He gathered together the most famous Hollywood actors such as Michael Fassbender, Cameron Diaz, Brad Pitt, Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem. This movie is a perfect example of excellent actors’ play. The movie includes strong and maybe even provoking scenes, it shows the battle between the characters and the inner fight of each – what to do, which way to choose, should I get bad or stay true to my beliefs? Many critics say this movie is scandalous, filled with many sex scenes, blood and money.

The Counsellor movie shows off the dark side of the drug trafficking world. The truth is – the more you have, the more you want. But when you are chasing the bigger goods you can lose what you already own and those you care about. How far you can go? Does it worth it? Does the greed have its limit? The main character, a very famous and rich lawyer called The Counsellor (Michael Fassbender), has to answer these questions. He is very successful in life and he made a great career, has lots of money and beloved woman by his side and plans to marry her. Anybody would like to live such a perfect life. But the longing for money pushes Counsellor to make a deal with very dangerous people who control the drug trafficking from Mexico to USA. When you step on this risky road, there is no way back. But it was too late to realize it. 20 million worth of drugs are gone and Counsellor has to clear up a mess while his own life is in a great danger.

Action scenes constitute a small part of the movie. The line is based on conversations in which you can find a lot of hidden details, points of views and context. Every character’s move, gesture and look show who they truly are and what they really desire. The Counsellor movie will keep you on the edge of your seat right up to the end. And the end will surely surprise you. Perhaps, such an ending was created on purpose. It is Ridley Scott’s movie and he really likes to amaze his audience.

The Counsellor movie is dedicated to the loving memory of Tony Scott, Ridley Scott’s younger brother. Ridley Scott has his good and bad times but now he is back and ready to show what he is capable of. Regardless of you like it or not, The Counsellor movie won’t leave you indifferent. If you talk or write about it, then Ridley Scott did a good job!
