My Weekend Movie Rental Pick

‘The Lincoln Lawyer’ (2011)

No, I don’t remember Matthew McConaughey taking off his shirt–thankfully, sorry ladies. He does, however, defend clients from his Lincoln Town Car in a way that would make old “Columbo” TV fans proud–finding the truth hidden under one lie at a time.

Based off the bestselling novel by Michael Connelly, this 2011 thriller marked the first time I stood up and took notice of Matthew McConaughey’s acting talent.  And, by now, we all know just how good this Oscar-winner is on the big-screen.

This film will keep you glued until the credits roll while William H. Macy and Country singer Trace Adkins round-out a great cast that includes Academy Award winner Marisa Tomei (“My Cousin Vinny” in 1992) and Emmy Award winner Bryan Cranston from TV’s “Breaking Bad”.  I rest my case.

Grade: A-

Available to rent at Amazon, Apple TV’s iTunes, Google Play, and Netflix.  “The Lincoln Lawyer” is rated R with a running time of 1 hour and 58 minutes.
