Roman J. Israel, Esq.

What are you trying to say?  That’s how this movie left me feeling. Yes, Denzel put in a good performance, as expected.  Colin half phoned it in.  Cinematography etc. was good.  The story was reminiscent of Dostoyevsky’s Crime and Punishment and perhaps was trying to let us know that the days of yesteryear when people were civil and strongly rooted in fighting for just causes are gone.  What it didn’t accomplish, but I think it meant to, is to leave you feeling hopeful for the underdog.  It felt, well, frankly, bland – it could be that not seeing this on a big screen provided that type of experience but it doesn’t seem like the kind of film you need to see in a theater.  Date night – hmmm…sure ’cause you don’t have to pay a lot of attention to the movie!
