Greenwich Village lawyer Eddie Dodd, who once worked for the ACLU but has become a defender of rich dope dealers, is the subject of another intense performance by James Woods. Roused from his cynicism by an idealistic colleague (Robert Downey, Jr.), Dodd takes the case of an Asian accused in a gang slaying, attracting the ire of white racists and crooked pols. With Margaret Colin, Yuji Okumoto. 100 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English.
