  1. FISCHER's rating of the film The Rainmaker

    A Memphis, Rudy Baylor, un jeune homme candide, fait ses premiers pas d'avocat dans un petit cabinet qui a des liens étroits avec la mafia ..... De l'excellent travail ! www.cinefiches.com

  2. Dalibor's rating of the film The Rainmaker

    Satisfying court drama, even if losing some of it's well-held integrity by the end. Couple of characters, notably Rourke's and Glover's, seem somewhat unfinished. And even though the film doesn't venture too much into caricature and banal moralizing, one can't help to think how much better would this topic be explored in hands of someone like Lumet.

  3. Samuel Righi's rating of the film The Rainmaker

  4. Mark O. Stack's rating of the film The Rainmaker

    A movie about a green lawyer taking on a crooked insurance company loses screen time to a romantic drama about a green lawyer falling for a battered spouse. Danny Devito gets lost in the resulting shuffle.

  5. Dogukan4Ever's rating of the film The Rainmaker

  6. J.J. 'Jake' Gittes's rating of the film The Rainmaker

    A "rainmaker" is a lawyer, who wins his case & achieves a payout. Once you know this, you know the movie. So, it is about other things (1) how he does it against all odds (2) about the questionable American system of justice (3) about moral value. There are a lot of cliches & stereotypes in this, but the excellent cast, the well constructed story (3 in 1) & a great director more than offsets them. Above average.

  8. Federico Di Folco's rating of the film The Rainmaker

    Difficile che dai libri di Grisham venga tratto un brutto film;poi se lo metti in mano a Coppola il rischio è quasi nullo.Il bello di questo lavoro è che non segue il cliche' abituale dei lega-thriller hollywoodiani:arringhe perfette,immagini sensazionali e toni sopra le righe.Quì tutto risulta più calibrato,più pacato,insomma più vero.Forse troppo politicamente corretto,ma è un buon Francis che merita la visione.

  9. orangey's rating of the film The Rainmaker

    Coppola's penchant for 40-50's noir and the all star cast save this otherwise cliched story

  13. Wortzik's rating of the film The Rainmaker

    One of the most overlooked films of the 1990's, great performances from Matt Damon, Danny DeVito, Mickey Rourke, Claire Danes. Dean Stockwell (one scene only) and a surprisingly good performance coming from Jon Voight, one of his greatest from more recent films. The plot is very intriguing, interesting, it tells a lot about the judicial and lawyers world without being boring. A very agile Coppola!
