The Lincoln Lawyer: An Engrossing, Performance-Driven Story of Manipulation and Redemption

By: Da'Mon Guy

     The Lincoln Lawyer is a performance-driven, suspenseful story of atonement, redemption, and perseverance. The movie is a compelling whodunit that exhibits an unparalleled level of manipulation of the law by the individuals who abuse the criminal justice system for personal gain. The film utilizes the talents of an all star cast headlined by Matthew McConaughey (Ghosts of Girlfriend‘s Past), Ryan Phillipe (MacGrubber), and Marisa Tomei (Crazy, Stupid, Love). It also stars William H. Macy (Wild Hogs), Josh Lucas (Shadows and Lies), Michael Pena (Battle: LA), John Leguizamo (Vanishing on 7th Street), Michael Pare’ (Rampage), Bob Guyton (Fracture), and Francis Fisher (The Roommate).

     The Lincoln Lawyer is an entertaining, engaging, crime story that focuses on a high profile, smooth talking lawyer who operates from the backseat of his vintage Ford Lincoln but loses sight of the true meaning of being a defense lawyer in his pursuit of fame, recognition, and money. The film is a great suspense-filled mystery about the “Lincoln Lawyer” as he finally meets his match in another individual whose manipulation of the law forces him to question his moral compass. As he begins to confront his professional and personal demons, the daunting choices he has made begins to haunt him. The movie is based upon the best selling novel from Michael Connelly that was released in 2005.
