Christy Lemire Flat legal motor
Pete Hammond The Lincoln Lawyer is a don't-miss cinematic page-turner with enough twists to fill five movies.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert For what it is, The Lincoln Lawyer is workmanlike, engagingly acted and entertaining.
James Berardinelli The reason to see The Lincoln Lawyer is the reason to read the novel: because it's fast-paced and satisfying, and packs in a few twists and turns without straining credulity beyond the breaking point.
Peter Travers A dynamite Matthew McConaughey gives his best performance in years as Mick, wearing the character like a second skin.
C. Fuchs It's a decent enough offering buoyed by McConaughey's performance.
Tomatometer It doesn't offer any twists on the predictable courtroom thriller formula, but with a charming Matthew McConaughey leading its solid cast, The Lincoln Lawyer offers briskly enjoyable entertainment.
