Storyline

A street gang raids David Reardon's wife and leaves her half-dead. When the gang is brought to court, she still lies down in coma, so judge Eden has to let them go on lack of evidence. Reardon believes it was Eden's fault and takes revenge: he kidnaps Eden's wife and threatens to kill her if he doesn't find proof against the punks in 7 hours. In panic, Eden starts erring around in the night to find a witness. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

When i saw this movie oddly enough.....
26 August 2001 | by redsounderSee all my reviews

Oddly enough i saw this movie a few times as I worked at a theatre and well could never afford film school and dreamed of what would never be. oddly enough as i recall now in hindsight MORT ABRAHAMS was in the theatre with me watching the movie. Wish i would have recognized him then. A curious thing but well, a footnote in my past now. the film is a cross between psycho and the REBECCA LYONS version of THE LADY THE TIGER AND THE DOOR and a "on the lamb movie". The film mixes courtroom drama with a race against time as a judge must be judged by the derrainged survivor of a murder spree who lost his wife. The judge must try to save his wife while racing through SEATTLE to find clues and being pursused by vicious street gangs who do not want the truth to come out. A great modest budget movie which features a fine cast including some very talented extras. the film was an independent feature from TRANSWORLD, before they went primarily straight to video. The film sports good directoral and production values. I liked the "dream like" otherworldly sequences which added a human touch to the judge and a artsy feel. The film did more monetarily on video tape after theatrical release. A fine movie relesed in sleeper status with little fan fare or advertisement. Several films did this one the year before in 1987 was THE HIDDEN.
