This perfectly cast masterpiece will have you gripped right from its opening scene. Kevin Lomax (Kuanu Reeves) is a brilliant young attorney who after an outstanding string of wins is offered a job at an elite New York law firm, owned and controlled by John Milton (Al Pacino). However there is much more to the deal than meets the eye. At about the halfway point you will realise that this is not just a run of the mill courtroom drama, there are far more sinister forces at work. The most sinister imaginable. Kuanu Reeves puts in a great performance in what is by far his best film bar The Matrix and Al Pacino as always is amazing playing a part that could so easily have been overdone. Starting at a normal pace and slowly building to an explosive ending, this is definitely one to buy.
