In the gripping thriller "The Lincoln Lawyer," Matthew McConaughey stars as Michael "Mick" Haller, a slick, charismatic Los Angeles criminal defense attorney who operates out of the back of his Lincoln Continental sedan. Having spent most of his career defending petty, gutter-variety criminals, Mick unexpectedly lands the case of a lifetime: defending a rich Beverly Hills playboy (Ryan Phillippe) who is accused of attempted murder. However, what initially appears to be a straightforward case with a big money pay-off swiftly develops into a deadly match between two masters of manipulation and a crisis of conscience for Haller.

    I’m a huge fan… I love this movie! I’ve watched so many times, yet it always has the same effect & potential of capturing my full attention as if watching for the 1st time! Remarkable storyline that’s well thought out; never boring filled w/excitement…anticipation & has the ability to capture the viewers attention at all times. Excellent portrayal of characters!!

    One of the few times when a movie is as good as the book!!!
  • Lincoln Town Car - Law Office

    The mobile office - a lincoln town car. An RV might be better but will not have the class. This movie is interesting - it distinguishes between real estate attorneys and defense attorneys.
  • Not your every day court case!

    By Com007et
    This movie has a little bit of everything, including an unusual romance and a different presentation of a defense attorneys clients that added some great humorous moments to the story line. That’s the biggest reason that I gave the movie five stars - a serious court drama with several side stories that somehow all intersect beautifully. As the movie plays out you keep thinking you know where it’s headed, and end up only being half right as another element comes into play. Overall, a great movie that doesn’t rely on blood, sex, car chases or explosions to keep you watching.
  • Must buy
