Slow, but decently made, lawyer procedural thriller starring Cruise, Hackman, Tripplehorn, Hunter and a host of other 90s character actors contributing small .
The setup is a good one. A young hotshot lawyer is made an extraordinary employment offer by a relatively small firm. But as soon as you spot some of his colleagues (including alumni from the X-files), you realise he's got himself in with some bad 'uns.
Only the mostly piano based soundtrack grates and makes this seem even longer than its two hour plus running time.
Verdict: All it seems
