The Pelican Brief

Starring Denzel Washington and Julia Roberts

Directed by Alan J. Pakula

Release Date: December 17th , 1993

Man, what a boring movie. 2 1/2 hours long and nothing happens for the first hour. Well, except for an unintentionally humourous moment that the filmmakers probably didn't mean for (let's just say, you'll see it coming a mile away).  For a political thriller, the MacGuffin that moves the plot along is not explained very well and the action in the movie is far and few between. The only reason I'm giving the movie 2 stars is because of the good cast and their performances.
Don't waste your time with this movie.

Rating: * * of 5
