Adapted from Michael Connelly’s book by the same name, “The Lincoln Lawyer” is a savvy film. Matthew McConaughey is perfect as Mickey Haller, an L.A. criminal defense attorney who does a lot of business from his 1988 Lincoln Town Car. This legal thriller is filled with hardcore lowlifes and pure evil, but Haller is only afraid of having put an innocent man in prison. He back downs from nothing but despises surprises. His ultra rich client, Louis Roulet (played by Ryan Phillippe) is a real piece-of-work, manipulative and warped. Marisa Tomei plays Haller’s ex and is sweet and sassy as ever. All-in-all, “The Lincoln Lawyer” is a very satisfying movie.
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars.
(Please note: Danny and I don’t intentionally go to “B” or “C” movies, so most of my reviews lean toward the positive.)
