Goofs

The flags in the courtroom are reversed; the flag of the United States should be positioned to its own right of any other flag or standard, even on an American military installation on foreign soil. Also U.S. Army flags or standards, even the National Flag, should have spearhead pole finials instead of eagle pole finials. Eagles are reserved for civilian flags and the President of the United States. See more »

Surprisingly good
26 September 2004 | by (Little Falls, New Jersey) – See all my reviews

I seldom comment on a movie, but I so strongly disagreed with a prior comment on this movie, I felt I had to add two cents. I found this entrant far from boring. I have watched it four or five times, each time finding a new focus. The movie's idea is interesting, the conflict between the Sheens believable and well played, and the supporting cast excellent. Laurence Fishburne and James Marshall in particular are pleasures to watch. As the second of Sheen's two stints as a director I was impressed. Even the basic set works for me. And the music is so good that I continue to look from time to time to see if an actual CD is available. I believe that if you get your hands on this movie you won't be disappointed.
