The Lincoln Lawyer 
Managing to be both glossy and gritty, The Lincoln Lawyer is one of the most exciting (and stylish) films of the year so far. Retro-meets-modern thriller is engrossing and unpredictable. Matthew McConaughey puts the bland rom-coms on hold for a minute to play Mick Haller, a man so charismatic and confident it’s scary. Besides McConaughey, the film boasts a terrific male cast that includes Ryan Phillippe, Josh Lucas, Michael Peña and John Leguizamo. This doesn’t mean The Lincoln Lawyer is without flaws. Funky soundtrack gives off a nice LA vibe but the awful flashbacks make this look like Miami. CSI:Miami, that is (or any of those terrible police procedural shows). The last act is completely rushed and it features one twist too many. Coming just a couple of minutes before the end, said twist is pointless and doesn’t move the plot forward in any way.
Really enjoyed this film. Can I plug my review here? lol
Of course you can, but keep in mind you’re my only reader haha
Don’t be so sure. Friends are always telling me they read my reviews even though they don’t leave comments. 🙂
Hahah, OK then. Thanks for making me feel a bit better 🙂
