    Rob Reiner's "A Few Good Men" is an intense, captivating and somber courtroom drama that overcomes a predictable plot through powerful filmmaking. With his seventh feature, Reiner crafted a compelling courtroom drama with iconic lines that are still remembered today. Using captivating cinematography, Reiner draws viewers into the world of a lawyer that must defend scandalous marines. From intimate close-ups to stunning establishing shots, the cinematography keeps viewers immersed in the film's setting. Aaron Sorkin's screenplay is sensational, and uses razor-sharp dialogue to keep viewers engrossed in the legal case. In terms of acting, the entire ensemble is at the top of its game. Tom Cruise delivers one of the best performances of his career as Lieutenant Kaffee. With intense expressions, he conveys the courage, determination and perseverance of a lawyer tasked with defending controversial marines. Jack Nicholson is equally excellent in the role of a corrupt Colonel that abuses his power. In one of his finest roles, Nicholson commands every scene he is in with memorable dialogue and an intimidating screen presence. Although "A Few Good Men" is undeniably compelling, ultimately it is not a flawless film. At over two hours, it suffers from an extended running-time. Moreover, it builds to a predictable conclusion that lacks originality. Nevertheless, fans of courtroom dramas will definitely enjoy "A Few Good Men" and so will movie-goers seeking taut entertainment. At a time when legal trials are rarely depicted in films, it's a stirring reminder of the dialogue-driven legal drama that simply doesn't get made anymore.

    This movie can be a bit hard to follow, but I think it's the cast that keeps me watching it over and over again. How can you go wrong with Tom Cruise, Demi Moore, Keifer Sutherland, Kevin Pollack, Kevin Bacon, Jack Nicholson, Cuba Gooding Jr and Noah Wylie? Very dramatic, but some humor as well.

    Back when drama was drama. This movie also showcases the importance of chemistry. If the cast had been one person off, this movie would be boring. Instead, its a showcase of acting talent. Worth a go. Dont worry....you can handle the truth.

    My favorite movie of all time. Some of the best acting mixed with excellent directing make for a superb movie. It is tough to watch older movies sometimes, but this movie always hits home.
