What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Ann Hornaday Quirky revolutionary's brave new world.
Ilan Preskovsky Writer/ director Dan Gilroy previously gave us the quite terrific and decidedly uncompromising Nightcrawler, so it's disappointing to see so little of that film's gutsiness transfer over to a film that resolutely refuses to live up to its significant potential, let alone to its wonderfully realised lead character.
Jim Judy In the end, you’ll admire the veteran actor for his work here, but you’ll wish the rest of the film surrounding him was as good and interesting as he and his character are.
Tomatometer Intriguing yet heavy-handed, Roman J. Israel, Esq. makes the most of -- but never quite lives up to -- Denzel Washington’s magnetic performance in the title role.

Jeffrey M. Anderson Strong performances, but inconsistent and unsatisfying.
