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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

A somber, studiedly intense drama that is absorbing despite its total predictability.

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.
