As per the title if you have not seen the movie, stop right here cause I am gonna spill the beans.
At the end of the movie Denise Richards, who plays a psychologist sent to evaluate the case of a multi murderer on death row soon to be executed, recommends that the killer's execution be stayed in the interest of justice and violence prevention. However since she waited until the last few hours to present her findings she had no time to really make her case before the authorities.
They telegraphed it way ahead of time; the inmate was executed as Richards looked at him from the witness area.
So what was her mistake? She should have read the script ahead of time. Then she could presented her findings several days in advance, taking her time to make her case more persuasively. She could have bribed the writers to slip a few changes into the script and had the execution stayed. Seems like a pretty simple thing for an experienced actress to do.
But she didn't, and Kaiwi Lyman-Mersereau was put to death, a terrible waste of an actor, supremely dedicated to his craft. The poor guy didn't even get a happy ending before his death. Such a shame.
