3 stars out of 5 -- Cruise is at his winsome best, surrounded by a barrage of fine character performances from Ed Harris, Holly Hunter and David Strathairn...
Rating: 2/5 -- The movie is extremely long (two hours and 34 minutes) and so slow that by the end you feel as if you've been standing up even if you've been sitting down.
New York Times
...The movie is virtually an anthology of good small character performances....A late, tricky scene between Hackman and Tripplehorn is like a master class in acting...
The Firm is soft -- lumpy in its plotting and almost silly at times. Full Review
...Physically elaborate, the cinematic equivalent of the book's relentlessly descriptive prose...
New York Times
Rating: 7/10 -- ...pits Cruise against the world, with only his character's wit. Full Review
...It's a pleasure to watch these flamboyant performers chew on their lines...
Sydney Pollack directs Tom Cruise in this fast-paced legal thriller based on John Grisham's best-selling novel. Lured by extraordinary financial perks, Mitch McDeere, a young and hungry Harvard Law student, turns down offers at the top law firms to take a position at a small but wealthy Memphis firm. Mitch, a boy from the wrong side of the tracks fueled by ambition and greed, ignores his wife Abby's initial misgivings about the suspiciously paternalistic practices of his new employers. It's only when two of his fellow lawyers die in a mysterious accident that Mitch begins to share her apprehensions. He then launches an investigation into the true nature of the firm and discovers that it is a front for a complex and sinister web of organized crime, one from which no lawyer has managed to escape alive. Solid storytelling and fine performances bring this seemingly improbable situation straight into reality.
