We Don't Object! 

The verdict is in: The Lincoln Lawyer doesn't suck

After a leisurely intro, The Lincoln Lawyer develops into a taut legal thriller starring Matthew McConaughey as Mick Haller, a quick-witted and fast-talking defense attorney with a chauffeur and a sexy Lincoln sedan.

Mick is willing to take risks to make money, and he’s good at his job. So when real-estate heir Louis Roulet (an intense Ryan Phillippe) is brought up on rape and attempted murder charges, Mick jumps at the case, which seems pretty cut-and-dry. But once Mick starts questioning Louis, he realizes things aren’t quite as clear as they seem, and Mick finds himself in a predicament.

The Lincoln Lawyer drags a bit in its second half, but director Brad Furman mostly keeps things moving with some genuinely tense moments. --Ben Gifford
