Good Movie, Great Book, Stop Picking on Matthew !
WOW ! Reading the reviews on this movie were more about Matthew M. being cast and his supposedly poor films. People do you not recall “A Time To Kill” he was very great, “Frailty” very good, very scary. “Thirteen Conversations About One Thing” Amazing. “Ed TV’ great and sweet.and more where his shirt stays on. Cut it out!!!
The movie is good, it stuck to the book and did not get bent of Michael C’s concept. I truly dislike when a book is made into a movie and manipulated.
As for Matthews performance, he seems a little more laid back then as in the movies mentioned above, but I do enjoy seeing him play the clever lawyer type.
The Ultimate Courtroom Drama Trope Collection
Mick Haller (Matthew McConaughey) is a high profile defense attorney. He seems to have everything going for him, until he takes up the case of a wealthy client accused of murder. The subsequent string of events that unravel makes him question his morals and beliefs, and yadda yadda yadda bla bla bla. Something evil psychopath trying to get away with murder something something cat and mouse game turns into a court room drama and presto we get the Lincoln Lawyer. It has all the underpinnings of what makes the great courtroom dramas great, so it in turn must be great too, right?
It is amazing to see a product focusing so hard on delivering thrills and failing so immensely in the process. I’m sure that whoever wrote or directed this must have been an avid fan of John Grisham, because he or she took every last trope from the books and did absolutely nothing with it. The tonal dissonance doesn’t become totally clear until the later stages of the movie, but by then it is hard to even get what the point of the movie was in the first place. The last scene ends with McConaughey proverbially walking into the sunset while his former client is being non-proverbially beaten to death by his posse. Cue shootout and the final scene in which our hero is united with his family. It would all be offensive if it wasn’t so hilariously misguided.
The sole saving grace of this movie comes from McConaughey. It’s not the performance of a lifetime, but he’s doing his best with what he has been given. The courtroom scenes in the latter half are interesting to watch, but just only because he sells the triple agent role Haller finds himself in. Is it worth sitting through two hours of exposition dialogue and sigh inducing stereotypes to get there? Probably not. Let us remember then The Lincoln Lawyer as the start of McConaughey turn to drama acting, because that is about all of significance this movie will probably be remembered for.
