One of the most engrossing underrated legal thrillers in years...

...the best cinematic rendering of a Grisham novel ever, which is either saying a quite lot or very little at all, depending upon your view of things Grisham.
| Original Score: B+

The film's action is limited to repeatedly ransacking Cusack's apartment, and the plot is rife with Big-Brother-is-watching paranoia.

...the first adaptation of a John Grisham novel whose premise and doings I found didn't ring true for a second. Yet I enjoyed the film from beginning to end. Go figure.

Lo que tambalea un poco es el final, porque como suele pasar en el cine de Hollywood las cosas se resuelven más fácilmente de lo que la verosimilitud indicaría...

The kind of bracing psychological thriller that makes a case for the battle of ideas being every bit as thrilling as a great fight scene.
Brian Gibson

December 1, 2003
A tepid legal thriller . . . madly edited, with serviceable performances and dialogue that's snappy without being biting. . . . evades answering the moral questions it poses.

Anexpertly crafted crime thriller that knows how to juggle the facts and the action without bogging them down in fits of overkill.

The film is well enough made to keep our interest, even if it never comes close to delivering on the promise of the material or the cast.
