Movie Reviews

leonardmaltin.com - 11/10 by Leonard Maltin There are many good moments and striking scenes in 'The Judge' but, most of all, it's an actor's showcase.
Tri-City Herald - 10/10 by Gary Wolcott Court is in session. Terrific acting and a patiently told story equal a most positive verdict. On my list of the year's best.
New York Observer - 10/10 by Rex Reed Equal parts courtroom drama, legal thriller and family saga, it's also a synchronized duet for two terrific actors at the top of their craft that left me stunned.
MediaMikes - 10/10 by Michael A. Smith Flawlessly directed and skillfully acted, "The Judge" joins last week's "Gone Girl" on this year's short list of worthy Oscar contenders
The Virginian-Pilot - 10/10 by Mal Vincent The Judge visits small-town, rural America in such a way that movies hardly ever do anymore.
Fort Worth Star-Telegram/DFW.com - 9/10 by Cary Darling [Duvall and Downey] may not be enough to counterbalance the bloat of the rest of the film, but they keep it from sinking under the weight of soggy sentimentality.
FilmDrunk - 9/10 by Vincent Mancini Imagine 'My Cousin Vinny,' but much longer and without any of the good parts.
National Post - 9/10 by Chris Knight It's a regular crowd-pleaser, with a pair of A-list Roberts -- Downey Jr. and Duvall -- bringing their A game to the story of a smalltown judge accused of murder.
The Playlist - 9/10 by Kevin Jagernauth "The Judge" is certainly a cinematic misdemeanor, a movie that wants to wear the robes and bang the gavel, but barely earns the right to take the stand.
Tampa Bay Times - 9/10 by Steve Persall Of all the objections raised to The Judge, acting intensity certainly isn't one of them. The reason this overstuffed movie remains tolerable is casting Duvall and Robert as combative father and son, and their determination to out-thespian each other.
Baret News - 9/10 by Kam Williams A fanciful, thoroughly-modern variation on the parable of the Prodigal Son!
Oregonian - 9/10 by Jeff Baker Downey has made only one movie (not counting cameos) that wasn't Iron Man or Sherlock Holmes in the last five years, and it shows. He's so quick, but he's coasting on talent and technique.
