The Associate was a crap retread of the far superior novel The Firm.

The L.A. Times headline describing mayhem in the courtroom during a tragic hand crank camera accident, taking out six actors playing jurors, which sparked a fire that partially electrocuted the judge actor, which caused Shia to pass out from the stress and piss himself. And since Tony Scott had 12 other cameras running, he could still use the footage in the edit.

I kid. I kid. I say this as a fan, man. Tony Scott movies are always fun, even if you can predict the end from frame one (HI DEJA VU!!!!!).

Just what the world needs, another John Grisham adaptation. Hasn't that guy gotten tired of recycling the same old legal conspiracy plot again and again? You seen one Grisham movie, you've seen 'em all. Lazy is the word. Why Tony Scott would want to bother with tosh like this is beyond me.

I'm on board with this one. I thought that the comparisons with the Firm were terribly unfair. There's some good mileage in this book that could produce a film at least on a par with, and dare I say, superior to the Firm.

In this age of sequels, this is better than a "The Firm 2" type film. This could be a film that stands alone as a journey through burning professionals, corporate espionage and personal demons which for me sits nicely with some of the 'firms' that are my competitors.

Anyone who has worked in the machine, working 60 hours a week, while partners scoop the cream off the top and earn the coin will enjoy the fact they are not alone. It's a good yarn for our times.
