The Lincoln Lawyer is good old fashioned fun!

   

OMG! Matthew McConaughey is back!  Back from the hell of poorly produced romantic comedies that focus mainly on how to have him remove his shirt and smile.  We always joke that he needs the money to buy new flip-flops.  Don’t get me wrong I love Matthew–I am not dead!  He has a disarming charm, but he is also a talented actor, that has proven to have what it takes in films like Frailty, Lone Star, A Time to Kill and one of my favorite guilty pleasures Reign of Fire (had to throw that one in there). 

The Lincoln Lawyer returns Matthew to fine form–with his shirt on.  He is the right fit to play Mick Haller, a defense lawyer that defends the sleazy from the back of his lincoln town car.  Now surround him with an excellent supporting cast–Marisa Tomei, William H. Macy, Josh Lucas–and you have something that doesn’t happen to much anymore…magic.

The story may be simple and predictable, but that does not matter.  You are 100% invested in the story and characters.  I enjoyed it more than I should have…I’ll admit it–which I believe speaks of the chemistry on film. 

I heard this is the first novel in a series of novels by Michael Connelly and now I would love to see Matthew reprise this role…and keep his shirt on!  Maybe on some other movies too–that would be nice.

About nediunedited

Who is nediunedited? A lover of cinema since the age of seven! All kinds–all genres. Films (TV and Books, too) have shaped my life–they were my escape, my inspiration and even my first role models. I do not rate my films in the traditional sense (no stars, grades, etc.)–instead I give you my opinion and my take on it–I do not give traditional plot summaries either, because I want you to go in clear–ready for your own experience. There is nothing better than discovering a fine film, without any other influence. (Personally, when I want to really see something I practice media shut out–I refuse to watch too many trailers, viral promos, reviews, etc–I have been known to cover my eyes and ears in the theater during trailers–LALALALA!) That’s me–hope you come by and visit! I will definitely make the rounds and find some of you out there, too.
