Where else can you watch movies and read books, all in the name of research!
While I don't get to the movies very often these days, I've decided to launch 'Movie Muse' to compliment my Weekend Book Club, where I'll review movies I see.
Starting with THE LINCOLN LAWYER.
In a word? Wow!
Matthew McConaughey nails the role of lawyer Mickey Haller (from Michael Connelly's novel) perfectly.
I recently reviewed the book THE BRASS VERDICT, a follow up to The Lincoln Lawyer, and seeing the film makes me want to read the book all the more.
Ryan Phillipe gives a great portrayal of the villain: chilling. And the support cast are excellent.
I can't review the plot without major spoilers but suffice to say, there are twists and turns galore.
My only lament? Matthew doesn't get his shirt off enough :)
The muse rates this 8/10.
