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.
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.
PROFANITY: 3 F-words; 18 S-words; 4 GD's a number of others. SEX/NUDITY: Brief sex without nudity. VIOLENCE: Bloody beatings and shootings. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Alcohol and tobacco. ACTION: None. COMEDY: Some comic lines.
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull 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 EbertFull Review Good But for what it is, 'The Lincoln Lawyer' is workmanlike, engagingly acted and entertaining.
USA TodayFull 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.
