Product Description

Product Description

Lieutenant Daniel Kaffee (Tom Cruise) is a Navy lawyer assigned to defend two men who accidentally killed a Private by asphyxiating him with a towel. Initially working out a quick and easy plea bargain with the prosecuting lawyer (Kevin Bacon), Kaffee is persuaded to investigate the case further by a determined colleague (Demi Moore). Together they take on the might of the army establishment, as the trail of evidence leads to the accused's commanding officer (Jack Nicholson).

From Amazon.co.uk

Astonishingly, Jack Nicholson's legendary performance as a military tough guy in A Few Good Men really amounts to a glorified cameo: he's only in a few scenes. But they're killer scenes, and the film has much more to offer. A US soldier is dead, and military lawyers Lieutenant Daniel Kaffee (Tom Cruise) and Lieutenant Commander JoAnne Galloway (Demi Moore) want to know who killed him. "You want the truth?" snaps Colonel Jessup (Nicholson). "You can't handle the truth!". Cruise also shines as a lazy lawyer who rises to the occasion, and Demi Moore gives a command performance. Kevin Bacon, Kiefer Sutherland, JT Walsh and Cuba Gooding Jr round out the superb cast. Director Rob Reiner poses important questions about the rights of the powerful and the responsibilities of those just following orders in this classic courtroom drama. --Alan Smithee, Amazon.com --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This adaptation by Aaron Sorkin (he made up The West Wing) of his own stage play is a superb piece of trial by movies. When a young, somewhat out of place marine private is killed, apparently murdered by two of his comrades, the JAG corps send Lt-Cmdr Galloway (an, as always, somewhat wooden, Demi Moore), Lt. Caffey (Tom Cruise, earning his 1st Oscar nomination in the process) and Lt. Weinberg (the always watchable Kevin Pollak) to investigate. Along the way they discover conspiracy, cover up, and a sociopathic general (yes, that's Jack).
Nicholson's hardly in it, but he lights up the screen when he's there, he's so good it's scary. Cruise is more than watchable in his role of the showy lawyer maturing faster than he wants, and it's a credit to him that in the final showdown, he keeps pace with Nicholson, never being outdone or pushed off screen. The film also boasts fine turns from Kevin bacon, Kiefer Sutherland and the late JT Walsh, but they could have found a better actress than Moore. Also the character can be somewhat irritating.
Sorkin's script is fantastic, sharp, witty, and explosive at the very end. Right, let's talk about that scene. This is a truly great showdown, right down to the angry, sneering speech from Col Jessop (it comes right after 'You can't handle the truth!'). This is just a very watchable, entertaining and involving thriller. It follows the standard lines of a courtroom thriller, through the 'it's a hopeless case' starting through to the dramatic turnaround, but it at least has a small sting in the tail. Watch it now. Are we clear?

The story of the investigation into the death of a US Marine is brilliantly portrayed in this film. Undoubtedly one of Jack Nicholson's finest roles (as the much-feared Colonel Jessep) and justly supported by that of Tom Cruise who is brilliant as the young, Harvard-taught lawyer, Lt. Danny Kaffe, who simply wants to settle the case without entering a courtroom, but the determination of Lt-Commander Joanne Galloway (Demi Moore) ensures that Danny's job is not going to be a pushover! The court scenes are compelling viewing and the outcome is in doubt right up to the final scene. Anyone with a vague idea about military life will enjoy this film. There isn't a bad actor/actress in it!

This is a good film but I suspect most readers will be interested in the concept of downloading a UHD film and that is what I will review. When you download a UHD film the film automatically goes from UHD to HD when the site senses the internet connection is not fast enough to cope. By pausing the film you can see whether the film is currently playing on HD or UHD and I could see the film was changing between the formats throughout playback. While the film looked great it was almost impossible to tell when you were watching HD or UHD. The issue being that UHD TVs upscale. It is true that the visual quality was first rate but I don't think it’s worth buying a UHD film to download. When Amazon start offering UHD for rental that would be fine but otherwise this is just too expensive at present. If you want to buy a UHD film then I think the best option is to buy a UHD Blu ray (this format should be out imminently) for guaranteed UHD playback.

This blu-ray totally lived up to my expectations. Whenever I replace a DVD with a Blu-ray there is always a risk that the upgrade will not be worth the expense (think Ghostbusters). Thankfully, with A Few Good Men there was absolutely nothing to worry about. The picture and audio is crystal clear.

Anyone who loves this film should buy this blu-ray...and sit there marvelling at how much Oscar talent is on the screen!

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.
