It was so good that I almost couldn't continue watching it because it made me so mad at how big business gets away with so much wrong doing. The performances are marvelous.

I liked this movie. Good cast! Good story. I didn't find it all that gripping, but for a real lawyer it would be!! Choosing ethics over money was kind of a fantasy but it was stretched almost to believability.

Not a bad story... i know it's based on a real one, but i'm never clear how much "reality" these types of films are. I'm cynical so i find it hard to believe a man in Jan's position would go that far... still, it would be a gentler world if more people did.

This film makes you wonder,,,
Is this how the system supposed to work?
WHY would "justice" has to be a gamble among those who decide the fate of others, in the cozy offices of the powers of the day, far removed from public view?
Too bad, too many people have to lose, before anyone can stop the injustice in derailing the public.

This movie is based on a true story where Travolta plays a lawyer who defends a class action suit against corporate America.

Reminded me of Erin Brockavich

In this Erin Brokavich style movie Travolta plays a lawyer trying to get a settlement in a tainted water class action suit, only to find his life completely ruined by the time the case is settled.
Based on a true story, this movie shows the battles lawyers face while filing class action suits.

14+ with supervision (swearing)
