Roman J. Israel is a lawyer working for $500 a week at a small law firm in Los Angeles. In his two-partner office, Israel is responsible for preparing briefs, often focusing on the civil rights of their defendants, while William Jackson, the firm's owner and a well-respected professor, focuses on the courtroom appearances that Israel struggles with. Israel has spent years developing a brief that he believes will bring social reform to the unfair use of plea-bargaining to induce guilty pleas in the justice system. Though short on interpersonal skills, Israel is gifted with a phenomenal memory as well as strong personal convictions on the meaning of justice, which he has pursued at the expense of family..

I don't know if this is a good or bad movie, but if you have ever had the pleasure of having your computer shut down when it is not connected to the Internet, and then having to endure the following instructions, you should see this movie. The movie is also pretty entertaining. There are also some pretty interesting twists and turns in this movie that you will have to see to understand. And I think that one of the most interesting things about this movie is that you really do not know who is telling the truth. I think that this is probably a good movie for people who have had a hard time trying to connect with someone or a computer. But it does not really hold your attention. I am a movie watcher who gets bored easily, and I think that this movie did not keep me interested.

Yes, the pace of this film was a little slow at first. However, the movie seemed to get more interesting as it went on. The only problem I had with the movie was the lack of dialog, and the occasional narration by the cops and witness. I understand that it was needed for the story to move along, but it seemed too forced. The main character, Nick Lachey, is one of the more likable characters I've seen on screen. There were no one-dimensional characters in the movie and the other characters were likable too. The movie also went on for too long and seemed like it dragged on for too long. I was also disappointed that the movie didn't have a happy ending. The police would have been able to explain how the man got his money if they had a good lead, but they didn't have one. Overall, I recommend this movie for fans of crime thrillers. It's not the best movie ever, but it was definitely worth watching.

I think a good film should be at least at least partly predictable, as long as you are prepared to accept the possibility of a twist. In this film, however, the twist is almost unbelievable. While I am not a fan of Guy Pearce's acting abilities, I think he did his best in this film. He was a solid, yet a bit goofy, bad-ass cop. I was very interested in what would happen to him and what would become of the old-time Detective Winters. It's a shame the film never really took off. Even though I loved the movie, I was disappointed because I was expecting so much more.

Although I am a huge fan of Christian Bale, I have to admit that his performance here is not what I expected, but it is still good. The story of the movie is simple. A sad and serious, yet funny, and a happy ending. I give this movie a 7 out of 10. I have seen it a few times, and I always get a smile or two on my face.

I didn't know what to expect with a movie like this, which was produced by the same people who brought us the Unconditional (2001) and Suicide Kings (2008), but it turned out to be a good one. The characters are all well-developed, the action is excellent, and the story is very good. The characters are good, the plot is good, and it even has a little bit of something for everyone. The most memorable character is the character who plays the mafia boss, and he is very good. It was a real pleasure to see the actor in action again after his role in the excellent Unconditional. It was nice to see Michael Douglas, who really impressed me with his performance in The Unforgiven (1992). In this film, I found him to be very good in his role. I also like the movie's soundtrack, which was also very good, even if the songs were very forgettable. One thing that I did not like about this movie was that the music was very "hip" and the rhythm was very good. The fight scenes are very good and very creative, and this is where this movie really shines. I would have liked it if they had used the guns more frequently. The police officer's gun-play is very good, and it is nice to see that the guns are very accurate. I also liked that the police officer was not a hardened killer who had to take his job seriously, but a guy who is just trying to do his job and is not trying to be a hero or do the right thing. All in all, the movie is very good. It is really worth a watch. 7/10

I rented this movie just to see Richard Gere and I'm glad I did. I really like Richard Gere. He has a great presence on screen and I like the guy. He is one of the most interesting and versatile actors. This movie is definitely not his best, but his is definitely one of the better films of this year. This is a movie that you can really relate to. There is a lot of drama in this movie. It is a very realistic film. The actors really played their roles very well and the plot is well done. This is one of those movies that will appeal to a broad audience and not a specific audience. I think the characters did a very good job of displaying the personalities of their characters. I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys drama movies and Richard Gere.

