kate (Laila Robins) doesn’t seem to have much idea about getting a decent lawyer to defend her husband. Secondly, I would be appalled if the police really did make so little effort to establish the true facts of a case against an upright citizen with no record of involvement with drugs. I certainly wouldn’t want to watch this again.

Saw this film years ago but the story is one that returns to your mind. Makes you think that it could just as easily 'happen to you' - albeit more likely ( one hopes!) in the U.S. than in the U.K.

The injustice really affects you and you can totally understand why the Tom Selleck character has to 'change' just to survive and thus becomes the person he does.

For some reason my husband had never seen this film and so we settled down to watch it together on a cold wet Spring evening and both thoroughly enjoyed it.

Doesn't appear dated and all the acting is superb - even the baddies (corrupt Police Officers) whom you absolutely
HATE.

Recommended.

A very interesting tale... but not only is there violence (which you're warned about) but the language is appalling!! Set in a prison I understand but far too much for me... quite a harrowing film but it ends well.
Great acting, as usual, from Tom Selleck & all the other actors.. so for me, a great film marred by constant awful language.

Probably the best film starring Tom Sellick. A good feasible storyline about corrupt police officers, wrongfully arresting and convicting an innocent man. Outstanding fight scene at the end of the film.
