Movie Info

One day Jack (Matthew Lillard) shows up at the antiques-laden warehouse apartment of Max (Vincent D'Onofrio) and Jamie (Valeria Golino), two ruthless low-level criminals with higher aspirations than the two-bit thieving they do now. Jack insists he's Max's brother, but Jamie, whose hobby is collecting poison, has her doubts. When Max arrives to find Jack tied to a chair, it's revealed that Jack isn't Max's brother -- he's a hoodlum with a line on a briefcase with a million dollars and a priceless, mysterious antiquity called the Spanish Judges; all he wants is Max and Jamie's help recovering the loot. But when the plan goes awry, and violently so, suddenly loyalties and motives are called into question. Was this Jack's plan all along, or did Jamie have something to do with it?more

D'Onofrio, normally a stellar actor, stumbles through the sub-par script, reduced to begging for cashews

Audience Reviews for Spanish Judges

Crime movie with a lot of twists and intense acting, the only problem is (and I freely admit this is more my problem then the movies) I kept expecting a bigger twist at the end that the movie never provided. Still not bad in the Usual Suspects genre of films.

There are better made movies that do not waste the talented D'Onofrio to begging for cashews.Boring twist and turn thriller.

I really enjoy this little crime thriller more than I should, but I dig Matthew Lillard in most things, plus you have Valeria Golina looking hot as the scheming girlfriend caught between her slightly unhinged boyfriend Vincent D'Onofrio and new arrival Lillard.

It may push the credibility in the final act, but it's a guilty pleasure for me.
