Cruise is good, Moore is okay, but Nicholson is excellent in a role of a lifetime for him. That climactic courtroom scene, though done better in many other films of its type, is still a stunning one. The only problem is its tendency to overplay certain scenes, so as to heighten the dramatic impact. Some of them tend to be unintentionally funny (like Cruise's drunk scene). But that in itself doesn't make this bad. Fine performances and an interesting story keep things flowing.
