4.0 out of 5 stars Poweful build up to an explosive final scene!, 4 Sep 2001
This review is from: A Few Good Men [DVD] [1993] (DVD)
Cut out the final few scenes and this film would have been classed as a mediocre production. However, Cruise v Nicholson in the courtroom make cinema history. Its quotable, emotional and no matter how many times you watch it it is still edge of the seat stuff. Rarely has a film been so sucessful at fully engaging the viewer in the plot of the film. Converting others to the cause will be difficult as they may be reluctant to sit through one and a half hours of Cruise's character comfortably developing as a person. But the story does have the kind of links that you feel clever for figuring out yourself. The DVD itself is disappointing. The conversion isn't sharp enough and there is a lack of any extras at all. Extras don't infulence my decision to buy a DVD, but in this case it would have been fantastic to see how the original trailers were put together. Nevertheless, we have no choice in the matter; everyone should own this film. The market leader in the genre of military courtroom drama.
