Trivia

In "The Crossing" (2015), a Bosch novel by Michael Connelly that also features Haller, it's remarked that "He [Mick Haller] had received the ultimate imprimatur of L.A. acceptance - a movie about one of his cases starring no less than Matthew McConaughey." Furthermore, Haller was also asked by a reporter "if he had been in touch with Matthew McConaughey and if there would be a sequel to the Lincoln Lawyer film. Haller said he didn't know." See more »

Goofs

As Haller is leaving the court after Roulet's arraignment, he tells Dobbs they'll meet at Dobb's office at 4 pm. When Roulet approaches Haller and Levin in the lobby of the law office, Haller says "Good Morning" not "Good Afternoon." See more »

Well-worth watching
25 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Matthew McConaughey has arrived. He carries this movie. His presence makes this movie happen. He is the spark that lights this movie's fire. He takes a good story and makes it excellent. He projects the intensity and savvy that makes his character interesting and unique. And this is not hyperbole. Mr. McConaughey's performance is energetic, engaging and entertaining. He manages to project street-smarts and style; he is smart but not slick; he's realistic but not cynical; he is sensitive but not mushy. Another surprise is Ryan Phillippe's excellent performance which also adds considerably to the movie's entertainment value as his character spars with Mr. McConaughey's. Although the story itself is a variation of the detective-who-done-it genre, the effective manner in which the story unfolds coupled with the excellent acting makes this story well-worth watching.
