  • James White

    A solid thriller with McConaughey doing what he does best.

    Empire Full Review
  • Ella Taylor

    If The Lincoln Lawyer has nothing new of substance to offer in its tale of life on the judicial margins, it has relaxed L.A. atmosphere to burn.

  • Andrew O'Hehir

    It's rare enough to see a Hollywood movie made with this much attention and personality, let alone one that balances comedy and darkness as well as this one does. Full Review
  • Pete Hammond

    The most surprising courtroom drama since 1985's "Jagged Edge," The Lincoln Lawyer is a don't-miss cinematic page-turner with enough twists to fill five movies.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    This is rock-solid entertainment. McConaughey, a cunning mesmerizer in the courtroom, steers this Lincoln into what could be a hell-raising franchise. More, please. Soon.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    I like movies about smart guys who are wise asses, and think their way out of tangles with criminals. I like courtroom scenes. I like big old cars. I like The Lincoln Lawyer because it involves all three.

  • Rick Groen

    What began as quick and engaging, Hollywood craft at its most proficient, ends as dull and predictable, Hollywood product back in formulaic mode.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Amy Biancolli

    A smart, juicy entertainment, but it's the kind of straight-up legal drama that hinges entirely on crafty storytelling and across-the-board solid performances.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    An L.A.-based story with more turns and curves than a Hollywood canyon.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    A pleasantly seedy crime thriller.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    Shamelessly entertaining.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Furman keeps the drama taut when it needs to be, and loosens the reins easily when it's time to kick back - he has good control over the movie's rhythms.

    Movieline Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    A breath of fresh air in this musty spring movie season.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    In the best tradition of mystery thrillers of this sort, it satisfies enough on an emotional level that we're willing to forgive any intellectual, procedural, and logical shortcomings.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    Plot leaps that are fun on paper look generic on screen; here's another lawyer movie in which the characters are only as interesting as the actors playing them.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Populated with a peerless supporting cast, actors who bring just the right history to their roles.

    Orlando Sentinel Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    There are modest pleasures in a familiar story told differently enough that you're happy to keep guessing and watching.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Michael Wilmington

    This pungent neo-noir can be sleazy and over-familiar, but like the protagonist, it's so smart and crafty that you may forgive its flaws.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Kirk Honeycutt

    The film is only "superior" though, not great. The themes feel shopworn and devotee of crime fiction can point to the any number of antecedents for these characters.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    Has very little soul to speak of, but it's got swagger to burn.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    The next step in Matthew McConaughey's inevitable march to network television is The Lincoln Lawyer, a pilot disguised as a feature-length movie, with an entire season's arc crammed into two hours.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    Strikes an uneasy compromise between liberty and justice. It marches at an efficient pace, but there's too much collateral damage to believability.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    It goes down as smoothly as a milkshake thanks to an impressive cast.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    The story, based on the Michael Connelly novel, grows increasingly far-fetched - at times it plays like an expensive pilot for a TV series, maybe a "Young Barnaby Jones" or something.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Andrew Barker

    It's easy enough to just soak up star Matthew McConaughey's good-ol'-boy appeal and overlook the film's stilted dialogue, bizarre directorial indulgences, excessive running time and boilerplate "Law and Order"-style narrative.

    Variety Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    The intricate plotting that distinguished the book overwhelms the movie.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Nathan Rabin

    It's agreeably mediocre, a cinematic paperback novel transformed into the kind of fare folks mindlessly consume on planes and forget about before touching down.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    Formulaic enough to suggest that franchise would be B level at best, a TV series at worst. But it's also just good enough to make you want to watch it, anyway.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    In theory, there's nothing wrong when a movie reminds you of TV. (That's where the fun is, anyway.) But when a movie resembles a long-lost, corduroy-clad episode of "The Rockford Files," that's a problem.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Mark Holcomb

    Undercut by uninspired direction, car-commercial art direction, and a lack of grit that makes the hidebound nature of the genre stand out like an episode of "Matlock" on HBO.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    There's a reason potboiler paperbacks don't make good movies - there's too much outlandish plot, even for Hollywood.
