The Counselor is Ridley Scott's latest film starring Michael Fassbender (Promethius), Javier Bardem (No Country for Old Men), Cameron Diaz (Bad Teacher), and Brad Pitt (World War Z). It's about a lawyer who finds himself in over his head when he decides to involve himself in the drug trade.
This is a twisted and intense melodrama that is not for the faint of heart. It is very violent and disturbing. The story is interesting and will keep you guessing for a majority of the time, but by the end is somewhat predictable and confusing.
The story was well written with good dialogue. It was shocking and funny but at the same time, offensive and upsetting. Michael Fassbender did a great job in this film. He's a very talented actor and this role is sure to get him a step closer to becoming a leading man on a more full time basis. Brad Pitt was his usual self and a big part of why I wanted to see this movie. Even though he's not the best actor in the world, I really like him and this was a good role for him.Cameron Diaz and Penelope Cruz aslo did a great job but Javier Bardem was outstanding. His character was very odd and he easily stole every scene he was in.
All in all, if you are not offended by anything and if you enjoy being disturbed, this is the movie for you. It's strange and disturbing, very violent, and oddly funny. If you like any of Quentin Tarantino's movies and don't mind less action and more melodrama, you're sure to enjoy this film.
My grade for this film: B
