Probably one of the best movies of the early 1990s. It still holds up today, even though technology has advanced so much since then that some of the plot points would have to be reworked if this movie was ever remade. The casting on this was just genius: Tom Cruise in his prime, Wilford Brimley playing against type, Gene Hackman in one of his best roles. It's a shame they don't make legal thrillers like this anymore. The other fun thing is the soundtrack, using just a piano to make all the sounds. I remember when the movie came out there were reports on this on Entertainment Tonight and other shows: the sounds were all made by playing the piano, banging on a piano's sides like a drum, etc. It's fun listening for those touches.

Not one of the better film adaptations of a John Grisham novel. It's an interesting movie nevertheless. A newly minted attorney played by Tom Cruise is recruited by a prestigious law firm in Memphis. As the story unfolds, there is evidence of major corruption, even murder, by some of the firm's partners. When a job offer sounds to good to be true, it probably isn't.

Good movie, featuring John Cruise and Gene Hackman.
