My Review:

Despite an all star cast that includes Michael Fassbender, Penelope Cruz, Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem and Cameron Diaz, The Counselor is just plain bad. Really, it has to be the worst movie I’ve seen all year, and maybe ever.

A convoluted story, gratuitous sex and violence, cliche villains, and not one hero in the mix – this movie is one big waste of time. I don’t want to waste any more of my time going over it in a review – just take my advice and skip this one.
