Vin Diesel usually plays lovable surprisingly-deep characters, such as Riddick and The Iron Giant, and ignore the moralistic anonymous "mixed feelings" and enjoy watching him succeed again. The comedy in this movie is directly from the actual trial and not something added. Jury Nullification is a real feature of modern jurisprudence--as with The O.J. Trial. It happens and this shows exactly how it works. Sympathy is one of the most powerful emotions. I put this movie up as the other side of the coin shown in 12 Angry Men; there are no deliberation scenes only courtroom drama. The meta morality here is about people choosing to live their lives free of Government interference--whether we holier-than-thou Christians like it or not. There is a mathematical description of this known as Game Theory and the related Co-operation Theory, and Conspiracy is a subset of them. In WWI, generals on both sides were furious when their troops stopped fighting for Christmas on the battlefield in the trenches. Judge this movie after you watch it and think about it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
