The Lincoln Lawyer

The Lincoln Lawyer(2011)

Loved it. I'm biased though, I'm a sucker for courtroom/ legal/ drama/thrillers but I just wish they would quit with the love angles. Luckily this one doesn't have any of that corny shite. Or at least not much of it to ruin it. I love they way they've used the old clichéd Lawyer defends rich kid who's probably guilty and then has to find a way to walk the tightrope and do the right thing, which of course he does in the end. Or does he? I'll leave that up to the viewer.

I like all the Grisham adaptations, and courtroom dramas, so it wasn't such a leap for my to like this one. But I'd say this was one of the better one's. Anyway, I liked it. It had the drama, suspense, intrigue etc. we all expect from this genre, in bucketloads. In my humble, it's well worth watching.
