Pacino shines in a good Jewison film, 6 September 2004
"...And Justice For All" is one of those well-intentioned movies that
doesn't achieve the goal it was set out to accomplish. Having said
this, the film is a good example of the way some lawyers truly do care
about their clients and not intent on making a lot of money.
I now know why Al Pacino is considered one of the greatest film stars
in Hollywood. With roles in "The Godfather," "Scent Of A Woman,"
"Heat," "Devil's Advocate" and "The Insider," Pacino has proven he is
an actor with integrity and presence. The best thing about "...And
Justice For All" was the true and genuine care that Pacino's character
had for his clients.
The only thing I would change about this movie would be to narrow the
story lines because it had a few too many to follow. With the number of
subplots in this film, it was too difficult to pinpoint the main plot
and enjoy the film outright.
Overall, this movie was good and I recommend it.
