Your attention please ! Get your giant tub of pop-corns to remain glued to ‘The Firm ‘ , as it captures your Eye-balls , steadily.
Firstly , John Grisham‘s novel , ‘ The Firm ‘ is popular , Secondly , the Tom Cruise movie adaptation is even more popular due to Tom Cruise’s persona . AXN is premiering a television series, which is bound to be popular i.e. 3rd time lucky. Many of us know the story of ‘The Firm ‘. And the series by AXN has added another dimension.
Although AXN’s new John Grisham series is a bit slow, it gathers momentum.
As the series unfolds …. 10 years after McDeere has been in witness protection for taking down the Memphis firm of the original. The opening scene captures viewers instantly. Mitch is running for his life, chased by three nefarious suits through D.C. until Mitch tells Abby the code-red news: It’s happening again. All of this is set against the McDeeres’ determination to live outside of the witness protection program. But it soon becomes clear that the criminals Mitch crossed a decade ago have very sharp memories, and that is going to force changes in the McDeeres’ lives. In the end, Mitch has to make a significant decision about his career.
Mitch is an old-school, self-made hero, worked hard to graduate near the top of his class at Harvard. The Firm‘s straightforward, one-man-against-the-system story feels quite optimistic and cathartic. Common man lawyer fighting against Corrupt-system. Though not as handsome-hunk as Tom Cruise, Actor Josh Lucas’s intelligence shines through his cold-stares and inimitable body-language.
AXN’s legal thriller ”The Firm” is such a mind-blowing series , that even two hours seem like only one hour , in relativity . The viewers are spoiled for wanting still more.
All of us, Indians love the Amitabh Bachchan style black horse, fighting for truth and justice.
Tune in to the show on SUNDAY, FEB 19, 9 P.M., Action on AXN!!!
