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

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.

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

The screenplay is a good one, directed with care and acted, for the most part, with terrific conviction.

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.

Like a roast that's baked too long, the acting in this film is 'over done.'
| Original Score: 3/5

Ignited by a clash of values, courtroom fireworks and a dazzling display of topnotch acting.

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.

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.

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.

That rarest of things: a top-level Hollywood court-room drama with the smarts to match its slick style.

Men is full of loaded, manly moments, great clashes of will and excellent buzz cuts.
