Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average The film might be a real hoot if everyone had gone over the top, but the actors all seem too awkward and uneasy for that to really happen.

USA Today Full Review
Below Average Despite a script by a Pulitzer Prize winner, a terrific ensemble cast and director Ridley Scott at the helm, 'The Counselor' is leaden, murky and hard to follow.

Washington Post Full Review
Below Average 'The Counselor' must have looked great on paper, but you can't believe a word of it.

NY Post Full Review
Poor 'The Counselor' is a great-looking and star-filled but lethally pretentious, talky, lethargic drama about drug smuggling across the US-Mexican border.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 49 moviegoers:
OUCH! These are some BAD REVIEWS!!! It's rare to see reviews this low from such a large percentage of moviegoers across all groups. Heck, even the movie critics agreed "The Counselor" is not a very good movie.
Sure, you might be one of the few lucky ones that will enjoy this movie, as a few moviegoers did, but is it worth your time and money?
