We watched "A Civil Action" for my wifes school project and found it quite revealing. It shows how a lawyer gave up everything to fight two large corporations to correct environmental problems they caused. The Lawyer was young, naive and unstructured which made his results less than stellar. However, he has since matured and won some very important cases to make companies responsible for poluting our environment (and killing people).

The product arrived on time in Excellent condition. Just like new!

Thanks.

I have never purchased a DVD set before so I wasn't sure how it would be packaged or arrive. I was very pleased. Each DVD had it's own spot in the case. Both DVDs work great; no scratches or skips. Thanks!

This was a pretty good deal on a movie I'd seen before (but not for a long time)--A Civil Action and Insider a movie about a whistle-blower in the cigarette industry. John Travolta starts out as an arrogant, money-hungry lawyer who ends up actually having a heart when he represents people who are fighting for their very lives against a company who could care less about the havoc they're wreaking on a small town. It will make you angry because you know this has happened before, is still happening and will continue to happen as long as people put money before others' welfare.

In The Insider, Russell Crowe does a good job of playing the whistle blower who's life starts falling apart when he tries to do the right thing. Al Pacino (not one of my favorite actors) is actually quite good in his role as the reporter who works with Crowe to expose the cigarette industry.

All in all, a pretty good double-feature for the money.

I got the Civil Action video because I was taking a "Civil Litigation" course at college and one of the assignments was to read the book. When I was looking for the book online, I found the video and since I belong to the generation of "Saturday Night Fever" and "Grease" obviously could not resist watch John Travolta in a movie. I cried like crazy when I saw him in the "General's Daughter" so it was great to see him again, this time acting as a lawyer.

Great legal thrillers that expose the corruption corporations trying to make a large profit over the good of the people.

I've seen "A Civil Action" many times and I notice something new each time. It is an amazing movie. I have often wondered why the main actor never received oscar mention. I highly recommend this movie for its foray into an area and subject matter that most americans do not like to discuss. The ending of this movie was quite interesting.

These are both gripping legal dramas/thrillers. The performances are all first rate--John Travolta is very good as the plaintiff's attorney in A Civil Action. Russel Crowe is the whistleblower in The Insider.

It's nice to have these two classics in one set. Both actors do a super job, and both movies are based on true stories, which makes them more compelling.

This is one good movie. You will not be disappointed on buying it. I've seen it about 5 times now and it still great.
