Trivia

Ryan Phillippe was disappointed with the film's final product. In discussing his career during promotion for "The Lincoln Lawyer" he was quoted as saying "I did this terrible movie with 50 Cent. It was just a situation I didn't want to be in. I was sold a bill of goods and it turned out to be something different, which is often the case in this business." See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Sonny: When I was younger I wanted to be a priest. I was going into the battle to save men's souls from the evil of the world. But as I got older, I saw the world for what it really was. It wasn't so much who I was going to save, but what was going to save the world from me.

Poor, poor poor.
9 September 2011 | by See all my reviews

Well this type of genre, i.e action, crime, heist is right up my street. Add Bruce Willis to the frame and you would think that I was onto a winner. Unfortunately this was not the case. I found the film to be poorly directed, the acting wooden and the storyline predictable if slightly erratic. After reading the synopsis I kind of thought I would be in for a decent hour and a half. I found myself dropping off 55 minutes into the film which for an action film is pretty poor. Of course, I say action but the truth is there was very little action in it. Add to it a strange religious undertone which I suppose is to signify the lead role is looking for redemption and you get a complete mismatch/ conflict of interests. I give it a generous four out of ten but take into consideration this is about the lowest I have ever scored a film.
