Bryan Lienesch94 - One my all time favorites. What else is there to say? If you can't enjoy this movie, you can't handle industry?

Jim Carrier93 - Tom Cruise did a terrific job as a cocky lawyer who plea bargains most of his cases, but finally decides to work a case of two Marines that claim they were obeying orders from their superiors (Jack Nicholson & Kiefer Sutherland). There are two movies were one character stole the show while only being in the movie for less than half an hour...Jack steals the show in this movie while being in it for approx 15 mins.

Dan O'Neill85 - A Few Good Men may be your conventional story, it all gets over-shadowed by itís great script, powerful acting from the whole cast, and those last 20 minutes that will just take you back so much.
