Over the summer, I saw this movie for the first time. It was automatically one of favorites. And, actually, this is not my usual "type" of movie, either. I usually go for more light-hearted, romantic comedies. But this movie was definitely worth watching. After seeing it once, I ordered it on DVD and have watched it countless times since then. The acting in this movie is awesome, and it always keeps you interested. I would recommend this movie to anyone. It's not a kids movie, though. Susan Sarandon has always been one of my favorite actresses, and she excels in this movie. This <more>
part was perfect for her. Overall, I gave this movie a 10/10. If you haven't seen it, trust me..it deserves it!!! Thanks, USA_original
Excellent legal thriller based on John Grisham's #1 bestseller (by Catherine_Grace_Zeh)
THE CLIENT, in my opinion, is an excellent legal thriller based on John Grisham's #1 bestseller. When Mark Brad Renfro was being pursued, I got really scared and tense. This was because I didn't want to see him get hurt. It was fun watching him fool the bad guys, though. In my opinion, Reggie Susan Sarandon was an absolutely excellent lawyer. After reading the novel, I thought to myself, "This movie should be good." To sum this up, the performances were top grade, the direction was flawless, and the casting was perfect. Now, in conclusion, if you are a fan of Susan <more>
Sarandon or Tommy Lee Jones, or you enjoyed John Grisham's title novel, I highly recommend this movie. You're in for a good time and lots of thrills, so see this movie today. You're in for a good time, so go to the video store, rent it or buy it, kick back with a friend, lock the doors and windows, and watch it.
i like that kid, Mark hes like hot even though hes like around his mid/late 20s i think he was really cute and hot in that movie The Client, he was like a gangster boy acting all oh I'm cool i cant be seen with you. my favorite lines were these: Lady At Desk: what do you want boy? mark: i need to see Mr. Beale. lady: where are your parents? mark: where are yours? lady: well... we only do the injured. mark: Wellll... I'll just go get hit by a truck and come back. me and my friend burst out laughing at that scene and re-wound the movie so we could watch that part again. another favorite <more>
part of mine was: Reggie: you want a lawyer? Mark: i want a lawyer, i hate lawyers, i said i need a lawyer
OK, so I acknowledge Susan Sarandon is my favorite actress of contemporary times have you ever seen her in a bad role? . I further confess to having a penchant for political-legal-type dramas/thrillers, and I will even go so far as to say that movies with Southern lawyers have a special fascination to many Atticus Finch, anyone? , perhaps because portraying Southern politics tackles greater sociological and civil issues that would otherwise carry less meaning.The Client is one such movie, and my favorite Susan Sarandon role. A great credible story, alternately epitomizing Southern politics <more>
while also placing the lead character as one who comes from that politic yet challenges it at every turn. Sarandon pulls this off beautifully as Reggie Love - in a world of men, particularly white southern men, she is somewhat weary of the cronyism to which she will never belong, yet solid enough in her own strength and belief in her convictions to hold her own against the mean ones.Great story, but if you've not seen it recently, watch it again, and particularly focus on Sarandon - approach it with these comments in mind, noting how she's totally "on" with this character and that character's surroundings, it'll add to the film's multi-dimensionality.
I was hooked from the start when, because of the great writing, acting and directing, I felt concerned about the characters even though I knew they really weren't in danger because they were the crux of the movie. And that pleasant surprise continued right to the end of the film with its clever writing that had me alternately enthralled or chuckling appropriately at plot twists. Another pleasant surprise was that it had a PG-13 rating. Aside from the rough language many teens actually use, there was no unnecessary gore, sex or violence. Ironic given the Mafia plot line. You get the <more>
point & feeling without the unnecessary graphic element most other directors would go for.I suspected it would be a great movie with Tommy Lee Jones and Susan Sarandon in it & I wasn't disappointed. The one deduction was for some obvious plot holes.The shattering information that the lead died as a teenager in real life of a heroin overdose just makes it more of a tragedy that his talent is gone. But he did himself proud with this, his debut.
