Suspenseful, powerful, poignant, unforgettable, and sharply directed.

A bit stilted and an unlikely alignment of parts, "A Few Good Men" maintains a taut, compelling hold from start to finish.

A star packed cast is actually pretty effective in this court drama presenting an awesome villain. Fantastic script. [Full review in Spanish].

As speechy and preachy a courtroom drama as you'll ever find, detailing the secret manoeuvring that shadows a naval court-martial.

There are more than a few excellent men in the cast, and a fine woman, too. But Rob Reiner's A Few Good Men roars with excitement only when Jack Nicholson seizes the drama between his sneering, snarling teeth.

Designed to get the audience rooting for this upper-class underdog, the movie accomplishes its task with military efficiency. But since the deck is stacked and the cards well worn, it hardly seems a victory to cherish.

...a solid legal thriller that benefits substantially from a raft of better-than-average elements.
April 30, 2014
By pitting Cruise against Nicholson in the film`s final courtroom confrontation, Sorkin and Reiner are pitting two notions of masculinity and two notions of stardom against each other.
April 30, 2014
A brisk and familiar courtroom drama of the old school, as pleasant to watch as it is predictable, Men more than anything else is a tribute to pure star power.
April 30, 2014
The whole film, with its steady, important-picture pacing, its foursquare visual style, and its pseudo-profundity, is a piece of glorified banality.
April 30, 2014
The literally in-your-face camera work can easily expose an actor's weaknesses, but, with the lens framed on Nicholson's bulldog visage, he lets loose with volcanic fury. His demagoguery and gung-ho self-righteousness are something to behold.
April 30, 2014
The driving force of the story is watching Cruise`s character develop some backbone and staying power.
April 30, 2014
As you may have suspected, Jack Nicholson steals the show. His Col. Nathan Jessep isn't in a lot of scenes, but when he's there, you can't take your eyes off him.
April 30, 2014
It's a very watchable picture, with plenty of drama and some good laughs. But you can't forget for a moment that Reiner is taking your emotions on a carefully guided tour.
April 30, 2014
The film's entire cast and crew prove up to the task, and there's something both comfortably old-fashioned and blazingly contemporary about Aaron Sorkin's screenplay.
April 30, 2014
The ultimate rebel Jack Nicholson has a ball playing the ultimate establishment figure in this star-laden, rather old-fashioned courtroom drama.
April 30, 2014
As a courtroom drama, it manages to overcome its shortcomings -- some fairly ridiculous dialogue, implausible situations and predictable plot points -- with the pure screen power of its stars.
April 30, 2014
Though a courtroom drama on the surface, the movie is really about the changing face of power in the military, and in all walks of life.
April 30, 2014
I'm usually a sucker for courtroom dramas, but Rob Reiner's highly mechanical 1992 feature... kept putting me to sleep.

More than competent are Moore, spared from what would have been a phony romantic involvement with Cruise, Kevin Bacon as a prosecutor and Kiefer Sutherland as a by-the-book Marine.
