The Counselor Thriller

Michael Fassbender and Javier Bardem in 'The Counselor'

Legendary filmmaker Ridley Scott and Pulitzer Prize winning author Cormac McCarthy ("No Country for Old Men") have joined forces in the motion picture thriller "The Counselor", starring Michael Fassbender, Penélope Cruz, Cameron Diaz, Javier Bardem, and Brad Pitt.  McCarthy, making his screenwriting debut and Scott interweave the author's characteristic wit and dark humor with a nightmarish scenario, in which a respected lawyer's one-time dalliance with an illegal business deal spirals out of control.

HitFix Reviews and Ratings

  • C+
    While Cormac McCarthy's work has been adapted well to film in the past, his first original script was the source for Ridley Scott's new film 'The Counselor,' and it's an angry, miserable, needlessly dark ride that doesn't seem sure what to do with strong performances by Michael Fassbender, Cameron Diaz, Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem, and Brad Pitt.
