    It's a credit to Washington's rock solid performance that we care as much as we do.

    Chicago Sun-Times

    November 22, 2017

    Roman J. Israel, Esq. has pockets of intrigue, and writer-director Gilroy and Washington have teamed up to create a promising dramatic character. We just never get full delivery on that promise.

    The story is surprisingly unfocused and, when it snaps out of the protracted setup phase, it plunges into quasi-thriller territory that relies on a series of hard-to-swallow contrivances.

    Washington Post

    November 22, 2017

    Part character study, part legal thriller and part morality tale about means manifesting their own ends, "Roman J. Israel, Esq." winds up being just as eccentric and unpredictable as its doggedly honorable, and far from perfect, leading man.

    You can't stop watching [Washington] - and you can't stop wishing he didn't have to work so hard to keep the story together once it starts branching out in different directions.

    What a treat it is to see this great actor, after almost 40 years in movies, give a performance that feels both utterly unexpected and completely true.

    This awkwardly titled character study overdoses on quirks and stale platitudes about social and legal injustice, leaving its intriguing title character in search of a better film.

    Sloppy characterizations mar intriguing story about a burnt-out lawyer.

    But, strung together, the moments here make for too much convenience and an overdependence on a quirky outcast's best intentions.

    Roman J. Israel, Esq. makes room for moments that are so thought-provokingly enjoyable that the movie, which can't be called a success, may be more interesting than movies that would have garnered more praise.

    Sublimely talented Denzel Washington deserves better than writer/director Dan Gilroy's tepid, convoluted thriller.

    Cincinnati CityBeat

    November 30, 2017

    It goes without saying that Washington, once again, proves to be the undisputed winner of this morality play.
