I like John Cusack as an actor, this was a good movie and some laughs a long the way.
I enjoyed it, I do like john Grisham novels,but somehow missed this one. Cusak is always enjoyable I think, snd here he is great, Hackman of course, brilliant as always.
For courtroom movie/tele show fans, highly recommended.
And the 90's music is great for a laugh!
Seen it on TV many times!
Gene Hackman is brilliant in this!
Good movie....BETTER book!
Great entertainment. I watched it twice and the second time was even better (with the sub titles). Hackman and Hoffman are the stars and turn in strong performances. Strangely, the book which I've just started reading is a pale version of the film. The decision to change the trial from tobacco to guns enhances the drama, and was well taken.
A watchable show. Not the best, not the worst. Average
Terrific film.. Very close to the book, with the only real change being the actual court case, which is now about gun control. The producers probably felt a movie about smoking and lung cancer might put off potential audience members who were smokers. A reasonable assumption, and the change doesn't really affect the real story that much. Great cast and well directed, with very satisfying ending.
Good twists. a bit too long.
We thoroughly enjoyed this movie - don't miss it.
I really enjoyed this movie. It was well-paced and kept the twists and turns coming. Even though you pretty much knew where it was heading, it was fun to take the ride. What a treat to watch Gene Hackman and Dustin Hoffman at work and an extra bonus to have one of my favourites, John Cusack thrown into the mix.
Another brilliant movie starring John Cusak
Lots of twists, didn't predict the ending.
If you love court room dramas, you will love this one! I really enjoyed it but you do need to concentrate. The end wasn't predictable, a nice twist and i will read the book now. Enjoy!
Loved it, well written, fast paced thriller with a twist at the end.
good twists and turns with a happy ending. if only it was real life.
A Good movie. Unfortunately a drawn out storyline takes the suspense out of it.However keeps you interested right the way through. Worth watching.
Have seen movies with a similar theme but this is the best! Good performances by all actors, just the right length.
Not an important movie, but good escapist show.
Found it a bit hard to get into at the beginning but ended up enjoying it. Great cast.
Really entertaining, fast paced, drama.
Lots of twists and turns and a great ending. Is it even possible for John Cusack to do a bad movie? I think not!
Really enjoyed this film.
Enjoyed the movie, recommend to watch it when its quite to understand the twist and turns of the story.
Loved this! As I love anything by John Grishom even though often the storylines are somewhat different from the book, the basic plot is always there.
Great movie, loved John Cusak, and a good twist at the end!
This movie hooks you like a starving fish and doesnt let you go until the credits cut you loose. Maybe its not the best of its genre but something about it is compelling, possibly the fact of the weight of justice being swayed by the highest bidder.
A strong compelling movie, mainly because of Gene Hackman's great performance (as always), but if you are a John Grisham fan like me and having read the book, there were too many changes to the storyline, but still a very enjoyable movie.
Thoroughly enjoyed it :-)
To me a typical screen version of this kind of "best-seller" - big-name cast, glossy production, but not one character you give a damn about one way or another. Style over substance.
Very entertaining and will not disappoint.
Great film, great plot, keeps you thinking til the end!
The best movie we have seen for some time! Kept us riveted from the moment it started to its enthralling conclusion. Great!
Reading the book was better than watching the movie.
Rivetting stuff! We were at the edge of our seats all through the movie. Gene Hackman and Dustin Hoffman played their parts to perfection. Enjoyable watch!
Really good courtroon drama/John Cusack movie
Catchy story line - good cast - bit of a twist!
This movie tells you how people can be bought and how the legal system is corrupt.
Outstanding,beat the big boys at their own game.Payback time has come.
This one I would recommend for those who has interest in Thriller-cum-court scenes combination. A few hollywood top gun actors performances are simply superb.
Very good story didnt know the plot to the very end.
Excellent movie with a storyline that has enough twists and turns to keep you paying attention. Gene Hackman and Dutin Hoffman are excellent and John Cusack again delivers the goods. Overall a classy thriller
Good movie, fast paced, but disappointed in the ending.
It was good in the beginning, a bit of suspense, but the story is far-fetched.
Good fast paced thriller. Gene Hackman in great form.
Good movie a bit long winded in some parts but a thriller.
Got a bit bored. John Cusack usually picks really good movies, but this one left a little to be desired. Weak story line.
Great film, good plot twists, and a satisfying end result.
Great movie, with a great twist at the end. Keeps you guessing all the way to the end.
With all the plotting and scheming going on it is sure to keep you guessing. Great cast and wonderful twists. Definitely a great flick.
good movie! Note the movie is against firearms but the book it is based on is about tobacco
bit long but really worth watching
Excellent Grisham film! Make sure you add this one to your list!
Great story telling...love the twists.
