Based on John Grisham's book. "The Client" starts promising, but soon after it can't keep-up the tension. It's entertaining & amusing but it unintensionally de-rails into a comedic rather than a dramatic & thrilling direction (keyword: stupid Mafiosi, stupid FBI). That's the issue here, the lack of convincing 'real crime'. Overall medicore. 2,5 stars.
