Misconduct

MisconductJosh Duhamel plays an ambitious lawyer who finds himself caught in a power struggle between a corrupt pharmaceutical executive (Anthony Hopkins) and his firm’s senior partner (Al Pacino). When the case takes a deadly turn, he must race to uncover the truth before he loses everything. (R – 106 minutes)

Due to its ludicrous plot developments and dramatic twists, “Misconduct” is almost fun to watch on a guilty pleasure level. After all, the new legal thriller draws you in with some stylish cinematography as well as a top-notch cast that includes Josh Duhamel, Anthony Hopkins and Al Pacino – and that’s just the headliners. But about halfway through, the story starts racing ahead of itself; key scenes are seemingly skipped over and the narrative begins jumping in several different directions. What was once entertaining is suddenly completely preposterous and difficult to follow.
