Product Description

Amazon.ca

A U.S. soldier is dead, and military lawyers Lieutenant Daniel Kaffee and Lieutenant Commander JoAnne Galloway want to know who killed him. "You want the truth?" snaps Colonel Jessup (Jack Nicholson). "You can't handle the truth!" Astonishingly, Jack Nicholson's legendary performance as a military tough guy in A Few Good Men really amounts to a glorified cameo: he's only in a few scenes. But they're killer scenes, and the film has much more to offer. Tom Cruise (Kaffee) shines as a lazy lawyer who rises to the occasion, and Demi Moore (Galloway) gives a command performance. Kevin Bacon, Kiefer Sutherland, J.T. Walsh, and Cuba Gooding Jr. (of Jerry Maguire fame) round out the superb cast. Director Rob Reiner poses important questions about the rights of the powerful and the responsibilities of those just following orders in this classic courtroom drama.

"The facts of the case are these:

"On midnight of September 6, the accused entered the barracks room of their platoon mate, P.F.C. William Santiago. They woke him up, tied his arms and legs with tape, and forced a rag into his throat. A few minutes later, a chemical reaction called lactic acidosis caused his lungs to begin bleeding. He drowned in his own blood and was pronounced dead at 37 minutes past midnight.

These are the facts and they will not be disputed."

The above comes from this mesmerizing American drama becoming a courtroom drama at the end. It was adapted from Aaron Sorkin's play of the same name by Sorkin himself. (Sorkin also has a bit part in the movie.)

It tells a conventional but compelling story.

This movie stars Tom Cruise, Jack Nicholson, and Demi Moore with Kevin Bacon and Kiefer Sutherland in key supporting roles.

It centers around the court marshal of two U.S. marines charged with the murder of a fellow marine (as revealed in the quotation above) and the tribulations of their inexperienced lawyers (Cruise, Kevin Pollock, Moore) as they prepare a case to defend their clients.

What I especially enjoyed is that this is a good talking movie with no special effects.

And the acting--superb! Both Cruise and Nicholson give unforgettable performances especially when there is verbal sparring between them.

The final courtroom showdown is riveting--you can't miss this!

Here's a typical line from Nicholson's character when he's being cross-examined:

"What do you want to discuss now? My favourite colour?"

I also liked the background music. It added to each scene.

To say A Few Good Men is superb is an understatement. This film has it all: a great story, great acting, great suspense, and great drama. The film should really be part of the 5-Star Collection. The film has a great cast Tom Cruise, Demi Moore, Jack Nicholson, Kevin Bacon, and Kevin Pollak.
This film is about two members of the Navy, who are being tried for the murder of their partner for being a witness to one of them shooting illegally into Cuba. This sparks for a great drama in which a smart mouthed, cocky lawyer (Cruise), his brash female love interest (Demi Moore), his "helper" so to speak (Kevin Pollak), a angry Col. (Nicholson), and the prosecutor (Kevin Bacon).
This film is great, and I would recommend it to anyone who loves good acting and an even better story.

4.0 out of 5 stars good-looking blu-ray Feb. 19 2010
By Cheryl TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
This fact-inspired court drama still holds its punch and looks great on blu-ray. The script is well-written and an all-star cast is put to good use, but it's Nicholson who's most remembered for his commanding role (and best supporting oscar win). There are not alot of blu-ray extras - a couple of featurettes and a spotty Rob Reiner commentary (with subtitles!), but there is a calibrator which can be accessed via the insert instructions. This film is highly recommended (but be prepared for few moments of 'rousing hollywoodism' at the end).

4.0 out of 5 stars Unit - Corps - God - Country. Nov. 2 2008
Format:UMD for PSP
How much critical thought can the military allow its rank and file? Certainly most orders must be followed unquestioningly; otherwise ultimately the entire Armed Services would collapse. But where do you draw the line? Does it matter how well soldiers know not only their military but also their civic duties? Does it matter whether trials against members of the military are handled by way of court-martials, or before a country's ordinary courts?

I first saw "A Few Good Men" as an in-flight movie, and after the first couple of scenes I thought that for once they'd really picked the right kind of flick: A bit cliched (yet another idle, unengaged lawyer being dragged into vigorously pursuing a case against his will), but good actors, a good director and a promising storyline.

Then the movie cut from the introductory scenes in Washington, D.C. to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and Jack Nicholson (Colonel Nathan Jessup) inquired: "Who the f**k is PFC William T. Santiago?"

And suddenly I was all eyes and ears.

Director Rob Reiner and Nicholson's costars describe on the movie's DVD how from the first time Nicholson spoke this (his very first) line in rehearsal he had everybody's attention; and the overall bar for a good performance immediately rose to new heights. Based on my own reaction, I believe them sight unseen. Or actually, not really "unseen," as the result of Nicholson's influence is there for everybody to watch: Never mind that he doesn't actually have all that much screen time, his intensity as an actor and the personality of his character, Colonel Jessup, dominate this movie more than anything else; far beyond the now-famous final showdown with Tom Cruise's Lieutenant Kaffee.
