From Amazon.co.uk

This first film adaptation of a John Grisham novel is a crackerjack popcorn movie that satisfies even though it radically changes the last half of the book. The novel's dynamic setup is intact: Mitch McDeere, a hot law graduate (a well-suited Tom Cruise), finds a dream job in a luxurious Memphis law firm. His superiors (Gene Hackman, Hal Holbrook) provide Mitch and his young wife, Abby (Jeanne Tripplehorn), with a house and plenty of money in exchange for lots of work, and maybe something more. Soon FBI agents (including a bald Ed Harris) encircle Mitch, telling him his firm has a sinister secret, forcing Mitch into a heck of a pickle. How Mitch deals with his situation is where the book and movie differ, yet by the time Mitch is running from bad guys with suitcase in hand, the movie delivers Grisham's goods. For Sydney Pollack's film, Mitch is more confrontational and heroic. Plot aside, the care Pollack put into this fair-weather thriller is unimpeachable, as is his cast. There is hardly a better all-star cast in any 1990s thriller, from Hackman and Harris in key roles to actors in smaller parts, sometimes with only a scene or two. Standouts include David Strathairn as Mitch's wayward brother, Wilford Brimley as the head of security, film producer Jerry Weintraub as an angry client, Gary Busey as a private investigator and Holly Hunter in a delicious, Oscar-nominated supporting role as Busey's most loyal of secretaries. The cast seems to have had as much fun making the film as we do watching it. It's slick Hollywood product, but first-rate all the way. --Doug Thomas

By John Kimble VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Mitch McDeere (Tom Cruise) has graduated 3rd in his class at Harvard, all the big firms are about to come calling. He has come a long way from a broken and humble family to make it to the brink of boundless opportunity, and touching distance of unlimited success. He and his wife Abbey, (Jeanne Tripplehorn) a school teacher, have lived the poor life for the duration of his studies, but her faith in him never wavered. As far as she was concerned he was always capable of making six figures.
However what they didn't expect was an offer from a smaller law firm, from Memphis, called Bendini, Lambert and Locke. They want Mitch more than anyone, and they claim they will beat any offer made, somehow they already know what his best offer is. Mitch and Abbey are invited down to Memphis for the weekend, all expenses paid, to have a look around the town and also to attend a party and meet the other partners of the firm.
It is here that things begin to seem a little odd, some things just don't fit, why exactly is it that, "the firm encourages children" and "while not forbidding the wives to work, the firm does not necessarily think it appropriate".
However, Mitch is won over, and it's not long before he and Abbey are heading south to their new house, white picket fence included, with a BMW in the driveway.
The firm immediately begins to swamp Mitch with work for the bar exam whilst introducing him to his unorthodox mentor, Avery. (Gene Hackman) Abbey is also kept busy with renovations for their new house, and gets to meet some of the other wives of partners in the firm.
However just as he's settling in Mitch is approached by an FBI agent (Ed Harris) who informs him that no one has ever left his firm alive! Some have tried, but all have ended up dead.

3.0 out of 5 stars WATCHABLE MOVIE 6 Jun 2008
Format:DVD
The movie an adaptation of John Grisham's Novel of the same name follows the pacey plot of the book till the last portion where it completely deviates from the book. After reading the novel and then watching the movie you ask, why Mitch took the trouble to steal the files if at the end he was only going to cut a deal with the Mafia? In the Novel the storyline centred on exposing the the Law firm as an arm the Mafia operating as a conduit for the Mafia in its money laundering operations. The movie on the otherhand makes the mafia a victim of the lawfirms illegal billing activities one wonders which is the more serious crime?

5.0 out of 5 stars Sinister going ons in the Firm 23 July 2014
By Valerie
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Over the years I have watched this film many times.The acting is good and the scenery is appealing both in Memphis and the Great Cayman Islands The law firm Tom Cruise goes to work for are rather sinister and as the plot unfolds it becomes obvious why. They are close knit community and wives are expected to stay at home with their children. The chase scene at the end is heart stopping. I would recommend this film to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Firm 20 Mar 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Tom Cruise in this thriller is amazing and nothing is given away by him before-hand, leaving you wandering what comes next and giving the 'movie watcher' much entertainment. It is a really scary mob-related movie and I think one is highly rated by myself and sister.

Having read the book, it was really good to see it bought to life on the screen. Very fast moving, not sure if I would have understood it if I had not read the book

The story line and script didn't demand as much from such a good actor as Tom Cruise, as eg The Rainmain, or even The Colour of Money? But he gives a comfortable performnce.
