Storyline Heading
Mickey Haller is a Los Angeles criminal defense attorney who operates out of the back of his Lincoln sedan. Haller has spent most of his career defending garden-variety criminals, until he lands the case of his career: defending Louis Roulet, a Beverly Hills playboy accused of rape and attempted murder. But the seemingly straightforward case suddenly develops into a deadly game of survival for Haller.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Thriller - This is a courtroom mystery drama/thriller aimed at an adult audience. Fans of Matthew McConaughey should enjoy this dramatic showcase; Marisa Tomei's screen time is fairly limited. Violence, language, and adult subject matter makes it inappropriate for children.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good The Lincoln Lawyer is an enjoyable piece of pop entertainment - a motion picture thriller with the feel of the numerous John Grisham adaptations...

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good But for what it is, 'The Lincoln Lawyer' is workmanlike, engagingly acted and entertaining.

USA Today Full Review
Good A street-smart charmer, Mick is as comfortable in Los Angeles's seediest corners as he is before a jury. And Mick, as embodied by Matthew McConaughey, is a near-perfect match of material and actor.
