Although the crowd in our theater was considerably older on average than my wife and me, the movie held up as a modern tale of how a person deals with having not lived up to his morals or potential. Good action. Not a lot of blood. Good story.

Superbly acted, written and directed film with Matthew McConaughey's best performance in years and much welcome after a string of lightheaded romantic comedies with miscast leading ladies with whom he showed no sparks.

Man! They don't make movies like this these days. Great acting, good story, suspense, no gratuitous sex, no explosions. Just a great movie. Lots of twists and turns in the plot, it will keep you guessing and on the edge of your seat. I LOVED this movie. If you have half a brain you will enjoy this movie. If you like sex, profanity, explosions, go see something else. This movie is for those who like to think.

My husband and I really enjoyed this movie. It was an interesting plot-line that kept me guessing until the end. Matthew McConaughey did a decent job, as did the others, though I thought that Ryan Phillippe was maybe the least impressive of the lot. In terms of writing, the only negative I have is a couple of weak characters. Example: Marissa Tomei, though a great actress, did not have a very imperative role. If there are sequels to the movie (as there are 2 other books revolving around Mickey Haller) maybe she will become a more key character later. Also, the movie looks faster paced in the previews. This movie is definitely for adults; in fact, there were a couple of young children in our theater and I remember thinking throughout that I would never allow young kids to watch this. There is some violence, though not overly done, as well as some language and sexuality; but mostly it's the fact that the plot itself revolves around rape and is obviously spoken of throughout.
