An average movie

Since there was a pretty good cast, I was definitely eager to check this movie. Back in those days, Joel Schumacher had a pretty decent reputation as a director but 3 years later, he would direct the major bomb ‘Batman & Robin’ and his career would never really fully recover. Anyway, this flick was something entirely different, one of those John Grisham’s book adaptations which were really p... read more

A street-wise kid, Mark Sway, sees the suicide of Jerome Clifford, a prominent Louisiana lawyer, whose current client is Barry 'The Blade' Muldano, a Mafia hit-man. Before Jerome shoots himself, he tells Mark where the body of Senator Boyd Boyette is buried. Mark escapes, and Clifford shoots himself. Mark is found at the scene, and both the FBI and the Mafia quickly realize that Mark probably knows more than he says. Mark decides he needs a lawyer, and goes looking for one. He finds Reggie Love, who also becomes convinced that Mark knows more than he says, but Mark isn't talking...

“Since there was a pretty good cast, I was definitely eager to check this movie. Back in those days, Joel Schumacher had a pretty decent reputation as a director but 3 years later, he would direct the major bomb ‘Batman & Robin’ and his career would never really fully recover. Anyway, this flick was something entirely different, one of those John Grisham’s book adaptations which were really popular back in the 90’s. Basically, it was one of the better Grisham thrillers but it was only slightly better in my opinion. Of course, the fact that I’m not a huge fan of the genre didn’t help either I guess. The main issue with those flicks is that they build up some intriguing court room settings but then, they add the most preposterous thriller elements to make it more spectacular but ” read more

"Katsottu: 25.7.2012 Shumi on kyllä vallan hankala tapaus ohjaajana. Tässäkin elokuvassa on viitteitä, että mies on tavallaan ihan kiva ohjaaja, muttei sitten kuitenkaan tarpeeksi omaperäinen. The Client on alussa ihan mielenkiintoinen ja ehkä jopa vähän rankkakin kuvaus, mutta edetessään se muuttuu täysin yhdentekeväksi sekä tylsäksi elokuvaksi. Paljon parempaan olisi ollut rahkeita."

Mustanaamio7's Movie Diary - Year 2011 (713 movies items)

"4.8. 2011 Excluding the good actors, Joel Schumacher's "The Client" isn't really any better than most TV thrillers, although it was actually released in theaters. The film doesn't take its fairly interesting themes seriously enough, and there are also too many unrealistic and exaggarated scenes. Also the ending is quite perplexing because it isn't actually that happy as it probably was meant to be."

Murder Most Foul (26 movies items)

"Another excellent Grisham adaptation. Mark is such a spunky little punk. I always liked his character. Plot: A young boy who witnessed the suicide of a mafia lawyer hires an attorney to protect him when the district attorney tries to use him to take down a mob family. Location: Memphis, Tennessee Fav Quote: "Dead men don't sweat now do they?" "
