The Judge - Review
The courtroom drama is genuinely gripping with Downey Jnr playing hardball against immaculate "silver-fox" Bob-Thornton and they play entertaining and sophisticated adversaries. To the film's credit, the final wrap-up of the film is not simple and is not saccharine sweet like you would find in other films of this genre. But it is disappointing that a film with such a fabulous cast and some great performances ultimately left me feeling dissatisfied. Watch it for Duvall and the courtroom but you can wait until DVD or Blu-ray. Better yet, go and buy Grosse Pointe Blank with John Cusack. Don’t rent, just buy it and trust me, you will end up enjoying a wildly entertaining and refreshing parody of the American-style “Coming-home-drama”.
The Judge is in cinemas on Thursday 9th October. If you see the film, please share your thoughts below.
