If you like drama and intrigue I have found a great film for you. Tru Believer, starring James Woods and Robert Downy Jr. takes a look at the criminal side of law enforcement. Not all cops are honest and it takes a good lawyer to catch em and try to take em down. Love the retro VHS look of this blu-ray’s case.
Action-Packed Courtroom Drama!
The killing. The conviction. The cover-up. James Woods is about to go up against corruption and conspiracy at the highest levels of New York City law enforcement in the action-packed courtroom drama, True Believer. Woods is spellbinding as Eddie Dodd, once an acclaimed civil rights attorney of the ’60s, now an embittered cynic who makes a living defending drug-dealing low-lifes. Dodd’s passion for justice is rekindled when an idealistic young associate (Robert Downey, Jr.) urges him to re-open an eight-year-old murder case involving a young prisoner serving life in Sing Sing for a gang initiation killing. Dodd’s frenetic search for the truth takes him through a harrowing maze of unscrupulous prosecutors, white supremacist hate groups and corrupt cops. But is he willing to put his life on the line in defense of his beliefs? A powerful thriller, True Believer takes a piercing look at justice for all, from all sides of the American legal system.
