The Counselor

Ridley Scott Estados Unidos, 2013

msmichel's rating of the film El consejero

Watchable but empty exercise from Ridley Scott while not deserving the widespread scorn it got from the mainstream press doesn't really deserve defending either. Very weak script that never really seems to reach its destination with a mix of fair to middling performance from its 'all-star' cast. Technically strong (it is a Scott picture) its story and character weaknesses are just exaggerated by comparison. A miss.
