The Firm

Critics Consensus

The Firm is a big studio thriller that amusingly tears apart the last of 1980s boardroom culture and the false securities it represented.

Audience Reviews for The Firm

  • Dec 06, 2015
    "The Firm" is a great Mystery and Suspense/Drama film of 1993. The acting in "The Firm" is amazing, the best acting is from "Tom Cruise" and "Gene Hackman". The plot to "The Firm" is great, towards the end it gets better and better, some scenes in the film are pointless/slow. Some of the music in "The Firm" isn't best suited for some scenes. I recommend you watch "The Firm" as it is a great Mystery and Suspense/Drama film of 1993. I give "The Firm" a 7.5/10.

    A thrilling film. Loved the book, and this is an excellent adaptation of it. Worth seeing, even if you have to sit through a ton of lawyer-speak to understand what's going on.

    I've always been perplexed by the legal thriller craze of the 90s . . . what about the genre was so appealing to appealing to mass audiences? The endless law jargon? The predictable twists and turns? Regardless, "The Firm" is a prime example of everything that made so many of these films ultimately forgettable.

    The first Grisham film adaptation and definitely one of the best. Cruise is good as the young lawyer but he also has an amazing cast around him, all giving very strong performances. A thriller about a legal firm doesn't sound like a riveting film but Pollack keeps the suspense constant and is helped by Grisham's strongest story structure. The film has an unmistakably 90's gloss but otherwise this could have been made in the 70's and would have sat alongside other conspiracy thrillers of that era.
