The Counselor, a collaboration between Cormac McCarthy and Ridley Scott, might be an old-fashioned morality tale. There’s a counselor, a man of law, who is tested. There’s a virtuous maiden. And there’s something that looks like evil.

The opening scene of The Counselor is Michael Fassbender performing oral sex on Penelope Cruz. It gives you a good idea of what to expect. The film is brash, surprising, more than a little provocative.

Cormac McCarthy is a glorious novelist, and many of his books have been turned into exceptional films — such as “The Road” or “No Country for Old Men.” But his first attempt, at age 80, at an original screenplay falls flat on its Gucci boot heels.

If only Ridley Scott’s The Counselor was as exciting and promising as its notable cast! It might have been a better movie then. Adapted from his own book, Cormac McCarthy’s tale of crime and betrayal ends up being about as clear as potato soup.
