The Judge will surprise you.

I didn't think it would be any good. Turned out I was wrong. It was good because of the acting. Robert Downey Jr. is always on point. Great to watch and chew up the scenery. Robert Duvall is an old man; ornery. Then there was the others in the cast, Vincent D'Onofrio, Billy Bob Thorton, and Vera Fermiga. They are all renowned actors. Not a bad one in the bunch.

So this movie is a display on acting, but there's a story there. The standard bad son comes home to resolve issues with his family, father, and hometown. You knew it would get there, and you know how it would end. But the acting makes it all worth while.

3 of 5 stars.
