Few Good Men, A

Aaron Sorkin
Drama / 14m, 1f / Int. This Broadway hit about the trial of two Marines for complicity in the death of a fellow Marine at Guantanamo Bay sizzles on stage. The Navy lawyer, a callow young man more interested in softball games than the case, expects a plea bargain and a cover up of what really happened. Prodded by a female member of his defense team, the lawyer eventually makes a valiant effort to defend his clients and, in so doing, puts the military mentality and the Marine code of honor on trial. "Enormously entertaining."-N.Y. Daily News "Plenty of wise cracking humor and suspense."-Time Magazine "Fresh and adroitly updated and conditioned to our time and socio-political climate."-NY Post

I didn't find this story to be stimulating or entertaining. I didn't like any of the characters. The plot point was typical and the pacing was so slow. I should have DNF'd it to be honest. I get that this seems to have a very important message but I don't feel that the execution on this one was done efficiently. Not to say it wasn't done correctly. I'm just saying it wasn't done efficiently. In the end I was left bored and underwhelmed. I can't recommend this one.
