Critic Reviews of "The Counselor"
Time OutNovember 12, 2013
A great writer's pompous idea of pulp fiction, treated with stultifying seriousness by everyone else involved.
New YorkerNovember 04, 2013
Each scene serves as little more than an index card for the mechanistic plot, which Scott films in a glossy and fluid style befitting an industrial promotion for the movie's high-tech weaponry.
Village VoiceOctober 28, 2013
The Counselor is the cumbersome end product of a high-minded writer trying to slum and a slick director aiming for cosmic depth.
ReelViewsOctober 28, 2013
It's not so much a bad film as it is a disappointing one. A very disappointing one.
Salon.comOctober 28, 2013
It's like a mumblecore movie about a bunch of Sarah Lawrence philosophy majors, made by coked-up rich people for 100 bajillion dollars.
Washington Free BeaconJuly 14, 2016
A masterful film, one that succeeds in conveying the nature of a cold, uncaring cosmos with remorseless tenacity.
The Film StageJune 22, 2016
For all its perceptible pleasures, one's left to ask how well-served any of its talents were in the first place.
Epoch TimesJune 18, 2016
With the exception of Bardem's hilarity, Fassbender's plumbing the depths of great grief, and Pitt and Rubén Blade's gangster poetics, the word for the film overall is 'Meh.'
Christianity TodayApril 13, 2016
[McCarthy] reminds us (with a particularly American sensibility) that this world is broken and tragic and not fair, and that pushing past that fact too fast is an error we can't afford to make, for the good of our souls.
CinemixtapeApril 09, 2016
At least Bardem continues to make the case that he doesn't have a bad performance in him, even in a film as lackluster as this.
eFilmCritic.comJuly 14, 2015
The movie is full of odd one-on-one conversations that may exasperate those who want the film to get to the point, but the dialogue is the point.
