Synopsis


The Lincoln Lawyer
Matthew McConaughey stars in this legal thriller as a low-rent defense attorney named Mickey Haller. Most of the time, Mickey barely keeps his head above water, representing low-life clients and working out of the back of his car. He thinks he's landed the case of a lifetime when he's hired to defend a rich playboy (Ryan Phillippe) who stands accused of rape and attempted murder, and eagerly accepts his new client and the massive payoff that's sure to come with him. But Mickey soon discovers that he's become ensnared in a twisted plot where no fee in the world is high enough to pay for the deadly workload, and his only hope of survival may just lay in his own skills as a long-practiced double-crosser. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Mathew McConaughey plays Mickey Haller, "The Lincoln Lawyer" which is derived from the fact that Haller has had his driver's license suspended and is forced be chauffeured around in his Lincoln. Haller is clever and charming with stern moral center and prides himself for his legal prowess. However, his legal and moral believes are tested when he's hired to defend a young clean-cut man from a wealthy family against some very serious crimes including attempted murder. Despite the client's convincing alibi, Haller soon suspects that his client might actually be guilty and even worse, that he may be guilty of a another crime for which one of Haller's former clients is now serving time for. It quickly becomes a cat and mouse game as Haller is forced to defend client despite his personal feelings and suspicions and after suffering a terrible personal loss. Ryan Philippe plays the client and is joined by Academy winner Marisa Tomei, William H. Macy, Frances Fisher and others. It has a little humor and many twists.

    The Lincoln Lawyer is a great movie that went under the radar when it was in theaters. This movie showcases Marisa Tomei and Matthew McConaughey's acting skills. Matthew McConaughey will likely get an academy award nomination this year for his performance in Dallas Buyers Club. This movie shows his growth as an actor. The movie is a thiller that features great character actors as well like country music star Trace Adkins. The movie is well constructed and had me into it from the first scene on. This movie is a perfect DVD to buy and have a fun Saturday night viewing party. I enjoyed this movie and would definitely recommend it.

    A Safe Legal Formula With Some Twists

    The Lincoln Lawyer is a movie based on a book. The books from the series end up having some fairly silly twists. As a movie The Lincoln Lawyer is a safe bet for you in terms of being entertaining, but is it the greatest movie? No, it's just safe and easy to watch entertainment. If you like Matthew Mcconaughey then you should enjoy this and when this blu-ray is on a discount price it's probably worth adding to a collection.

    Very good video quality and 7.1 lossless audio track. McConaughey does more than show up to look good. For me, this was the film he stopped relying on his looks and started turning in fine acting performances. After Lawyer McConaughey started taking on smaller films with more demanding roles like, Killer Joe, Mud, Dallas Buyers Club, and HBO's True Detective. This is a solid outing by McConaughey and fun movie to watch.

    I enjoyed this movie. One of the scenes show the lawyer driving to another courthouse with his chaffeur and the chaffeur tells the lawyer we have company. (30 hell's angels) he tells the chaffeur to pull over and they turn out to be his clients.. lol. It is a decent movie. I like the main actor(lawyer) and that is why I bought the movie. I will keep it in my library for when the Comcast reruns wear me out.... Worth watching.

    Matthew McConaughney really should take more lawyer roles because this may very well be the best character he’s ever played and the best work that he’s ever done, topping A Time To Kill and I enjoyed that movie very much. This is a slick and an intelligent film that is engrossing and keeps you guessing all the way through. The supporting cast is perfect.

    I had already seen this movie prior to purchasing the Blu-ray DVD. It was on sale at a great price and included a digital copy for me to add to my Vudu account. The acting is very good and there are some plot twists and turns that I won't give away. While not quite a family movie, it is good for 13 and older.
