  1. Like all the Bruckheimer procedurals... you know what you're getting from the jump: solid but unspectacular acting and storytelling that will leave you satisfied without rocking your world.
  2. The pieces may be familiar, but there are enough new elements that prevent this series from feeling like a total rip-off.
  3. Despite the intense look at the legal process, the show moves quickly.
  4. [It] makes defense work look as sexy as anything on the high-tech "CSI."
  5. Imagine what “Boston Legal” would look like if Jerry Bruckheimer were in charge instead of David E. Kelley.

    Despite its jittery camerawork and souped-up graphics, "Justice" is just a reasonably well-made, meat-and-potatoes lawyer show.
  7. "Justice" chugs along nicely, its plots gratifyingly tense, its dialogue sharp and uncluttered.

    Justice's legal cases are not especially shocking or original, and the supporting characters are empty suits. But it's fascinating to watch for its style.
  9. "Justice" is slick, fast-paced and stylish, with enough twists to separate it from the glut of shows in its genre. But it's also one of the most extraordinarily cynical shows to come along in some time.
  10. With the unvarnished truth dangling like a carrot before a carthorse, there's ample reason for crime-show junkies to cling to "Justice," although some mysteries will be more worth seeing through to the end than others.
  11. 50
    "Justice" offers slick, efficiently produced whodunit escapism without a whit of real originality or dramatic spontaneity.
  12. 50
    The format is what carries the day.
  13. The real problem with "Justice" is that the series is very average.
  14. For all its apparent technical accuracy and some real-world name-dropping, "Justice" feels no more lifelike than "Perry Mason."

    While neither awful nor even particularly bad, there is an earnest silliness to the whole thing.

    not yet aired on German tv, I was able to get 12 episodes from a friend of mine on DVD - it really is one of the best shows I have ever seen. not yet aired on German tv, I was able to get 12 episodes from a friend of mine on DVD - it really is one of the best shows I have ever seen. Two friends of mine have seen it, too. We all love it. I cannot believe this show has been canceled while shows like close to home are still running. Full Review »
