The Client Blu-ray Review | Blu-Ray

The Client is three quarters of a great movie, but that three quarters is enough to elevate it above every film adapted to date from the legal potboilers of John Grisham. A prolific author of airplane reading, Grisham writes improbable thrillers peopled by two-dimensional characters and decorated with just enough legalese and surface decor to lend the whole enterprise an air of authenticity. But take the stories from page to screen, and their true nature is revealed: They are pre-fab scripts, waiting for Hollywood to fit tab "A" into slot "B" and insert big star "C" with established director "D".

The story is too old to be commented.
