Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Cameron Diaz, Javier Bardem and Penélope Cruz sizzle in the UNRATED Extended Cut of this action-thriller from director Ridley Scott and writer Cormac McCarthy. A savvy lawyer (Fassbender) known for doing the right thing for the wrong people dives into a treacherous drug deal to make quick cash...but he soon learns that having it all could mean losing everything.

Critics Consensus: The Counselor raises expectations with its talented cast and creative crew -- then subverts them with a wordy and clumsy suspense thriller that's mercilessly short on suspense or thrills.

Gripping, violent drama about dangers of the drug trade.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this dark, fairly compelling drama featuring a star-studded cast -- Brad Pitt, Michael Fassbender, Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem, Cameron Diaz -- is best for the oldest of teens and adults, who won't likely be overwhelmed by the bleakness and graphic violence in it. Some sex scenes, though not showing genitalia, are fairly graphic in setup, depicting couples having oral sex and, in one scene, a fetishistic act. Characters swear often ("bitch" and "f--k").
