Movie Summary

Director:
Martin Campbell
Released:
1989
Rating:
R
Criminal Law follows criminal defense attorney Ben Chase (Gary Oldman) who, after obtaining an acquittal in a murder trial, decides to prove that his client Martin Thiel (Kevin Bacon) is in fact a serial killer. When new murders occur, Ben takes matters into his own hands, beginning a psychological battle of wills with Martin. Gary Oldman gives an excellent performance as the criminal defense attorney with a conscience, and Kevin Bacon is intriguing and ambiguous as the killer. The action sequences -- particularly when Ben finds a body in the rain in a deserted park -- are terrific as is the fast-paced direction by Martin Campbell.
