Picks and Pans Review: The Last Innocent Man
Underneath all the preposterous coincidences, there is an entertainingly tense crime tale in this film. Originally a cable TV production, it stars Ed (Walker) Harris as a defense lawyer who begins to question his career choice: He's a specialist in getting accused murderers off. When he falls for a woman whose estranged husband is then charged with killing an undercover vice cop, he faces all sorts of ethical dilemmas. While the film often bears a resemblance to Body Heat, Harris and Roxanne (The Verdict) Hart strike up a fiery relationship (there are a couple of graphic sex scenes), and director Roger (Under Fire) Spottiswoode keeps up the tension even amid some unlikely plot turns. (Unrated) (Lorimar, $79.95)
