The Lincoln Lawyer

Matthew McConaughey, Ryan Philippe, Marisa Tomei, William H. Macy, Michael Pena, John Leguizamo and Josh Lucas . . .if these names catch your eye it’s for a good reason.  They made a great film called, “The Lincoln Lawyer”.  This movie is a legal thriller and Matthew McConaughey plays a very slick defense attorney named Mick.  His character is the go-getter of the court room and for a price – he will take any case and he is convinced he can win.  He somehow gets involved in a very high profile case where a wealthy young client, played by Ryan Philippe, is accused of a heinous crime.  Where it goes from there is a thrill ride a minute!!  This film is smartly done and smartly acted!!  I really enjoyed Matthew McConaughey playing this character and would love to see him reprise this role.  It was very entertaining and it kept me on the edge of my seat and had a few surprises that I never saw coming!!
