The Pelican brief though confusing at firtst with all its law terms is a brilliant film that should be watched by everone. You never know whose the goodie or the baddie and when you do it's very surprising. The ending is not to be missed as it is a real treat. Even if you don't understand what's going on the stunning performance by Julia Roberts will make you want to watch the film again because you want to understand. This may not be one of Julia's best but it comes very close. The chemistry seen on the screen between Julia and Denzel Washington is such a new experience that you don't want to miss.
