Sometimes I can't believe why Japanese movie distributing
companies consider before distributing movies which
treated controvercial matters such as Insider
Thank You For Smoking.
To changing the treating object in the movie,
NRA critisized Hollywood showbiz world should be liveral.
Changing subject between cigarret to gun might be influent
not only progress also result of the movie.
It can focus on "system of jury" and "we would
take advantage of system of jury".Anyway...
Hackman and Hoffman were roommate their early years however
they didn't have oppotunity to work together.
I thought this time,Hackman stole the limeright away from Hoffman.
Of cauce Cusack play his role was well.
I was difficult to figure out why Nick slipped into all of USA's
gun trial as a jury.
The city of New Orleans is a fascinating setting for this film but wrong because

Mark Haskell Smith
(Dr. Eugene Sands)
FBI agent Molder in X-file.
He shot this movie off season of X-file.
The plot was OK but the script doesn't manage to lift the story
up into something that is really strong and engaging.
Duchovny's actual performance wasn't as bad as his voiceover
but he doesn't exactly manage to lead the film.
Hutton struggled with a lack of character and how to play villain.
Regardless of good performances and Jolie's role was no character.
She wouldn't appeal her ability I thought.
Overall this was very much a workmanlike thriller.
The plot is good but the script can't do anything with it
