The Lincoln Lawyer Review

Of course this movie came out a couple months back but it was still in my to-watch list so I had to watch it. Matthew McConaughey plays a criminal defense lawyer who gets a high-profile case. Ryan Phillippe plays Louis Roulet who is accused of brutally assaulting and raping a prostitute. The title of the movie is derived from the lawyers method of work, where he works out of a Lincoln Town Car driven by a former client working off his legal fees.

I won’t go into detail with spoilers but I enjoyed watching Matthew McConaughey. I always enjoy his movies whether they’re really great or not, he has a style of acting that is charming and draws the audience in.

This movie is based on the novel by Michael Connelly, which I haven’t read so I can’t make any comparisons. Overall the movie is pretty good, it’s nothing dramatic and a little bit predictable but any Matthew MacConaughey fan or mystery-thrillers would enjoy this film.

8/10
