The Lincoln Lawyer - Movie Synopsis & Plot

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.

MOVIE REVIEW

The first few months each year are typically a terrible time for movies. After an injection of quality in December, Hollywood unleashes hell upon audiences, throwing garbage left and right and hoping things will stick. As brutal as these early months can be, there is a positive side: one or two films – typically ones no one saw coming – turn out to be well worth the price of admission.
