More Info:
  • Jonathan Rosenbaum

    Stylish and effective, if slightly overlong, thriller.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    This is the second movie Judd and Freeman have made together (after "Kiss the Girls" in 1997). They're both good at projecting a kind of Southern intelligence that knows its way around the frailties of human nature.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    Comes across as gratifying, not grating: the same way the familiarity of a well-crafted whodunit is part of the book's pleasures.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    Has some faults, but it manages to keep its audience either angry or jumpy from start to finish.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    Satisfies a hunger for the basics: a decent mystery to chew on, a bit of juicy suspense, maybe a plot twist as garnish. The fare is all on the standard menu, but it goes down well just the same.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    Franklin injects life into a flat format and has in the process done something nearly unheard of in Hollywood as of late: He's brought class back to the genre film.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • William Arnold

    Even if it lacks the finesse of Franklin's earlier work, High Crimes moves like a bullet.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Michael Wilmington

    It's still a disappointment: a well-mounted and well-acted suspense movie that, thanks to its illogical script, falls off a cliff midway through.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    Franklin directs smoothly, but except for Freeman, the theatrics are pretty pro forma.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    The problem with High Crimes, acceptable though it is, is that it's not close to anyone's best work.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • David Sterritt

    The story has possibilities, but you'll spot the big plot twists long before they happen, and the acting by Judd and Cavaziel is strictly by the numbers.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    The biggest offense in the somewhat unimaginative but serviceable legal thriller High Crimes is that the venerable Morgan Freeman simply does not get enough screen time, and when he's up there, he doesn't have enough to do.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    It's terribly predictable and often risible stuff.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Mike Clark

    It's no crime the movie has one or two endings too many, given that many thrillers of the past quarter-century have had the same. But Judd's latest is too harmless to be anything but a misdemeanor.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    Every minute of the film is trash, and director Carl Franklin seems to know it.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    The chief pleasure of High Crimes (and it's a limited one) comes from watching Morgan Freeman, who can bring a sense of integrity to even the silliest thriller.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Rick Groen

    This thing's got more plot than an Alliance convention. Unfortunately (to extend the comparison), not a whole lot of it makes a lick of common sense.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Michael Sragow

    It's hard to see Franklin's fingerprints on the material. It's as if he directed with his gloves on.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Maitland McDonagh

    Undermined by contrived suspense sequences, a pointless subplot involving Claire's flaky, trashy sister, and a formulaic thriller ending.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    This is very much a ''woman's picture,'' driven by a twin rudder of anxiety and empowerment.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    While its blowout finale is telegraphed long before the first act ends, and too much else is just as obvious and bland, Judd, Freeman and Franklin never stop adding filigree. The big picture isn't much to look at, but the detailing isn't bad.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    For his part. Mr. Freeman shows himself, once again, incapable of giving a bad performance.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Michael Dequina

    Washes away whatever unique filmmaking personality Franklin has.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Charles Taylor

    High Crimes does offer good, often sharp and funny work from its two stars. But you can't fake excitement, and it's a lousy feeling to know that the best commercial movie I can point you to right now is this shallow, self-erasing nonsense. Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    The strands in High Crimes don't coalesce. Those red herrings somehow take over the picture; the thing itself turns into a giant red herring.

    Slate Full Review
  • Robert Koehler

    Judd now is top-billed, but her performance is so resolutely humorless and businesslike that Freeman's gruffly affectionate warmth becomes doubly valuable, though not nearly enough to lend this generic project any special character.

    Variety Full Review
  • Luke Y. Thompson

    Film falls into the same trap as the book: a moderately interesting setup ultimately undone by an ending that makes the audience feel like fools for investing any sympathy with the characters.

    New Times (L.A.) Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    Once, for no reason, Franklin whirled the camera around 360 degrees while two people were having an ordinary conversation. I suspect he must have been as bored by then as I was.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    A major disappointment that lacks the courage to follow through on its premise's themes.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Nick Rutigliano

    Secret trials and buried atrocities are no match for a plucky (and rich, and svelte) young heroine, least of all Ms. Ashley Judd, who eyebrow-cocks her way through Carl Franklin's witless High Crimes.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Stephen Hunter

    All in all, High Crimes isn't worth the crayons it took to write the script.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    Ms. Judd commands the screen with consistent authority, and Mr. Freeman brings expansive humor to the role of a self-styled wildcard who's still dangerous in court.