I have to say I was disappointed by this movie, a lot of action, and a lot of twists. I'm just not sure how this movie could make it to a 2 rating.

If I could give it a negative number, it would be zero. This movie did not satisfy me at all. It did not feel like a movie that could be enjoyable, it felt like a movie that could be entertaining. I'm sure this is just an opinion, but I found this movie to be absolutely boring, it was slow and dull. I felt like watching a 1.5 hour documentary about pornography, or something. If I had to pick a favorite actor, I would say Charlie Sheen, but his character in this movie was not very deep, and not very interesting. One thing that I would like to see, was a movie about drug addiction. I'm not a drug addict, but I know people that are, so I'm sure they would be impressed with this movie. In conclusion, I give this movie a 6/10.

In the aftermath of the killing of the Russian agent, the KGB assign former KGB agent Ivanov to track down the one who did it. He is assisted by a Finnish colonel and former college roommate who knows a lot about Soviet subversives. I will not comment on the plot because I don't know how it is supposed to work. I will say that this film does work very well as a thriller. There are some clever twists and turns along the way and I enjoyed the film. The acting was pretty good as well. The ending is unexpected and does leave a little bit of a sour taste in my mouth, but it still works well for the film. I give this film a 7 out of 10.

This movie had a few things going for it, but it was also kind of lacking in that area. Sure, the actors did a good job in their roles, but it just seemed like there wasn't a lot of chemistry between them. But the movie was certainly an enjoyable watch, and I did enjoy it quite a bit. I guess it is also nice to see a guy, a guy in a bad-ass, ruffled shirt. The movie was certainly pretty good, and I definitely recommend it. * out of *

This film is the best film I've ever seen, and the best I've ever seen in my life. If it weren't for this film, I would have never even seen "Mystic River". The world is a much better place for this film. There is no comparison between this film and "Mystic River". It is the only film that can make you cry because it is so real. My son and I watched it together, and we both cried because of it. I couldn't tell you how much I love this film. Please see it.

Vigilante police officer Alec Baldwin (Aaron Eckhart) is assigned to investigate the death of a drug lord who committed suicide in the desert after being tortured and tortured. He starts a killing spree, he kills people who are in the company of other drug dealers and even the girls in his high school. He tries to keep the killing at a distance to avoid a riot with the police, and keeps on doing it while hiding from his own forces. Alec Baldwin is an excellent actor and has done a lot of movies since. It is great to see him in a thriller. He also has an interesting role and it is very good to see him on the big screen. Another actor who had a role in this movie is Russell Brand. Brand plays a cop who has no special skills. I found the movie good because it is very interesting. If you like action and thrillers, you will like this movie. I give it a 7/10. Good.

Romeo + Juliette is a brilliantly written movie that will make you think, and probably make you cry. I can't say the same about it. The movie started out so well and then the last hour or so.did the movie go out of its way to make me cry? Yeah, it did, because that's when the movie began to go downhill. The movie took itself so seriously, and like every movie I have ever seen, tried to put a smile on my face. Well, that was never a good idea. And, it was so unnecessary. This is supposed to be a film that is more of a drama, and I will admit that it did make me laugh once or twice. But, all that was so unnecessary. The movie was supposed to be funny, and it wasn't. I don't know if it was just the lack of laughter in the theater, or just the film itself, or something else. I don't want to put words in anyone's mouth, so I will say this.just don't expect a masterpiece that will make you cry. It will, however, make you think.

