THE JUDGE (2014)

the judge

A film by David Dobkin

Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Robert Duvall, Vera Farmiga

Hank Palmer (Robert Downey Jr) is an  successful lawyer. He’s completely unethical, a liar, egotistic, and can generally talk his way out of and into anything, He is really good at what he does. He gets a voice mail that his mother has passed away. He leaves The big city and goes back home in Indiana. Not only he has to deal with his older brother  Glen (Vincent D’Onofrio) and home movie obsessed younger brother Dale (Jeremy Strong), but his father Joseph (Robert Duvall) who has been a judge for the past 42 years and is the one man  more stubborn than Hank. Hank gets pissed at his dad and get on the first plane home the plane gets ready to take off when he gets a call from Glen and learn that his dad has been arrested for murder.

Here is a terrific little film By Dobkin and I don’t care what the critics says it is a terrific film. Robert Downey Jr. Has become the highest paid actor in hollywood and he has come back from hell (the days where he was doing drug).  He is probably one of those actor that are gifted and it does come easy for him he sees it and does it. Robert Duvall an other great actor who is still going at his age is doing a terrific job to keep up the tension between his son and him. Duvall and Downey has great chemistry that is incredibly  emotional. One man who has a stubborn ego, the other has a hard head who wants to preserves his legacy. A little predictable but fun to watch Dow doing a movie other than Iron man or Sherlock Holmes.  It is a little bit long but I didn’t really care. It is still good to me.
