What did Roger Ebert have to say about it?

Roger Ebert usually has a valuable and often surprisingly accurate review of films, including the black ones other critics seem to misunderstand. But for this movie, he wasn’t blown away. Though he didn’t bash the actors and their performances, he did state that the plot was unorganized and didn’t allow audiences to identify with any of the characters, with the exception of Frankie, at times.

There are several angles this material might have been approached from, and director Gregory Nava tries several without hitting on one that works. By the end of the film we’re not even left with anyone to root for; we realize with a little astonishment, waiting for the court verdict, that we don’t care who wins.
