    Chicago Sun-Times Richard Roeper

    The Counselor achieves the almost unheard-of daily double of giving us the most outrageous sex scene of the year AND the most unforgettably brutal murder of the year. This is a bad...

    The film doesn't temper enough of Cormac McCarthy's excesses, but Ridley Scott and his ensemble find enough meat in his scenario to make for diverting, bloody pleasure.

    The Hollywood Reporter Todd McCarthy

    Despite its scaldingly hot cast and formidable writer/director combination, The Counselor is simply not a very likable or gratifying film. In fact, it's a bummer.

  • I expected a lighter film...

    7.0
    this movie was heavy-very heavy in fact. A well done and scary look at the dark world of cartels. I wouldn't recommend this film for the faint of heart as it has some of the most disturbing images I have ever seen in a crime drama. type of movie. Following in the tradition of Ridley Scott films being blockbusters (with the exception of RS's "Christopher Columbus 1492 Conquest of Paradise" where Haiti is populated with people who look like Aztecs) this one is a big production & it does show things in kind of a new and different way. Maybe a bit too hard but I suppose that is the nature of the subject matter.moreless
