The Lincoln Lawyer review
Daniel Corleone - wrote on 07/01/12
A defense attorney Mickey Haller (Matthew McConaughey) rides in a Lincoln and defends those conviceted of a crime. His latest client is a prominent Louis Roulet (Ryan Phillippe) with connections. Mick is aided by private investigator Frank Levin (William H. Macy) and has a child with prosecutor Maggie McPherson (Marisa Tomei). The film's story seems to be slow, and the real plot delayed. Soundtrack and direction were good but this critic feels McConaughey is not that impressive, and we the viewers are captivated with the premise with a slight twist. For courtroom dramas, 12 Angry Men, To Kill A Mockingbird and A Few Good Men were more entertaining. Nevertheless, despite The Lincoln Lawyer's snail paced storytelling and talented cast, it is worth a watch for its ideals of transformation for good, family and persistence.
