For all the money and talent lavished on filming The Firm, the best seller by former lawyer John Grisham, you can’t help feeling let down. The book moved at turbo speed. At two and a half hours, the movie crawls...

By the end, despite McDeere's breathless explanations during phone calls in the middle of a chase sequence, I was fairly confused about his strategy. But I didn't care, since the form of the movie was effective even when the details were vague.
