  1. DSPRKY's rating of the film The Counselor

    If you thought Ridley Scott's action films were bad, check out this turgid, clunky mess! Just because Breaking Bad successfully depicted cartel à la Shakespeare doesn't mean everybody deserves a license to try.

  2. Thomas Dods's rating of the film The Counselor

    I am an apologist for this film, which was always destined to be over hyped given the talent involved. The script is admittedly weak overall, but there are some unforgettable sequences, especially the one involving Cameron Díaz and a car windscreen.... Thst one will stay with me forever.

  3. Jérémy Poirier's rating of the film The Counselor

    Definitely way better than on my first viewing. The director's cut really helps to improve, clarify and justify what Scott and McCarthy were trying to accomplish. I see the whole thing as a satirical farce. A joke buried deep down inside the thriller genre and a morality tale filled with philosophical talks. Everything is absurdly over the top. Just look at Javier Bardem's crazy hair. A wild and misunderstood gem.

  5. brunomundel's rating of the film The Counselor

  7. Enrico MF's rating of the film The Counselor

    You can make no distinction between what he is and what he does.

  8. elenagallen's rating of the film The Counselor

    A star for the car fuck scene.

  10. Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film The Counselor

    Un super casting où Cameron DIAZ, Penelope CRUZ, Brad PITT & Javier BARDEM distancient -de loin- Michael FASSBENDER. Mais où est la profondeur de Cormack MC CARTHY sous le vernis de cette production hollywoodienne? ... A great cast, where Cameron Diaz, Penelope Cruz, Brad Pitt and Javier BARDEM distance by far Michael FASSBENDER. But where is the depth of Cormack MCCARTHY under the gloss of this Hollywood production?

  11. Nathan Grey Hollis's rating of the film The Counselor

  12. Will Carnes's rating of the film The Counselor

    The Cormac McCarthy script is cringe-worthy: all that flat "philosophical" dialogue! Still, Cameron Diaz having sex with a car is easily one of the weirdest scenes ever. So... props for that?

  13. film_lies101's rating of the film The Counselor

    Enjoyable in a trashy sort of way

  14. J.J. 'Jake' Gittes's rating of the film The Counselor

    Disappointment. For me Ridley Scott messes it up. He got a great cast in hand. He got an interesting story in hand. He got a fine writer in hand. But the movie didn't feel as exciting as it could be & supposed to be. Boring. Ridley Scott definitely wasted an incredible amount of potential.

  19. Carl Penguin's rating of the film The Counselor

    i fuckin' love this movie.

  20. J. O.'s rating of the film The Counselor

    Moments ranging from brilliant to atrocious, this was a bit of a misfire for me. As badly as I wanted to love it, it just couldn't set its hook in me. The dialogue was clever and sharp as a bolito, on paper. On camera, it seemed a little dry and mishandled. Diaz gives the worst performance, while all other players are pretty charming most of the time. The thrills were thrilling, but perhaps a little too few.

  21. HKFanatic's rating of the film The Counselor

    Cormac McCarthy's particular brand of grim fatalism and outmoded misogyny makes for strange bedfellows with director Ridley Scott's glossy, music video-style aesthetic. And yet the slick visuals go a long way in making the disjointed narrative more palpable. The biggest issue may be that, for a film full of colorful supporting characters, the 'counselor' at the center of it all is the least compelling figure here.

  22. cacophagy's rating of the film The Counselor

    when it comes to grief, the normal rules of exchange do not apply, because grief transcends value. A man would give entire nations to lift grief off his heart. And yet, you cannot buy anything with grief, because grief is worthless.

  23. Justin Senkbile's rating of the film The Counselor

  24. James Slaymaker's rating of the film The Counselor

    Seriously tho, this is some of McCarthy's best writing
