Very Good. Movie like this are oh so rare these days. I might be a little biased because courtroom drama is right in the Mobile Movie Man’s wheel house but I really enjoyed this movie on so many different levels. Robert Duvall and Robert Downey Jr put on an acting clinic here.
The story is chock full in nostalgia, native son returns, father – son rivalry, sibling rivalry and bad decisions with serious family consequences across the decades. The movie has a solid script, and superior acting from the top of the cast down to the bottom but its RDJ and Duvall’s chemistry who make this move so very good. Their scenes together are so intense and they draw you in completely, and the aftermath of the verdict really tugs at you. For me what makes a movie very good is it leaves me thinking about it for a while after its over, and if you have had a rocky time in relationships with parents, siblings, or lovers you will find some type of connection to this movie. This is a must see because the story just feels real, was touching and did not lag once. This is a movie that if I happen to catch on TV when I’m channel surfing that I would definitely watch again. So do yourself a favor and check this one out and you’ll be glad you did. The Mobile Movie Man has spoken. Now run along kiddies.
