Excellent crime-legal thriller-drama crossover with cool giallesque twist. One of the best New Wave genre movies I've seen recently. Matthew McConaughey is absolutely perfect as a no shit taking lawyer who discovers something he shouldn't have. I also enjoyed the soundtrack a lot!
This is what an average film should be, it is above average except the first twenty minutes or so when I was thinking about changing the channel and the last three before the credits but other than that it's a good four star film even though I am not going to become a fan of it.
"Boss, if you want me to get rid of this, I can.” No need. Haller is in charge; he is the epitome of the male & law. He radiates confidence in everything he does. He's slow to anger but brutally efficient when fighting back. Pretty much entertaining, great actors, good script, fine soundtrack. 3,5 stars.
Ordinario legal-thriller di normale fattura,che parte da un ottimo soggetto di Connelly ma che la mano del regista non sà valorizzare,complice anche uno script lacunoso e molto confusionario.Zio Matthew è bravo nel tagliare l avvocato squalo preda di demoni,meno il resto del cast,dosato abb. male(Cranston sprecatissimo).Mano troppo svolazzante,fotografia troppo pulita,sviluppo narrativo farraginoso...dimenticabile.
