NotesPowerful and slick drama which will hold you to the end. Cruise is the bright, arrogant lawyer chosen to defend two young marines who are accused of killing another marine at the Guantanomo Naval Air Station in Cuba. Their defence balances on whether they were given the order Code Red. Enough is going on and Cruise tredding on Demi's toes keeps us entertained. The performances including Ms. Moore are good. Nicholson is both quietly and loudly menacing. In two shots lasting seconds Cruises banters with an old black newsvendor who wears an eye patch and a stick. This I consider is simply establishing Cruise's character's street cred and showing that he's not just a stuck-up Harvard lawyer son of a deceased Attorney General. (Compare Mel Gibson's encounter with black Vietnam Vet in a wheelchair in "Conspiracy Theory" above)
