Story


Legendary filmmaker Ridley Scott and Pulitzer Prize winning author Cormac McCarthy (No Country for Old Men) have joined forces in the motion picture thriller "The Counselor", starring Michael Fassbender, Penelope Cruz, Cameron Diaz, Javier Bardem, and Brad Pitt. McCarthy, making his screenwriting debut and Scott interweave the author's characteristic wit and dark humor with a nightmarish scenario, in which a respected lawyer's one-time dalliance with an illegal business deal spirals out of control.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..for all its endless prattle about morality, "The Counselor'' is a rare movie about drugs that doesn't show drug use or its consequences..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]
“..The Counselor doesn't temper enough of McCarthy's excesses, but Scott and his ensemble find enough meat in his scenario to make for diverting, bloody pleasure..”
by Bill Weber [Slant Magazine]
“..the dialogue is laughably pretentious, the plotting is virtually nonexistent, and the performances are so broad and cartoony that you keep wondering if it's all some sort of prank..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]
