The Lincoln Lawyer

The Lincoln Lawyer


Based on the novel with the same name by Michael Connelly, Brad Furman brings us The Lincoln Lawyer. When I first heard about this movie, I thought it would be about Lincoln's lawyer, but the movie is called The Lincoln Lawyer because the lawyer that the movie is about conducts a lot of his bussiness in the back of his Lincoln.

The lawyer, named Mick Haller, is crusing around Beverly Hills making deals with criminal gangs, and he's probably the most 'street' lawyer ever in a movie. He's one of the best, and he knows it. He's not afraid of anything, and he'll go a long way for his clients, but he'll go even farther for himself. But, don't think that he's some kind of 'king of the criminals' because of that, he battles not only with his own emotions, but also with his ex-wife(who's ironically on the direct opposite in the courtroom).

The whole story revolves around a case where a man is supposedly wrongly accused of assault on a prostitute. The case seems pretty straightforward in the beginning, but as Haller has his investigator do his job, the whole case becomes a lot more complex. Not only does his current case become more complex, he has to go dig a long time back, and go investigate old clients. Ultimately, not only is Haller himself in danger, but everyone close to him, and he's forced between doing the right thing or doing his job.

I do strongly recommend people to check this one out. It twists and turns, but somehow ties up pretty nicely at the end. Twists and turns can be very annyoing, but there's no place in this movie where I felt lost, the twists and turns this movie has just makes it the more interesting! I think the acting is great. The only thing this movie is lacking, in my opinion, is emotion. You don't really relate well to any of the characters, but I guess it's hard when you haven't been in a situation like they are in.

I am trying out being an Amazon Associate, what this means is I can sometimes give my readers awesome Amazon deals on things relating to my blog(movies, tv shows). I'll try it out for some time, and if I get bad feedback, I'll remove it. So, feedback!
