Movie Review: The Lincoln Lawyer - R

Mickey Haller (Matthew McConaughey), is a Los Angeles defense attorney who operates out of the back of his Lincoln.  His newest client is Louis Roulet (Ryan Phillippe), accused of rape and attempted murder.   As Mickey looks into the case, he discovers some disturbing facts, and a connection to one of his older cases.  This turns out to be a more dangerous case than Mickey anticipated.

Despite his unorthodox working style, Mickey maintains a relationship with his ex-wife and daughter.

An entertaining story told in an attention-grabbing style with lots of intrigue.

There was not a lot of character development, but there didn't need to be, because the characters were entertaining as portrayed.

KUDO's to Matthew McConaughey; he played the role perfectly.  William H. Macy was also very good as Frank, Mickey's investigator.

I really enjoyed The Lincoln Lawyer and would recommend it.for adults only.

Content warnings include violence,  language and a brief bed scene (no nudity).
