‘The Judge’

Director David Dobkin is lucky to have Robert Duvall and Robert Downey Jr. starring in his new trial drama, “The Judge.” Their Oscar-caliber performances – including Downey’s first outstanding performance since his Oscar-nominated effort in “Chaplin” more than two decades ago – give this familiar family-centric tale of small town justice new life.


Director/writer David Ayer’s World War II action-drama shows that war is brutal in the way it strips away the human spirit and leaves the participants reacting with a kind of prehistoric instinct for survival. Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf and Logan Lerman star.
