A Few Good Men Essay
In the film, A Few Good Men, characters such as the lead role, Lieutenant Daniel Kaffee
(played by Tom Cruise) are portrayed to be leaders in society. I believe the movie's main
focus was actually on how different a person can be because of something one person says
to them. I also believe that one of the movie's main ideas was how to work people with
words. This is especially true when Colonel Nathan R. Jessup (Jack Nicholson) is
interrogated by Cruise. The way that Nicholson answers Cruise's questions is with such
sophistication and knowledge that even though you know that he had his speech written out
for him, it was delivered with such eloquence that it allows the viewer to understand what
Nicholson is really feeling at that particular moment.

It is hard to watch a movie and really understand everything completely the first time
through, and you always know that you will catch different parts of it if you watch it
again. Especially in A Few Good Men this is very visible. There are many parts in the
movie that you will not understand the first time. One particular scene is when Cruise and
Lieutenant JoAnne Galloway (Demi Moore) are discussing the case when Cruise is in a rage.
He is saying things such as, "Oh, I forgot. You were sick the day they taught law at law
school," as an audience member the viewer knows that he will regret it. But, there are
many times in this scene where Cruise and Moore go back and forth at each other, and at
points it is very hard to follow what they are saying.
