News & Interviews for The Lincoln Lawyer
Critic Reviews for The Lincoln Lawyer
It's really just a solid courtroom drama, but these days moviegoers should take what they can get.
It has nothing to do with the capital of Nebraska or the former president. While you're watching it, though, you'll wish it did.
There's a reason potboiler paperbacks don't make good movies -- there's too much outlandish plot, even for Hollywood.
Just when you thought Matthew McConaughey had settled into pre-retirement content to play the (dry-aged) beefcake in a string of dippy romantic comedies, the actor comes roaring back with some real acting.
That the premise of the film doesn't make a ton of sense shouldn't dissuade you if you're in the mood for a little escape.
The Lincoln Lawyer is not a feat of genre-breaking design. But it is a well-oiled machine.
Audience Reviews for The Lincoln Lawyer
This entertaining crime thriller is not very original but doesn't disappoint either, as it offers a pretty interesting plot with its typical, expected twists and some good performances - except, of course, Ryan Phillippe, who is mediocre and inexpressive as usual.
Great legal thriller with an excellent cast and plenty of twists. The major premise probably does not make all that sense but makes for an enthralling and entertaining case. Even if the final revelation falls a bit short, McConaughey makes it worth your time.
A magnificent courtroom drama/thriller that serves with the same extremities as the hammer of justice. The Lincoln Lawyer is mostly held up by the enigmatic performance from McConaughey as well as the supporting cast. With it's courtroom splendor and gritty thrills, the film is extraordinary. 4/5
