Probably the most underrated, polarizing film of last year. Ridley Scott in top form, and Cameron Diaz's best performance since Vanilla Sky.

The biggest Mystery about this movie was why was this made.The Counselor. This is by far the most boring movie of 2013, the Directing and the acting are average but the story is very hard to follow and the characters are shallow. and this movie will get a 0 and a half out of 4 star's "boring and forgettable movie".

great cast but it leaves you empty

Great cast, about a guy who gets mixed up in the cartel. The film is very talky yet its hard to know what really going on a lot of the time, the dialogue is full of almost poetic wise words. with long passages of pointlessness its like the writer wrote the best wise words he could but then made the mistake of using them for most of the characters. The lead up to the end is weak , so much is said in this movie yet so much is unexplained and feels empty. then it just ends . Leaving you thinking wow that turned out depressing. it offers no hope no revenge no follow up no redemption no nothing except bleak reality. which would be fine and a different ending to most films if it was not for the fact that the movie had very little middle story or action. it was in short too empty to just end ...

Escapism at its absolute tardiest.

I am still at a loss for words.
I have seen good movies, and I have seen bad movies, and I knew when to call the former and ladder good and bad. But frankly, I don't know what to call this anti-matter of motion pictures, because this movie is absolutely horrible.

The way this movie turned out is unacceptable. The acting is sloppy, the tone and pace are nonexistent, the direction is mind-bogglingly bad and the screenplay is the worst part.

I wasn't a big fan of No Country for Old Men and I heard All The Pretty Horses wasn't exactly good, so I don't look upon Cormac McCarthy very positively. Apparently, this was his first screenplay, and he has not a shred of sense or style to show for his work. He wrote every single scene as if it were a novel, and that made it some of the most conf...

This 'Counselor' Should Be Disbarred!

I'm not sure what's harder to believe here; the idea that Cormac McCarthy could deliver such a horrible script; that Ridley Scott is capable of directing this turkey of a film; or that Brad Pitt would even agree to star in this mess. If these guys were aiming to recreate another 'No Country For Old Men', they missed the mark entirely. The whole film is not much more than a gab-fest with individual actors delivering monologues that are the equivalent of metaphorical vomit. Javier Bardem seems to be channeling 'Jim' from the old 'Taxi' TV series with the wild hair and the nonsensical observations. Michael Fassbender's portrayal of the lead character, a lawyer who's decided to step over into the criminal wold to fix his financial situation, gives us a character that continually asks others w...
