The Pelican Brief (1993)

A law student uncovers a conspiracy, putting herself and others in danger. (IMDb)

This is a well-filmed legal thriller with a solid pair of protagonists (Washington and Roberts are in good form) and a decent amount of suspense and intrigue, but ultimately the dense political/legal talk that saturates the story makes it much too difficult to follow for it to be an enjoyable watch all the way through–and the drawn-out ending does little to redeem it.

6.3/10
