Few Good Men, A – Edited
Defence lawyers, Kaffee and Galloway are assigned the case of defending two US sldiers, accused of murdering a fellow soldier who was deemed to have ‘broken the code’. Kaffee and Galloway soon run into a brick wall (Jessup), who sees himself as a military ‘untouchable.’ The accused claim they were obeying orders (Jessup’s), and that the death was an accident. The two accused and their inexperienced lawyer go to trial and give the Colonial the fight of his life.
This was a really interesting and powerful movie. The first scene shows two of the best Marines in the unit sneaking into their fellow Marine’s room and taping him up, getting ready to beat him, and performing a “Code Red”—a disciplinary action carried out by fellow soldiers. But Code Reds are outlawed. The Marines are stationed in Guantanamo Bay Cuba, close to the line, and Col. Jessup believes that they live by their own rules down there. He was the one who ordered the Code Red. But the boy ends up dying. Now there is a big massive cover up, and Kaffe, the lawyer for the two soldiers, must dig deep to uncover the truth and possibly face a court marshal himself. It’s a compelling, classic movie that everyone should see.
