Matthew McConaughey certainly held my attention, his charactor was very entertaining, creative, sexy, surprising with every detail played out like this was such a natural part for him. Working from his car and his detective good guy charming attitude really made the movie!!
I felt that it was a true story! Wonderful!!

McConaughey carries the film, once underrated as an actor he rarely misses anymore. Connelly writes about the dark side of LA and his books are better than movies or TV shows but if he can get McConaughey then I hope they continue the Lincoln Lawyer series in movies.

It had been years since I read the book or saw the film. Refreshed my mind on what story was about & how it ended. I used to like this actor...

Watch out he's in a Lincoln again but he wasn't driving. The accused was a good opposing character to the lawyer, from the beginning he oooz bad vibs. I like the he said she said story line. The viewers have to pick a side. It was a pretty entertaining movie.

Usually, films about lawyers are quite dry. Matthew McConaughey makes this film quite entertaining. I would rate "The Lincoln Lawyer" at 4.0 stars.

It's nice to see that author Michael Connelly has finally secured a film deal for one of his books. His books read like television scripts.

A fairly good movie about the sleezy side of the criminal law profession and the human garbage they represent.
