DVD Review: The Lincoln Lawyer

Everyone has a price.
Mobile defense lawyer Mick Haller (Matthew McConaughey) is slapped with an interesting case when a wealthy realtor, Louis Roulet (Ryan Phillippe) is accused of a terrible crime. At first, Haller is convinced he's innocent, but after a little more digging he realizes that he was picked for a purpose, and that he may have already put an innocent man in prison because of Roulet's previous crimes.

Lincoln Lawyer didn't look that interesting to me when it first came out, but I have to say the cast is impressive. Besides McConuaghey and Phillippe, there's Marisa Tomei, Michael Pena, Josh Lucas, William H. Macy and Bryan Cranston to top it off. McConaughey seems to be at his best when he's playing a lawyer. You might guess the ending before it comes, but watching the characters put all the pieces together is still very enjoyable.

Recommended: Yes

Grade: B
