Nicholas Easter is a complicated man. Played by John Cusack, as the viewer you will get the wrong impression of the man, that is the intention.

The first thing you will be surprised at is the lengths at which Gene Hackman will go to secure "his" verdict, or the verdict that is required for his clients. Dustin Hoffman is the prosecuting lawyer, and together with his team, a cat and mouse game develops behind the scenes between Nick Easter, manipulating the jury, and Hackman, trying to continue controlling verdicts by clever jury selection and stealth tactics. Hackman will stop at nothing, he is big-time. Rachel Weisz plays the co-conspirator of Easter, and she is a great actress. You get a good feel for her vulnerability in the "big-time" against Hackman, which nicely sets up the twist in the plotline, and makes her character more real.

The jury scenes are interesting and each of the jurors characters are developed nicely so that when deliberations start you are almost second guessing what the characters are going to say.

This is a great film, with some great scenes between hollywood greats Gene Hackman and Dustin Hoffman. Yet another must for your collection, this is film that suits your tastes when you want to both watch and think about the movie, it is gripping and interesting from start to finish.

Great cast, great film. Enjoyed every minute!!
Hackman at his best in this John Grisham courtroom drama with more twists than Trumps Twitter account.
What's not to like, if you enjoy a good story well acted then you must watch this,

Ordered this in April but due to several circumstances was not able to try and watch until July. DVD would not play at all, an absolute failure. No other problems with my player so must be the DVD. Too late for refund but this is for info only.

If you like court room dramas you'll love this. Bit far fetched of course but what more can you expect?! It's a film of course and is a good film to watch. Good cast too.

No question: a strong cast, strong direction and stylish. Also no question: an implausible plot.
