Great legal drama
Jed Ward (Gene Hackman) is a lawyer who fights to protect people against corporations. His daughter Maggie (Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio) works for a big legal firm. A case comes up which pitches them against each other. To make matters worse she resents her father for cheating on his wife (her mother) in the past. When they start butting heads over the case all hell breaks loose.

Great legal drama with Hackman and Mastrantonio giving incredible performances in the leads. Either being politely legal to each other in the courtroom or tearing into each other in private they’re great. I’m no lawyer but the film seems to follow legal procedures and rules pretty accurately (unlike some legal dramas that completely ignore most of the them). Even better it doesn’t dumb down the dialogue and treat the audience like a bunch of idiots. It’s well-written, thought-provoking and brings up some very good legal and ethical questions. Sometimes it’s a little too slow and occasionally people seem to be giving speeches rather than talking but it still works all around. Also Colin Friels, Larry (Laurence) Fishburne, Donald Moffat and Jan Rubes give strong performances in supporting roles. This came and went pretty quickly in 1991 (probably because it had the most boring posters I’ve ever seen advertising it) but it’s a good legal thriller that’s worth catching. I give it an 8.

Class act
I’ve seen my share of courtroom drama movies, where after a while, some become so cliche’d, almost, as I am expecting to see Joe Mantegna in these. Class Action, though nothing spectacular, or earth shattering, is one court movie that somehow set apart from all those others. You just have to take a look at the cover to know why. We have the warring parties of father and daughter, both exceptional in the judicial system, locking horns in the courtroom. Hackman, representing, typecast, powerful, stubborn, ignorant sort (I think you get the gist here) tailor made for this role. Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, such a capable actress, holds her own too, like her character, as opposed to her father character. The issue here involves a 1985 (great year) car manufacturer, which I’m familiar with, who are in the habit of designing cars, that blow up on unwitting drivers, so we have a few pi**ed party, who don’t really want compensation, but justice, which was a moral, I really liked. You can’t put a price on a human life, and these companies are ones, who have to face those harsh penalties. A line that cracks me up, is the opening remark from Matt Clark, as the aging judge, when father and daughter, introduce themselves. The most memorable performance is of course from Hackman’s character’s wife. Mastrantonio is such a likeable character, who we really want to root for. Aussie Friels, who had a meal of a time in Darkman, plays her boyfriend, and is a kind of silky scumbucket here as Mastrantonio’s, collegue, but the movie belongs to effervescent Mastrantonio. Class Action, I like for it’s family angle of story, and the last beautiful frame between our two rivals, when the guards are dropped, shows these two for who they really are, a mutual admittance of their own flaws. Class Action has a straight simple plot, no real surprises, and there’s nothing earth shattering about it. It doesn’t ride on much, if just on ordinary, but it’s an ordinary I like, because this film has such true, precious morals, you can take with you, and that’s make it one of those rare finds, that shine out from all the others. That alone, is worth the admission fee.