A very similar theme to "Pretty Woman", but this time around, the main focus is on a married woman, who's as naive as a child. Here, the twist is that she's married to a ruthless conman who's lost his job and his home, because of his poor judgement, and also his inability to pay his debt to the IRS. Even worse, he's been doing a great deal of gambling, and he has no savings, or means of support for his family. The film also shows the family in a poor light, which is kind of sad, because the family in the movie are depicted as middle-class. They're living in a modest home, with a small boat, and a small farm. Their only luxuries are a beautiful daughter, and a beautiful son. And, in this movie, they are shown to have the sort of life, you would expect to be a middle-class family in the US. As in the movie, it's a matter of life and death, and the best you can hope for is to win a few hundred dollars. It's a long movie, but it's not too long. I enjoyed it. It's definitely worth seeing, even if you're not a fan of romance movies. You can easily turn the movie off and go to bed early.

The film was good, but the ending was an odd mix of good and bad. On the good side, I thought that there were many good uses of sound in the movie. Also, there were some moments of good use of music. However, on the bad side, I found that there were some scenes that were not used at all. The ending, however, was an odd mix of good and bad. The bad part was that the ending was a little too much for one movie, and it was not clear where the film would go. I think the ending could have been more clear. I think that this would have made it better. This is a good movie for anyone that likes action movies. It does not have much depth, but is still enjoyable.

This is a movie that will either get you laughing and asking why are they doing that, or ask you to think about what the heck they are doing. To be honest, this movie will not make you laugh, or think. I thought this movie was good, but I would not call it great. This movie is really good for the fans of Mr. J. Israel, Esq. He will make you think about what he is doing in the movie, and what he is trying to accomplish, and what he thinks about the movie. One thing that I really liked about this movie is that it is not filled with pretty people or funny lines. There are actually people that are pretty, and they are bad people, but it doesn't ruin the movie. I thought the movie was good, but I would not call it a great movie. I would call it good, but not great. I would recommend this movie to anyone that likes to laugh, and people that are in on the joke.

I can see that Mr. Miller and Mr. Garcia had different ideas about the main character, and their work was not completely in sync. However, I really enjoyed the movie and found it to be a good thriller. The cinematography was great, the use of slow motion was well used and the ending was a good one. I did not expect that from the previews. I was wrong, and I had a good time watching it. I also did not expect that the movie would be about a cop and his daughter. However, I was still surprised that the movie did not contain a cop that is an alcoholic. I found that they should have shown more of the relationship between mother and daughter. I thought that the ending was also well done and the way they dealt with the detective was also good. Overall, the movie was very good and I would recommend it to anyone.

With so many movies released about the greed and evil of the oil industry I usually end up being bored. It seems that nothing is really new anymore. People do the same old thing over and over again. The thing I like about this movie is that it shows how a sane, rational person can become overwhelmed by all the evidence of human depravity. It's easy to look at the situation and say it's not worth the risk of another oil explosion. But as soon as the scriptwriter, director and actors made the decision to take on that risk, and as soon as the "action" was initiated, they lost all sense of realism and made the whole movie seem realistic. I just want to make a comment on the actors. In my opinion, nobody stood out. Most of the actors were OK, but the characters were not developed and the main character could have been a little bit more realistic, but then I don't know what was going on in his head. I think this movie is good and is well worth a watch, but if you are not interested in the movie, I don't recommend it.

Teller is one of my favorite actors. One of my favorite books to read, and as such I thought the movie was very good. It had great acting by the actors. The story itself is excellent, but the cinematography and editing is just awful. If I could change anything about the film I would. It is a good movie, but not great. The actors and the story did a good job. The problem with this movie is that the editing is horrible. It feels like they took the movie to a drive-in theater for a few hundred people and edited the movie to show it on a big screen, which only helps the movie to look more expensive and cheesy. The movie is meant to be a cult movie. It's a horror film with a Christian twist. And with that comes lots of fanaticism. Unfortunately, it doesn't make it that much fun to watch. If the movie had been made for a high budget and given a good editing, the movie would have been a classic. I give it a 7.5 out of 10.

This film was very entertaining. I didn't have much expectations before watching it, but it turned out to be a good one. It's not a masterpiece like "A Beautiful Mind" or "The Big Short", but it is a very entertaining movie. It's not as good as "The American President", but it's better than "The Fugitive".
