Ashley Judd, the mistress of perky peril, plays a San Francisco attorney who learns that her husband (Jim Caviezel) is not what he seems. The movie shifts into military-courtroom mode when Judd teams up with a rumpled lawyer (Morgan Freeman) in need of redemption, and it then morphs, every 20 minutes or so, into a stranger-in-the-dark-house suspense thriller. High Crimes carries little organic intrigue as a government/Marine/legal mystery, yet the story ”beats” are all in place. It’s what connects them that’s the problem.
