The idea of Cormac McCarthy writing an original screenplay for Ridley Scott with silly-haired Javier Bardem and elaborate motorcycle beheadings inspired so many TAKE MY MONEY reactions that The Counselor was destined to be doomed by high expectations.

There isn’t much that you can say about The Counselor that will do it as much justice as simply listing the basic details: - The first complete original screenplay from Cormac McCarthy - Directed by Ridley Scott - Starring Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz and Cameron Diaz (looking like one seriously bad B-word) I guess if you’re a stickler for a little more elaborate plot details, then I could include that The Counselor is about a lawyer (Fassbender) who decides to get into the cocaine business, only to find himself in way over his head, while his client (Bardem) looks creepy (as usual) and another guy (Pitt) doubles down on the creepy factor as well.
