The reviews are rolling in for The Lincoln Lawyer, and they’re largely good — the film is currently scoring 84% on Rotten Tomatoes and a 64 on Metacritic.

The Globe and Mail’s Rick Groen calls the beginning of the film “every bit as slick and fast as its protagonist,” but criticizes the ending, “where the pace slows badly for the usual reason — the resolution gets ensnared in the very loose ends it’s obliged to tie up.”

The Lincoln Lawyer’s plot centres around L.A. criminal defense attorney Mickey Haller (Matthew McConaughey), who runs his practice from the back seat of a Lincoln sedan and finds himself representing a wealthy client with ties to a previous murder case Haller handled. It premieres tonight.
