Fun attorney flick without the typical court room drull and a tasty jazz piano soundtrack
Grisham’s first blockbuster gets the Tom Cruise treatment. Gene Hackman is really good as the mentor
Good thriller with some decent twists. Tom Cruise does really well in this. Kept me on the edge of my seat. Worth a watch.
Top of line 90s thriller. And a different Gene Hackman performance that he absolutely kills! (Surprise surprise)
A gripping thriller that starts slow, but ramps up further and further as it goes along.
1 of Cruise's best thrillers ever. He'd been in the game a little over 10 years, by this time. So adapting a big book title was paramount!
The conspiracy plot can be hard to follow but the movie is so well directed, edited and acted that it keeps you at the edge of the seat
Tom Cruise shines in this, it slows down in the middle but gets intense at the end again.
Has not survived that well, but it has some good parts
A thriller with twists and turns, an entertaining watch
