Roman J. Israel, Esq. ★★

Lip service to progressive politics can't save this misbegotten mess of a legal drama. A somewhat incoherent Denzel Washington performance is the main attraction, but not even that is enough to justify the film's swings between preachy indictments of corporate greed and would-be feel good exonerations of the legal profession. Late in the story thriller elements are introduced, but you'd never guess that this is from the writer/director of Nightcrawler.

33/100
