That's a nice movie to watch. All the audience was mature when I went to watch it. So for the kids, could be kind boring but if you are over 20's and like twisted lawyers cases, you will like it. This is a movie you could see in some American series that are on television these days. But I like how the way they made it for the big screen. Didn't know what quite to expect but it never let me off the hook! The story was interesting throughout all the various developments. Matthew McConaughey was truly convincing and believable as was the entire cast. Enjoyed seeing a manipulative, weasel like defence lawyer with some redeemable qualities. There was some flaws in the screen play and the dialogues but it doesn't ruin the movie. The supporting cast ; Marisa Tomei , Josh Lucas & Ryan Phillipe were absolutely amazing it's one of the best ensemble cast ever... Overall 8/10 enjoyed it a lot...