Such interesting characters come from John Grisham (by bkoganbing)
Ironically enough I saw a Perry Mason episode a few days earlier where a young kid around Brad Renfro's age comes to Raymond Burr seeking legal advice and got taken on as a client eventually. I wonder if John Grisham saw the episode and got the germ of an idea for a book.Renfro is a most wanted individual. He saw a lawyer from New Orleans kill himself and before he died he revealed where the missing body of a Louisiana State Senator was. It seems as though organized crime put a hit on him and the discovery of said body will cinch an indictment against Anthony LaPaglia the number one <more>
contract killer in the New Orleans mob.So US Attorney Tommy Lee Jones wants Renfro. LaPaglia wants to silence him. It's all way too overwhelming for Renfro's mother, some poor white trash woman played by Mary Louise Parker. And too overwhelming for Renfro who finds Susan Sarandon as an attorney who will guard his interests.Susan Sarandon got a Best Actress nomination for this film and on the strength of her scenes as a righteous attorney guarding Renfro's interests and her very tender scenes with Renfro earning his trust which was not easy. Sarandon hits all the right notes and every emotion from her in this film rings true to life.Brad Renfro was a complete unknown who was cast in the film because he was a local kid and he does come across as a real kid and very well. Half of Sarandon's nomination should have been credited to him. Sad indeed that he proved to be another young Hollywood tragedy.Down in the cast in a small part that he really makes count is Ossie Davis playing a judge who is trying to sort out everyone's rights in this situation. Davis was a great authority figure on the bench.John Grisham novels have such interesting characters they seem to be almost ready made for a screen adaption. The Client is no exception here, you will be engrossed in the story within seconds of starting to watch this film.
Very Absorbing, But Could Have Been More! (by g-bodyl)
The Client is a good film with moments of extreme greatness especially for a courtroom thriller such as this. But there are also scenes where they should have been added into the editing room. The film was excellent in the beginning, slows to a crawl in the middle, and picks up in the end. If it stayed like the beginning, this film would have been flawless.After a 11-year-old kid and his brother witnessed a suicide, the kid hires an attorney to help protect him and his family from threatening mafia members and a stubborn Federal District attorney.The acting is very good in this film. Susan <more>
Sarandon seemed like she was born to play this role. She was just perfect! For a kid who never acted before, Brad Renfro was brilliant as the snobby 11-year-old.Overall, this is a slightly above-average crime thriller. Sarandon steals the show as her role of the attorney. Joel Schumacher directed a masterpiece compared to the Batman films he would take over after this film. I rate this film 8/10.
A young boy gets involved with a gangland lawyer who commits suicide, and is caught between the legal forces attempting to bring the gang to justice. (by Mickey-2)
"The Client", made in 1994 features the type of story that can happen in the pace of today's society. A young boy and his even younger brother slip off from school to indulge in youthful frivolities, and end up as witnesses to a Mob lawyer's suicide. The legal authorities are able to place the youth at the scene of the death, and they suspect the lawyer may have revealed some evidence about a murder that has gone unsolved. The mobsters in the city suspect this too, and the boy is caught between a rock and a hard place, wondering where to go to get help, and to stay ahead of <more>
the criminal elements stalking him and his family.Enter in the scene of total chaos two folks who are attempting to help the boy with his problem. Susan Sarandon has the role of a lawyer willing to risk her career for Ricky, the youth, and Tommy Lee Jones plays an ambitious federal prosecutor anxious to use Ricky's testimony to further his own career. Susan's character takes Ricky under her legal protective wing, as it were, and the two square off in an effort to make the young client, Ricky, turn evidence over to them. Ricky is determined to protect his family before doing anything to help the authorities.It's a superb suspense thriller, based on the John Grisham novel of the same name, and both Jones and Sarandon turn in great performances. The movie also benefits from support cast members such as Ossie Davis, Anthony LaPaglia, and as "The Client", Brad Renfro. Renfro shows some talent, and one hopes that he hasn't wasted the chance to have a good career. I gave the film a rating of 8/10, and would encourage viewers to keep one eye on the screen at all times.
It took me thirteen years to catch up with Reggie Love, the role that won Susan Sarandon Best Actor from BAFTA. In a way, I am glad I saw this movie now with a familiarity with Grisham stories and Sarandon performances. The story is a bit Disney, but Grisham's plot manages to be engaging nonetheless. Brad Renfro managed to win me over despite my outright aversion to child actors, especially the smart-mouthed kind. Mary-Louise Parker personifies trailer trash mom effortlessly. The cast is deep and extremely talented. It has the great Ossie Davis. It also has the Aussie, Anthony LaPaglia, <more>
back when he was a hunk. Pure entertainment with suspense. Susan Sarandon's Reggie is complex and not at all sappy. It could have easily gone that way in other hands. This is a movie that I could see again.
