Robert Downey, Jr….. Oh, Robert Downey, Jr!
Any movie that has Robert Downey, Jr. in it, my mom or I will never ever miss… that includes The Judge.
The Judge’s story revolves around the father and son who are both in legal practice. The father (played by Robert Duvall) being a judge, and the son (played by Robert Downey, Jr.) being a defence attorney were the central characters in the movie.
The story had multiple layers on it. I found The Judge being serious and deep. I appreciate how the Judge showed father-son love, family union, pain, loss, romantic love, justice, divorce, father-daughter love, grandfather-granddaughter bond, brotherly love and career drive.
I actually reflected on my own life. Seeing how we see things at the moment and not really thinking or realising about the feelings that drove the way people react to things. I learned to appreciate the people around us and understand why people do what they do.
The Judge is a great movie! For Robert Downey, Jr., it’s a good break from all his Iron Man movies. No matter if he portrays Tony Stark in Avengers or Hank Palmer in The Judge, he’s still as adorable and charming as he is…
My Rating for The Judge: 4 out of 5 stars.
