  • Oddly, the published screenplay – while far from McCarthy's top-drawer – reads better than it plays. What's onscreen recalls a line from No Country: "It's a mess, ain't it, Sheriff?" show more

  • It's possible there has never been anything like it. It contains memorable dialogue, vivid characters and several superb scenes, and yet it still manages to be wrong, a complete miscalculation. show more

  • The overwritten script and the ridiculous plot combine to make The Counselor a frustrating experience. show more

    I left wondering had I fallen asleep and missed what this movie was about. the trailer was by far better than movie.

    A clever film but excessively long. The story could have been told -- and better-told -- in -120 minutes. By the end I just wanted it to end so that I could get Out Of There.
