I won't recap all the raves from others, but I will say that having read the book first it feels like the production ran out of money and left out the real ending in the book.
For example, anyone ever wonder what Quinn's hold over Brennan was? They allude to it in the movie, but the book makes it clear and it's important.
Weren't satisfied that justice was served to ALL parties? The book has a very satisfying, albeit bittersweet wrap-up.
I cannot believe Sidney Lumet would have left us hanging that way with such a cop-out ending so I have to believe this already modestly-budgeted film ran out of money and was forced to make some compromises and wrap up the story with an abrupt and downbeat ending as opposed to a satisfying and realistic one.
