Very intriguing movie about a "lawyer organization" that tries to manipulate a court trial involving a major gun manufacturer.

With a cast this strong, this should be so much better. However, it remains an entertaining if forgettable courtroom drama, pretty much in keeping with every adaptation of a Grisham novel. The films moves briskly and the message of the film is well meaning wish fulfilment, but the plot is thin and contrived and stretches credibility to breaking point. Hackman and Hoffman are always watchable however, and both Cusack and Weisz do well to flesh out rather dull characters whose predictable motivation is revealed near the end.
