Brilliant performances, a bit overly melodramatic.

“The law is the only thing capable of making people equal”

Hank Palmer (Robert Downey Jr.) is a shrewd and successful lawyer with a smooth tongue. A chatterbox that overwhelms you with its arguments and you can't get in a word edgeways. He uses arguments and counter-arguments in such a natural way, as if he's ordering something to eat at a sandwich bar. Therefore for some he's an insufferable person who does not mince his words. My favorite scene is the confrontation with some drunk local figures in a local bar where he and his two brothers Glen (Vincent D'Onofrio) and Dale (Jeremy Strong) chat about lost times. The way he gives those windbags tit for tat and knows how to silence them, is a perfect representation of who the person Hank Palmer is. This piece reminded me a bit of Matt ...

Judge this book by it's cover

"The Judge" sports a talented cast but unfortunately they're at the mercy of watered down bland TV movie of the week script.

When it comes to the Core of the film it never evolves enough to land the emotional punch it seems to seek throughout. Good performances help keep it afloat but in the end it treads water in it's mediocrity.

Average Time filler worth watching for some Pro's giving it their all but fails in the end with a cliched script and Direction th...

Court and law with the Robert's.

Two Roberts in one movie about court and law. Should be interesting.

The movie is about a hotshot lawyer returns to his how town after his father, the town judge, is accused of murder. While seeking the truth behind the crime, he also tries to reconnect with his estranged family.

Robert Downey Jr. and Robert Duvall both did a excellent performance in this movie. I like they back and forward with each other as they are both fantastic actors, and in this movie there's no different that their talent always shines up on the big screen with glory. The writing in the movie was also good and as I said before about the father and son back and forward dialogue was written really well, and I got to give Nick Schenk and Bill Dubuque credit for doing that.

Vera Farmiga character in the fil...
