The Lincoln Lawyer Preview

Being a huge Michael Connelly fan and having read the book, seeing the movie was a no-brainer. Matthew McConaughey as defense attorney, Mick Haller, is a huge plus. A lot of people assume that because of the title, Lincoln is a location. Not so. It is a reference to his office, as in Lincoln Town Car. That's right. He practices law out of the back seat of his car.

Haller is always on the lookout for that big rich client that will make his life a lot easier, from a financial standpoint, and thinks he may have found it through a referral from a friend. However, it doesn't take long for him to figure out that things are not quite what they seem. In fact, they're a whole lot worse.

Lincoln Lawyer is a tight courtroom thriller that also has all of the intrigue of a tense detective story. You'll stay on the edge of your seat, I promise. McCanoughey has a great supporting cast which makes things even better. This is one movie that is well worth the price of the ticket.

I give it my two thumbs up!

FYI - Out on DVD July 12, 2011 - Pre-order your copy!

Michael Connolly wrote a best selling novel called "The Lincoln Lawyer". I did not know that there was a movie with the same name. What has John Grisham got to do with the production?

OMG! Thanks for catching that Billrrr!!! I wrote several reviews, and Grisham belonged in another review. Usually something like that would not get by me. Please forgive the error!

Thanks for posting the review. I read all Michael Connolly offerings and those of Lee Child and am always hoping their books will be adapted to film. I am going to watch "The Lincoln Lawyer."
