Generally a fine movie.

But I was bothered by the sudden change in filming style for the last 15 or 20 minutes of the movie. Shakey hand held cuts and amature quick zooms really changed the filming style. But why? It worked in Goodfellas as the change in style mimicked the change in mental state of the main characters. But not here.

McConaughey really went for broke on this one, shedding his rom-com persona and delivering a great performance.

McConaughey owns the screen as a street-wise defense lawyer working the system to achieve justice. Good movie, good cast. Everything wraps up maybe just a tad bit too easily at the end, and the bad guy doesn't suffer enough, but an enjoyable film up until then.

This was the type of movie that showed how seedy some lawyers can be.

Just read the book and now saw the movie. The movie was very good but always difficult to match the book for detail, All in all a good movie for a Saturday nights entertainment.

This turned out to be a very good movie. Some real good twists in the movie, good acting and decent story. Well worth the watch.
