Michael 'Mick' Haller is a slick, charismatic Los Angeles criminal defense attorney who operates out of the back of his Lincoln Town Car. Having spent most of his career defending petty, gutter-variety criminals, Mick unexpectedly lands the case of a lifetime. However, what initially appears to be a straightforward case with a big money payoff swiftly develops into a deadly match between two masters of manipulation and a crisis of conscience for Haller.

Made to conform to established values in Hollywood depictions of the justice system. There's the slick lawyer who manages to stay out of trouble most of the time, the dubious client, some characters around the lawyer who are in danger, and so on. Never really good, never bad.

McConaughey is almost always likeable. : )
Typical Follywood film fare, but good acting, and some interesting plot lines.

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...
