Reeling Reviews
I expected a harder hitting indictment against the uncaring power of corporate America. Instead, we get a middlin' courtroom drama that lacks the intensity of such films as the 1982 Sidney Lumet/Paul Newman film, The Verdict.

Schlichtmann may have gone through this conversion in real life, but I just didn't buy it the way Zaillian presents it.
