3 out of 10 Better than expected
Nicholas from Dublin, 04 Oct 2011
Matthew Mc Conaughey preformes well in a role he has done before. He carries the film well in places where the plot drags, but overall the plot and the pace is good Marisa Tomai was excelent as was Ryan Phillippe who surprises as an excelent villan Overall it is well worth a look if you enjoy courtroom dramas

2.5 out of 10 Well worth watching
Brenda from Wexford, 21 Feb 2012
A male friend raved about this movie, and I can see, from a guy's perspective what he might find enthralling and no... not the babes.... Good story line, but did I find it riviting - eh, no. But it's a good compromise if he refuses point blank to what a rom com.

3 out of 10 Feel it doesn't live up to the hype of the book
Peter from Dublin, 08 Aug 2011
With so many excellent court room dramas on the tv now these sort of films need something extra to stand out and unfortunately this doesn't deliver. it is certainly an interesting story but it simply never gets going and simply ends in a whimper.

3.5 out of 10 Not bad at all ...
Isabella from Dublin, 29 Jan 2012
I enjoyed the plot and the dilemma posed to a defending lawyer and particularly enjoyed Marisa Tomei's performance, a departure from her ditsy characters , a more serious role for her.

4 out of 10 Very good
Ailbhe from Galway, 07 Sep 2011
Best movie I've rented in a while! Def worth a watch! Not a big Matthew McConaughey fan - but he gives a great performance here

What's it about....
Having spent most of his career defending petty gutter–variety criminals, Haller unexpectedly lands the case of a lifetime: defending a rich Beverly Hills realtor (RYAN PHILLIPPE) who is accused of attempted rape and murder. However, what appears in the beginning to be a straightforward case with a big money pay–off swiftly develops into a deadly match between two masters of manipulation.
