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.
April 30, 2014
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.
April 30, 2014
A somber, studiedly intense drama that is absorbing despite its total predictability.
April 30, 2014
The best feature of Rob Reiner's court martial drama isn't Jack Nicholson's "You can't handle the truth" speech. It's seeing a classy cast and a slick script hammer home a smart liberal message.
