The Firm

"OK"

The Firm Review


Run, Tom, run! Mr. Cruise got a workout in this picture, a film that had him on the run from the evil law firm that employed him and whose clients consist only of mobsters, killers, and other crooks. An all-star cast otherwise makes up for a largely uninspired, overly complex, and far too long movie that nonetheless maintains audience interest throughout a 2.5+ hour runtime. Holly Hunter is particularly good as a slutty private eye's assistant -- in fact, she was nominated for an Oscar for the cheeseball role. Hal Holbrook also earns high marks as an appropriately evil and mysterious bossman.
