Top Ten Modern Military Movies #4
A Few Good Men (1992)
Aaron Sorkin and Rob Reiner teamed up for this Jack Nicholson/Tom Cruise classic, based on Sorkin’s stage play, that finds the two leads on opposing ends of a case surrounding two Marines charged with the murder of a fellow Marine.
A Few Good Men finds both actors at the top of their game as a game of accusations and smear campaigns gets underway, laced with crisp Sorkin-style dialogue and patented Reiner sentimentality. It also manages to underscore what makes a Marine a Marine, even under the most dire of accusations.
