Murder in the First (1995)

This overdirected courtroom drama would like to be as exciting as A FEW
GOOD MEN, but director Marc Rocco doesn't have enough sense to keep his
camera still during the best parts.  He swirls and twirls through every
scene as if he were filming a wrestling match.  Both Kevin Bacon and
Gary Oldman (again!) are quite good, but Christian Slater is a loss.
He's too much of a lightweight for this sort of stuff.

A long sit.

Grade: C
