Gene Hackman is opposing counsel to daughter Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio is this courtroom drama. Hackman, a crusader going after a negligent automaker, battles Mastantonio, an ambitious woman seeking to scale the corporate law ladder.

In and out of court, the two leads amply display their acting gifts, but several scenes have a soap opera quality and the climax fizzles. This Michael Apted-directed outing also stars Laurence Fishburne.
