Competent slow-burner of a lawyer conspiracy thriller written by John Grisham that has an intriguing story that still engages even if it is far-fetched. Denzel Washington and Julia Roberts made an excellent team together and are engaging to look on screen. The film has a classic style and is directed with focus on the plot and not action sequences and made by the "creator" of the conspiracy genre, Alan J. Pakula.
Great suspense, a little bit inferior than Grisham's book, but very entertaining. And the coolest things about this film are: Stanley Tucci as a cold villain, and Victor Mattiece, the main villain of the film and he never appears on the screen, everybody talks about him but he's never there. Worst thing about the film: Julia Roberts expression during Callahan's death, that is the worst acting ever, painfully funny.
