Pacino does his best with a well-meaning but unfocused script, which often concentrates too much on politics, thus failing to do justice to its characters.

Justice is seldom as deep or trenchant as it wants to be, but there's abundant pleasure to be gleaned from skating along its surfaces.

Attempts to alternate between comedy and drama, handling neither one incompetently, but also not excelling at either task.

A tiresome and pointless film where Pacino is wasted as a witness to a parade of lunatics.

If an uneasy mix of humour and sadness never quite gels, its message is clear and its cast uniformly strong.

Pacino alternando com fluidez entre momentos intensos e outros de introspecção, um roteiro bem construído e um clímax inesquecível.

years after watching it you'll have no idea what the central trial was all about... but you'll certainly remember that, whatever it was, it was out of order!

Pacino at the top of his game...[but] the film's lack of faith in its audience is glaringly apparent. [DVD review]

Al Pacino gives a dominant performance as a lawyer whose morals are compromised, but director Norman Jewison can't find the right balance between the critical and satirical elements of the legal system.

Entertaining, with a vintage Pacino performance that only occasionally lapses into grandstanding.

Aims to do for the American judicial system what All the President's Men did for the presidency, and if Jewison had only maintained the tone of the superb original screenplay, he might have succeeded.

With the exception of Mr. Strasberg and Mr. Levene, the actors are as hysterical as their material.

Here's an angry comedy crossed with an expose and held together by one of those high-voltage Al Pacino performances that's so sure of itself we hesitate to demur.

Pacino is a force of nature in this truly entertaining comedy - drama - courtroom procedural.

...And Justice for All has no part in the stock trade of shock witnesses and surprising revelations. This is about how too many guilty people walk while the innocent take their places in overcrowded jails.
