Good  lilduderob  4 star

I actually really enjoyed it. I didn’t love the ending but, I thought the story was very good. Denzel is a terrific actor in everything he does. This is an example that you might not get the best movie but, you will get great acting. Thank you Denzel.

Compelling and Timely  Kimberlg  5 star

Charisma vs. courage. Purity vs. pragmatism. How committed are we to our convictions? Some of the dichtomies and questions beautifully posed in Roman J. Israel, Esq. Elevated by an indelible, gut-wrenching performance by Denzel Washington, and surpisingly nuanced turn from Colin Farrell. You should watch it.

Denzel Washington never ceases to amaze me! This was a good movie, however, I give it a 3 star rating for the profanity. I got lost in some scenes and I was trying to figure out whether he was an Autistic Savant because Denzel was brilliant in this movie, but weird.

Flawed Film but Denzel Shows Up Again  Felix Knowhere  3 star

I enjoyed this film and thought Denzel’s performance was fantastic; it was very nuanced and insular. He plays a man who through external circumstances has to wrestle with his moral code it in the face of discouragement and a very broken legal system. It doesn’t quite have the punch that Michael Clayton did but it’s well worth a watch if only to appreciate Denzel’s Oscar-worthy performance.

Brilliant!  Fcalfo  5 star

Brilliant writing, cinemetography, and acting! I was completely engrossed in the story from start to finish. One of Denzel's best. A very creative, delightful film to watch.

Very flat movie  Rambo8649  3 star

The acting is excellent, but the movie is poorly written..its very flat and meaningless. I think there was a tremendous amount of potenial here, very unfortunate.

Ideals and Internal Conflict  matsonmw  5 star

Those who judge this movie as lacking have no capacity for internal self-reflection or depth. The main character has lived a life full of principle and faces what his life is worth towards the end and doesn't understand or accept the outcome. Only through different choices and their consequences can he come to terms with the choices of his past, and through that, find meaning. It's a great movie for those with souls, but not for the shallow masses.

Not Denzel’s Best  DaveTheDude2000  3 star

The movie was a bit slow and a tad too long. But I’ve seen worse. Denzel was great as per usual.

Good Movie  Gandalf121471  4 star

Excellent movie...

Rain Man Denzel Style. Worth watching. Nothing overplayed and a great cast. Denzel in unfamiliar territory outside of his usual thriller roles and outside of ‘Philadelphia’ his role here shows his great depth in any acting role.

Wow  Moopoo008  5 star
