Boring. That is the one-word answer to summarize this movie. The protagonist was a weirdo and unrelatable and the pacing between scenes of interest dragged. Intentions of the main character were also questionable. Well, whatever, I enjoyed the popcorn bucket, so there's that, I guess. 6/10

Boy, the Academy must love Denzel Washington to sit through this movie long enough to decide that his performance was nomination worthy. Roman J. Israel, Esq. is an unfocused legal thriller, allegedly, orbiting around Washington’s movie star charisma. Often times, this is enough to get its lead actor nominated (sometimes they even win), but it sure does make my dogged yearly attempt to watch the... read more

I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since I have a weak spot for Denzel Washington, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, it turned out to be one of the most intriguing characters played by Washington and the guy delivered one of his best performances here. Unfortunately, it seems that Dan Gilroy eventually didn’t really know what to do with this complex character. It ha... read more

Roman J. Israel, Esq. is set in the underbelly of the overburdened Los Angeles criminal court system. Denzel Washington stars as a driven, idealistic defense attorney whose life is upended when his mentor, a civil rights icon, dies. When he is recruited to join a firm led by one of the legendary man’s former students – the ambitious lawyer George Pierce (Colin Farrell) – and begins a friendship with a young champion of equal rights (Carmen Ejogo), a turbulent series of events ensue that will put the activism that has defined Roman’s career to the test.
Release date: 22 November 2017

2020: Others (340 movies items)

"Gilroy nasce come sceneggiatore e i suoi film sono molto scritti andando ad analizzare a fondo i suoi personaggi principali. Come in 'Nightcrawler', uno studio di carattere di un uomo che si trova davanti a una svolta improvvisa: ma mentre lo scandalista di Gyllenhaal cavalca la situazione, qui l'anziano avvocato progressista (Che Washington interpreta con passione ingoffendosi assai) finisce per scontrarsi con la propria coscienza. Un film che si sforza di mantenere un profilo alto (con cui il "

Well, it turned out to be one of the most intriguing characters played by Washington and the guy delivered one of his best performances here. Unfortunately, it seems that Dan Gilroy eventually didn’t really know what to do with this complex character. It had to do with some insignificant details like the fact that the guy didn’t have a computer system to manage his law cases or even used emails to communicate but was still able to manage an iPod with 8000 songs. In fact, Roman J. Israel must be the first man on Earth able to order a Uber without even owning a smartphone. But it went further than this as the makers never knew if they should portray” read more
