The only reason that I saw this movie was because I got a Groupon deal (2 tickets for $12 - haaay) and it has an 82% on Rotten Tomatoes. I am happy that I saw it though because McConaughey’s performance was impressive. I couldn’t believe that I was watching McConaughey and not getting annoyed (I know…thatwaswayharshTai). He was great at playing the sleazy-yet-somehow-likeable lawyer type. Ryan Phillippe was awesome too; he was the perfect rich bitch boy. I love murder/mystery movies and this one didn’t disappoint. I don’t want to give too much away, so that is all I have to say. Aaaaaand now I want to read the book that the movie was based on!
On a similar note, I walked into Battle: Los Angeles afterwards. 45 minutes had already passed, but I have a feeling that I didn’t miss much. I left after watching for half an hour because it was pretty boring. I did have a good laugh when Aaron Eckhart and some other soldiers were dissecting a dying alien. They were stabbing different parts of the alien to find out how to kill it, and Bridget Moynahan pipes up, “I can help……………..I’m a veterinarian…………………….”.
