    Robert Downey Jr. is exceptional! One of his BEST performances ever, and alongside Robert Duvall made this movie utterly phenomenal!!! An absolute must SEE!

    I loved this movie. Question for all who have seen this great movie, do you think Robert Downy Jr. was driving that car that ended his brothers pro baseball dream? I think his brother was driving and RDJ took the fall.

    dou 3 estrelas com boa vontade. em função de atores em sincronia, e o Duval muito cativante (sobretudo nas cenas mais profundas). ainda assim, acho que faltou um clímax mais forte, fora o fato que o filme poderia emagrecer uns 15%. considerando o gênero "tribunal" sinto que foi bem interessante a narrativa. enfim, um filme bom para uma tarde de domingo, nada mais.

    Robert Duvall and Robert Downey Jr. are very powerful and effective actors. Their acting touches anyone to the core of their hearts.

    Actually one of my favourite movies. A lot of the cast are kind of just playing themselves but because of that it feels beliebable. It's still a story you can invest in. The soundtrack fits well. Character development is well done. Thoroughly enjoy it and can rewatch it often.

    The story is simple, but the acting and direction make it a stand out family drama that gives you the emotional ride you'd expect with the talent advertised on the poster. 4/5 - Great

    One of my all time favourite movies. The pacing and story telling are great and though just a few cliches try to drag this movie down the stunning acting and directing are able to make it near un-noticeable. Give this move a watch if you haven't it's phenomenal.

    Winning For Family. The Judge Dobkin's courtroom drama might be dull but the root of its family drama is worth going on stand for. And mind you, you'd be condemned guilty, but then you ought to have few of those guilty pleasure movies. The art-sy essence that it was created as, is the only form of art in here. The script is poorly weaved out. The big chuck of dramatic antics that it aspires to pitch in on the screen might be appreciative but its procedure to reach those big figures is purely dull. It is not polished properly or supervised with a good guidance for the material comes out often chalky that makes you uncomfortable on screen. Fortunately for the makers, the tale relies a lot upon the performance and boy what a show these huge caliber of cast has put up for you. Downey Jr.'s complex sucker-for-a-compliment hardcore attitude holds your finger from the first frame and makes sure that this overstretched more than two hours of your life was worth going in for. And still, he is not the best thing of the feature, winning with a larger margin lies Duvall's head spinning performance as his father whose rigid popular figure of his community is just impenetrable. Both of these performers going head to head with plenty of dramatic sequences, one of the best one that gives both of them enough range and room to flaunt in their talent is "the bathroom sequence." The scene itself is so beautifully written that it melts you down, factoring Downey Jr.'s daughter into an intimate moment between him and Duvall, the writers creates a few circle that draws in a precious smile in your face rather than few tears. The Judge is far from a perfect movie, even a good one, what it is, is a testament to the power that both these actors can ooze with panache.

    I randomly came upon this movie as I was binge watching several trailers. At first I wasn't really hooked on drama genres but after watching this, I deeply have mad respect for the film.

    A courtroom drama so polished and so eloquent that the penultimate confrontation scene of the austere titular father and his cocky estranged lawyer son turns up a poignant bombshell confession of a parent's toughest love and obscurest empathy for a child that will make the hardest juror weep.
