December 21, 2008
Although Nicholson has little more than an extended cameo, he seizes the final courtroom scene and makes it a tour de force of cinema.
October 18, 2008
The same histrionic fireworks that gripped theater audiences will prove even more compelling to filmgoers due to the star power and dramatic screw-tightening.

Julgando-se mais importante e inteligente do que é na verdade, o filme conta com um roteiro ingênuo em seu idealismo juvenil e traz Cruise em uma performance implausível e repleta de maneirismos de estrela.
| Original Score: 2/5
July 3, 2006
Highly entertaining courtroom drama that's well-directed by Reiner but narratively flawed. Thematically, the story is fraudulent--much ado about nothing--but enjoybale to watch.

The intellectual cut-and-thrust of the courtroom is largely absent here, and the denouement seems slick, arbitrary, and derived from the Captain Queeg catalogue.
November 20, 2005
So well written and so well acted that you almost don't notice what a shoddy and clumsy piece of filmmaking it is.
| Original Score: 3/5

Entertaining but contrived.
| Original Score: 3/5

The great courtroom drama. Fast-paced compelling mystery with moral undertones.
| Original Score: 4/5
May 20, 2003
The screenplay is a good one, directed with care and acted, for the most part, with terrific conviction.
April 27, 2003
Film of the highest order...and that's the truth

It probably will win some Oscars, but if this is the best film of the year, it is a pretty poor year for films.

Only Jack Nicholson rises to the film's overblown sensibility.

An underrated near-classic. No one who has seen this movie will forget it.
| Original Score: 4/5
September 20, 2002
Like a roast that's baked too long, the acting in this film is 'over done.'
| Original Score: 3/5
August 21, 2002
Ignited by a clash of values, courtroom fireworks and a dazzling display of topnotch acting.
January 9, 2002
As a play of ideas, it has the profundity of a high-school debate, with a wan, climactic sermon about the need to stand up for the little guy.
May 12, 2001
That the performances are uniformly outstanding is a tribute to Rob Reiner (Misery), who directs with masterly assurance, fusing suspense and character to create a movie that literally vibrates with energy.
January 1, 2000
A Few Good Men is one of those movies that tells you what it's going to do, does it, and then tells you what it did.
