The Lincoln Lawyer is directed by Brad Furman, and it stars Matthew McConaughey, Marisa Tomei, and Ryan Phillippe in a legal thriller about a lawyer that's really good in defending people, but got himself in a predicament when his next client keeps lying to his lawyer. I wanted to go back to this as it stand out from most lawyer films in that it's both the client and lawyer that are in a very bad situation, and I rented this and Mud, even though that's a huge coincidence that I rented those films that have Matthew McConaughey in it. So let's get into business about why this film is guilty of being a really great movie. Matthew McConaughey gives a terrific performance in this that you understand why people pick him as their defense lawyer, and the rest of the actors are great too whether it be from Marisa Tomei, Ryan Phillippe, Michael Pena, or even Bryan Cranston in a bit of a short cameo. The story is really nothing groundbreaking as it does get predictable at times, but consider that McConaughey's character is very likable, you're sucked in the film and wanted to see how he gets out of this. It keeps the pace very tight, so it wasn't boring nor too fast, and it's very smart too. I also like the chemistry between Matthew McConaughey and Marisa Tomei as they are very sweet, and it feels genuine even though their characters are divorced from each other. The more I talk about this film, the more I give away the plot, so I'm just gonna end it here and tell you to go see it, and don't watch the trailers as they give away some important plot points.
