Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 10/25/2013
"Mr. Scott has seized your attention with a primitive, predatory vision, one red in tooth and claw."
Chicago Sun-Times - 10/31/2013
"Michael Fassbender is brilliant in a literate and richly textured tale of the Shakespearean consequences of one man's irrevocable act of avarice."
A.V. Club - 10/24/2013
"Scott is a fine fit for this tale of cutthroat backdoor business. The film looks spectacular..." -- Grade: B
Total Film - 10/25/2013
4 stars out of 5 -- "Ridley Scott's hard-edged visuals are beautiful in their bleakness, all burnished sky and hi-def desert."

Product Description:

Ridley Scott's THE COUNSELOR, from a script by Cormac McCarthy, stars Michael Fassbender as the title character, a slick lawyer who is madly in love with Laura (Penelope Cruz). He asks her to marry him, and she agrees, though she is unaware that serious financial troubles have prompted him to fund a drug deal with a shady but established middle man named Westray (Brad Pitt), that could bring in millions. Part of the counselor's financial troubles stem from the fact that he's investing in a club being opened by his best friend Reiner (Javier Bardem), a hedonist and occasional client who has attained his wealth by any means necessary, and likes to keep his wife, Malkina (Cameron Diaz) covered in all the accoutrements the wealthy enjoy. However, when the drug deal starts to go wrong, the counselor finds himself unprepared to deal with the fallout, and soon he's trying to protect his bride-to-be as well as himself from the wrath of a drug cartel that has no qualms about exacting revenge.
