“This story gets the viewer involved with it right away never lets up, with good performances all around, although Tommy Lee Jones stands out a bit above the rest. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThere are some outstanding action scenes in the first 30 minutes and if you have a 5.1surround system, it gets quite a workout. After that, the story settles down into a court battle. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIts politics are typical Hollywood: the government is corrupt with the main villain the National Security Adviser who burns a video tape that would clear a U.S. Marine colonel from being framed for murder. That colonel also is a black man which makes the story even more politically correct. Samuel J. Jackson plays that role, a Col. u0026quot;Terrry Childers.u0026quot; Jones plays his attorney, u0026quot;Col. Hayes Hodges.u0026quot; The two veteran actors play off each other very well.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIt gets even more dramatic when two other witnesses lie and make justice look almost impossible to attain in the case. But, dramatics aside, itu0026#39;s a good story and certainly an entertaining one. Once again, William Friedkin has directed a good movie.”
