Product Description

Amazon.ca

Smooth operator Mickey Haller (Matthew McConaughey) zips around Los Angeles in his chauffeured Lincoln town car, cutting deals and finding clients on the road. Then he lands a doozy: a rich real-estate heir (Ryan Phillippe) accused of the brutal assault of an escort. At first, the case looks like a breeze, but odd details start nagging at Haller until he recognizes an ugly connection to an earlier case--and realizes he's been set up in the strangest way. There are some deep implausibilities in The Lincoln Lawyer, but they hardly matter. This is a movie that cruises on charm and smart casting, from McConaughey as a man whose glib polish is betrayed by a streak of doubt, down to the detectives (solid performances from Bryan Cranston, Michael Paré, Michaela Conlin, and others) and lowlifes (Katherine Moennig as an unlucky hooker, Shea Whigham as a lazy snitch) that flesh out the legal world. Every character pops out, clean and distinct; this sort of web-of-deceit story line, full of twists and turns, depends on the audience clearly connecting all the players. Some moments get overstated or maybe don't make complete sense, but the zippy pace carries the audience over those bumps. The Lincoln Lawyer could easily turn into a television series, a sort of Rockford Files-esque mixture of procedure and puzzle making. Also starring Marisa Tomei, William H. Macy, Frances Fisher, John Leguizamo, and Josh Lucas as the prosecuting attorney who gives McConaughey some competition in the chiseled-looks department. --Bret Fetzer

Product Description

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.

-----

Dans «La défense Lincoln», McConaughey doit incarner Mickey Haller, un avocat de la défense qui passe sa vie dans sa Lincoln à chercher la petite affaire. Il décrochera le gros lot : il devra représenter un playboy de Beverly Hills accusé d'avoir défiguré une femme. Excité à l'idée des honoraires, il s'apercevra vite que ce "cadeau" est un pur poison qui pourrait lui coûter la vie.

4.0 out of 5 stars as good as Chandler's LA noir tales Feb. 8 2012
By Brian Maitland TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
First of all, I'll be upfront about this movie. I never got the title until I saw the extras. The extras explain that Matthew McConaghey's lawyer character works out of his Lincoln Continental car. Maybe I'm slow on the uptake but if the whole setup was this lawyer found it more convenient to work from his car, then I missed that. Even though there are lots of scenes of him going to and from court to wherever driven by his chauffeur, I just thought the open briefcase, the talking on the cell phone and the meeting up with the Hell's Angels clients on the road were all they were.

In another scene you see McConaghey going through old files in his garage so I just assumed he worked out of his home. Anyway, that's where I'm coming from.

The extras also pointed out by the book's author upon which the movie is based that the action occurs in this one justice area in Van Nuys, California, that houses various buildings such as a holding jail, courthouse and various bail bonds offices. In the movie I never figured that out as when they cut from scenes in each of these places you never really see McConaghey walk from one building to the next.

So in this sense despite a terrific movie that has great characters, tremendous twists and turns, great supporting cast (Marisa Tomei and John Leguizamo are among the "names") a very evil Ryan Philippe, I don't think the director who converted the book to screen if it took the extras (which are all pretty terrific) really was able to give us a sense that much of the courtroom and prisoner-lawyer scenes were all within virtually the same block.

The extras (and sorry to go on about them more than the actual movie but they really are terrific) also had the author Michael Connelly (a former LA Times crime reporter)take us on a drive around the LA of the Lincoln lawyer which was endlessly fascinating and very much Raymond Chandler-esque.

5.0 out of 5 stars Matthew McConaughey perfect as Haller April 19 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I do hope McConaughey will be recruited to play the role in subsequent adaptations, as he fits my mental image from the book to a T. Droll, understated and clever dialogue make for a captivating performance. A great story/

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than the novel Nov. 9 2013
By One singular sensation... TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
It isn't "Witness for the Prosecution", but it is in a league with "The Paradine Case" and makes some of the John Grisham films look pretty pale by comparison. Also, it is the clearest sign that Matthew McConaughy has more acting talent than almost anyone in films today.
The plot is almost spellbinding, but seasoned with enough humour to prevent it from getting bogged down with court ritual. You may know what is going to happen, but the getting there is most of the pleasure, and unexpected turns are frequent.
The film isn't a classic...yet. Give it a few years to season and it will be one of those great films that everyone wonders why it wasn't immediately recognized as fabulously entertaining...sort of like "Casablanca" or "Wizard of Oz", both initially thought to be bombs.
If you...when you...buy it, it won't sit on a shelf for long before it gets taken out for another viewing, and then another....and then...
