To be honest, I always had some mixed feelings about this flick. First of all, even though the John Grisham’s books adapations were really popular in the 90’s, I have to admit those were quite entertaining but I also find them always terribly far-fetched.

" DVD- 2hrs. 21min. First Viewing It's a well-crafted thriller with a pair of compelling lead performances, but The Pelican Brief is also a dull, strained film that only starts to come together an hour-and-a-half in. So much of the story could've been streamlined, and it would've cut a lot of bloat and added much more focus."

" 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 modern conspiracy genre, Alan J. Pakula. The biggest problem for this film is the enormous quantity of conspiracy th"
