  • Not much justice for DW's track-1 talents, I'm afraid

    By JoeCoolRunnings
    If the intent behind this picture is to show present-day ignorance toward allegedly outdated issues--by the legal and judicial powers that be, by regular citizens--then ROMAN J. ISRAEL, ESQ. succeeds. Full tilt. But I got to tell you, guys and gals, this one tried too hard to press the idealistic-man-alone-in-a-nonidyllic-world" premise. We spend more time feeling sorry for the title character than cheering him on: Colleagues, thugs, and even punk, smart alec kids all working against him. It is appreciated that Israel tried not to sell out and to keep his principles--ones that most big-city (and small-town) lawyers overlook and/or forget. [Plus, he deserved the lavish lifestyle more than his colleagues. Even if it was by grand theft.] But everything he had to say falling on deaf (or dead) ears...stark contrast to THE GREAT DEBATERS! Most of all, Israel did NOT have to die for his values to sink into this big-firm peers' minds. Namely his only semi-ally (Colin Farrell). Again, I applaud the main idea of past (and still-living) issues and susbsequent ideals still mattering, and the conviction of the current generation's neglect and indifference. But overall, ROMAN J. ISRAEL, ESQ. does not do much justice for legal dramas, let alone for Denzel Washington's top-spot talents. In my humble opinion.
  • Good

    By lilduderob
    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

    By Kimberlg
    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.
  • Good Movie

    By Purple Butterfly59
    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.
