The Counselor

Review: The Counselor

10 Nov 13

polarising movie leaves me somewhere in the middle

Javier Bardem, Michael Fassbender, and some great lines are not enough to make this a good movie as there are just so many flaws. Cameron Diaz is hopelessly out of her depth (only Keira Knightley would have been a worse casting choice). Cormac McCarthy reaches new misogynist lows and gets carried away with too many monologues. The only award this film deserves is for most ridiculous sex scene... ever.
