Can a thriller about lawyers thrill? Beware a plot filled with technical twists.

The Firm (1993)

The twist in the plot as you realize this Memphis law firm is not what it seems, and the rather innocent freshman lawyer played by Tom Cruise is slow to catch on, is the core of the movie, and a relief. It starts steadily, or slowly, depending on your patience, and in fact plays many scenes out in more detail than we need for a kind of bookish thriller. It's not a bad ride, and there are some further, minor twists, but it's not packed tightly enough, or frankly original enough, to lift its boots out of the sand.

Director Sydney Pollack, hugely successful as a director and actor, might have just had bad scriptwriting here by David Rabe, because John Grisham's book had proved itself. The acting is really solid (I'm no Cruise fan, but he's fine), but the characters are often doing things that just don't quite follow, or that are improbable or stupid. Or they end up doing something dangerous and the danger is either watered down or ridiculous. Examples that come to mind are how they show Cruise discovering or stealing or xeroxing files. We get the plot, but it lumbers along, or is just shown, not built up with suspense. The cinematographer takes a hit here, I think. Things are often nicely framed and routinely well done, but a thriller needs to hide some things, show some things, create ambiance and mystery, and so on, visually. It doesn't really happen.

So, for a kind of technical high-stakes, rich person's good-guy bad-guy suspense film, it will get you through, but barely. By the last five minutes, if you aren't sucked in, you'll want to scream "hurry up!"

Great Performances From A Great Cast, But A Tad Too Long.

Continuing my plan to watch every Tom Cruise movie in order, I come to The Firm (1993)

Plot In A Paragraph: Young lawyerMitch McDeere (Cruise) joins a prestigious law firm only to discover that it has a sinister dark side.

After two underperforming movies in a row, Cruise is back with two back to back big hits. Personally I think this is a little too long. This is a really good movie with some great performances, but it should have been a great movie. I don't have a problem with long movies (I actually prefer them) but this movie didn't warrant such a long run time. With a bit of trimming and a tighter screenplay this would be a classic.

This features a great Crusie performance Gene Hackman is his usual brilliant self Hal Holbrook is as reliable as always, Ed Harris is very disturbing looking with his bald head, Wifred Burnley makes a surprisingly convincing bad guy. Jeanne Tripplehorn is fine, Gary Busey has a role as a very small role as a private eye, and Paul Sorvino has an even smaller one. Holly Hunter was Oscar nominated for her small role.

The Firm grossed $158million at the domestic box office, to end the year the 4th highest grossing movie of 1993.

good movie

This was a good adaptation of the John Grisham novel. Tom Cruise gives a good turn as Mitch, a recent law school grad about to take his bar exam and get a job in prestigious Memphis law firm. However, his dream job soon turns into a nightmare when he learns of some rather dark secrets the firm has-like what happens to the lawyers and "recruits" when one of the partners takes them on "business trips" to the Cayman Islands, something Mitch is about to go on. Things start to spiral downwards as they use one of his family secrets and other things against him.

This movie features a good story, a great cast, decent suspense, and good performances. Fans of John Grisham will like this.

*** out of ****
