Subscribe to WWMJ Ellsworth Maine on
Flick Chick here once again in the pursuit of truth, justice and keeping you from spending your hard earned money on movies that suck! Today Ma and I grabbed our briefcases and headed into Bangor Mall Cinema to meet with ‘The Counselor’
The Counselor runs just under 2 hours and is in the genre of crime, drama, thriller and is rated R for graphic violence, some grisly images, strong sexual content and language. This movie stars: Michael Fassbender, Penélope Cruz, Cameron Diaz, Javier Bardem, Brad Pitt and was directed by: Ridley Scott
Summary: An overreaching lawyer (Michael Fassbender) finds himself attempting to get out of debt and expand his life-style by funding a drug trafficking deal which winds up getting hijacked leaving he and his wife running for their lives from the predators of the drug trade.
Review: The overview of this movie for me was…when you venture into unknown waters not knowing what kind of predators live expect you may be eaten. This movie doesn’t give you a lot of background on the characters and their motivations and there fore it was a little hard for me to engage and care about the end result for any of them. Instead this movie fits together more like a puzzle as you try to figure out which of our players is the largest predator in the pool. On a positive side it stuck to it’s premise but did drag a bit for me. I would say overall it was O.K. for what it was trying to accomplish and on a scale of 1-10 I’d give it a 7
