Was this the one that took place on a moving train?

Do you remember when Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio was supposed to be the next big thing and then she vanished after Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves? Perhaps we should have seen the future forecast here. A very plain and ordinary movie based on a slightly interesting premise. Blah! Only see this if you are bored.

Class Action was a typical but good court-room drama, while Die Hard was kinda what I expected. 3-Iron (or Bin-Jip as it is originally titled) was a bit weird, but still watchable.

Meh, so-so. Back when Mary Elizabeth Mastraantonio was riding her post Robin Hood-The Abyss popularity.

Not a bad courtroom film, although the movie practically screamed "early 90's" and "girl power". Still, I agree, it was an emotional drama...slightly compelling.

[size=2]I'm beginning the rather lengthy task of entering into the database every film I have seen, at least those I have a decent memory of. Some may have the briefest of reviews while many will just have a number. Those films that I consider personal favorites and/or those that have some historical signficance I will add later when I have time for more lengthy reviews.

[b]Corrina, Corrina[/b]
Director: Jessie Nelson
Stars: Whoopi Goldberg, Ray Liotta, Joan Cusack, Don Ameche, Tina Majoriino.
Synopsis: Sentimental drama about loss and race relations. Story becomes too sappy.

[b]City of Joy[/b]
Director: Roland Joffe
Stars: Patrick Swayze, Pauline Collins, Om Puri.
Synopsis: An American surgeon tries to find himself in the povery striken city of Calcutta, India. Should have been a much better film.

[b]The Cutting Edge[/b]
Director: Paul Michael Glaser
Stars: D.B. Sweeney and Moira Kelly.
Synopsis: Spoiled Ice Princess and washed up hockey player team up in an attempt to make the Olympics. This romantic comedy is about as cliched and cheesy as it can get.

[b]Class Action[/b]

Stars: Gene Hackman, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, Laurence Fishburne, Colin Friels.
Synopsis: Watchable courtroom drama has a liberal lawyer (Hackman) who's firm has filed a lawsuit against a major auto manufacturer his conservative daughter represents.

Anchored by captivating performances by Gene Hackman and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, Class Action is a gripping and emotion-fueled court drama that never fails with its solid narrative.

The interplay of the two lead is interesting but the predictable ending is a downer.

Solid courtroom drama. Hackman makes it worth seeing.

As a female viewer, I am not sure if I agree with what this film implied about cheating husbands. And about female lawyers. Still, the film had nice court moments and interesting ideas about corporate accountability.

A decent legal thriller in which underdog but successful lawyer Jedediah Tucker Ward (Hackman) takes on an automobile manufacturing company, Argo, for the deaths and injuries of a number of consumers of their 1985 Meridian model. The case is further complicated when Ward's own daughter, Maggie (Mastrantonio), also a lawyer, is given the case by Argo's attorney's placing an already fractured father-daughter relationship in jeopardy. What makes this particular film stand out is the fact that the case is used as a way to progress the family relationship and the principles of both lawyers involved. The film loses momentum when Hackman isn't on screen despite Mastrantonio giving an fine performance.

A good film about 2 lawyers, A father and his daughter who are pitted against each other in the court room.
½ April 15, 2012
Another film that sells itself as a court room drama, but really only covers 50% of the movie. The rest is more of a family movie trying to get through their difficulties. Ok.... but wish they would have concentrated on the court daram more.
