The Judge

The Judge Poster

Rated: R

Nudity: None

After Credits: None

When I got out of The Judge, every person who was screening it said that they loved it.  One lady said, BEST ROBERT DOWNEY JR MOVIE EVER.  The 44% on rotten tomatoes shows that the critics do not agree with the audience on this one.  So take my review as you like.

The Judge is about a horrible lawyer who loves his job, told his daughter that her grandfather is dead to him and peed on a guy on purpose.  This guy has a strained relationship with his father.  He must go back to see him and the rest of the family, which includes 2 brothers, one that is mentally challenged, when the mother dies.  So long story short, cliche, cliche, cliche, leads to murder trail because of cliche, cliche, cliche, and ends up cliche, cliche, cliche.  This was like the transformers of drama courtroom movies.  Drudging through all of these stubborn stupid emotions did not make me care about these horrible people, or that they should have a movie made about them.

Ugh writing about this had made me think about it even more.  The ending is so bad.  It did not even have an amazing courtroom scene.  Those amazing replayed scenes that we see in courtroom movies, this even lacked that punch.  I would say steer clear of The Judge, it just did not work for me.
