The Lincoln Lawyer Review at Skewed and Reviewed

Skewed and Reviewed:
While the entire cast was incredible, Matthew McConaughey and Ryan Phillippe gave equally amazing performances (this is especially true for any scene that they were both in). The characters were well-developed, believable and for the most part likable, heck I even liked the biker Eddie (Trace Adkins). The storyline was intriguing with a twist or two that I did not see coming and it also had some very nice humor sprinkled in. I did find that in a few scenes the dialogue seemed to be a bit unnatural for what was going on but it didn’t really detract from the overall scenes in question. Personally I hope this film does well enough that they make a sequel (I believe the book’s sequel is The Reversal) because I would like to see more of these characters in action.

The story is too old to be commented.

Nice score and review. I'm looking forward to this one, if for no other reason than to see the return of McConaughey as a legit actor.

Thank you. He needed it badly as he was becoming a parody by playing himself in one bad film after another.

I'm still not interested. It's a great review, but I'm just about done with courtroom thrillers. I guess a big part of the reason is that my job has changed and I'm now a bailiff for the courts (finally off the streets and midnight shifts!) so I see courtroom stuff all the time!
