Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: I don't expect The Judge to usher in a new era of legal thrillers, but I'm happy to see Downey leave the Marvel universe and Baker Street behind. – Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly, Oct 11, 2014

Rotten: An overstuffed, overlong slog of a legal drama. Director David Dobkin coats every cliche with cheap theatrics. Go ahead, see The Judge just for Downey and Duvall. But to cite another recent dud, this is where I leave you. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Oct 10, 2014

Fresh: There are a number of fine reasons to see the courtroom-meets-family melodrama The Judge. As you might suspect, two stand out: actors Robert Duvall and Robert Downey Jr. – Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post, Oct 17, 2014

Rotten: A blue-chip cast struggles with an unwieldy script in The Judge, a hybrid comedy, family-reconciliation story and legal drama. – Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail, Oct 10, 2014
