Quick, take a gang of top-of-their-game actors, all playing slightly odd, violent, and fascinating characters. Have the film directed by a critically acclaimed director. Oh, and throw in a long opening credit sequence with ironically upbeat music, and a plot that’s twice as convoluted as its needs to be. And for the poster: have all the famous actors feature prominently with nothing else to indicate the plot. Which movie am I talking about? It seems to be a hit-or-miss trend, so will The Counselor, directed by Ridley Scott, convince or disappoint?
