Did You Know?


Merle Hammond: [reading an excerpt from George Saticoy's editorial, at the trial of Damon Benning, George's killer] ..."Perhaps the reason we've been slow to respond to the epidemic is because we're used to having it shoved down our throats. Well, we're not going to take it anymore. The straight world has tried to exterminate us. Now it is our turn ot kill or be killed. It's time to take the world hostage, not with a gun, but with the bile of our own blood."

Vigilante Garbage
21 July 2002 | by Squishy-12See all my reviews

A woman takes a defense attorney hostage, subjects him to a nice game of Russian Roulette and other threats and humiliations--then relies on the tricks of another attorney to get her off the hook for it.

Her jaw-dropping hypocrisy could have been the basis for a nice melodrama, but no, this is pure "Lifetime"-style "man-baaaad woman-gooood" constipation, so she is presented at worst as "pushed over the edge by injustice"--and at best as America's Greatest Hero.

The judge at her trial and her attorney are ridiculously unprofessional--but they're women, so it's "okay." Her victim--and his fellow lawyers? Man baaaaaaaad.

Put "Final Justice" to this test: pretend you're the defense attorney. Because you do your job, someone takes YOU hostage, holds you at gunpoint, tortures you with death threats, then walks away free--fully capable of doing it all over again.

Is she your hero now?
