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 ****

Tense But Flimsy, it's Acceptable at Best

Tom Cruise as a hotshot lawyer, fresh out of school, who takes a tantalizing job offer in Memphis and discovers it's more than he bargained for. Soon he's on the run from both the law and his former bosses, trying to serve justice without sacrificing his young career along the way. It's serviceable, but has some issues. Most of the plot revolves around various cast members making poor decisions under pressure, which is odd considering they share a profession that demands cool heads. The big-spending highs never seem all that high, perhaps a symptom of the movie's age (the cushy home Cruise is provided by his new employers is furnished to look like your Grandma's crib), and the chief threats can be hard to take seriously because they always seem so bumbling and aloof. The firm's muscle, led by a rotund, elderly Wilford Brimley (with a quick appearance from Breaking Bad's Dean Norris), is a comedy of errors and the pursuing FBI squad, likewise, can't get out of its own way. It has twists and turns, standard for a Grisham adaptation, but they aren't always set up properly and don't make a ton of sense. Usually you'd expect some great oration from this kind of place setting, but the monologues are kept short and underwhelming in favor of a series of frantic chase scenes and tense near-misses. A touch on the bland side, it's not as bad as my complaints might let on but also not as good as some of the author's better-known works.
