An all-star cast totally wasted. The actors weren't bad, but they were given next to nothing to work with. To me everyone was on the same level. The movie is just so boring no one was able to shine. No one was really better than anyone else and no one was worse than anyone else. The script is nothing short of terrible. A lot of people have been complaining about the dialogue, I didn't have a problem with it.
This movie screamed potential during some scenes. But all in all The Counselor falls flat on its' face. Seriously basically nothing happens the entire movie. This guy is talking to this guy. Next scene. This guy talks to this girl. Next scene. That series of events happens over and over through out the entire run time. Oh yeah and throw in like 4 kills in between some of the talking scenes. That's it. Nothing makes any sense. We don't know a single thing about any character. And we don't care about the characters. A lifeless film to say the least.
