“ROMAN J. ISRAEL, ESQ. is a film that will be disdained by mainstream audiences, hailed by champions of law reform, and panned by the critic. Which category will you fit into?” – Michael Cox, Edge Boston

“In setting up a dilemma for its central character and then dropping it for something else, we end up lacking any investment in Israel’s fate…” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“ROMAN J. ISRAEL, ESQ. is nothing more than a missed opportunity.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“Think of ROMAN J. ISRAEL, ESQ. as a bridge joining NIGHTCRAWLER and TRAINING DAY, without much of the edge of either.” – Andy Crump, Paste Magazine

“Writer-director Dan Gilroy’s perplexingly inert sophomore effort ROMAN J. ISRAEL, ESQ. is a peculiar and unsatisfying movie experience.” – Sean Burns, Spliced Personality

“It’s just a shame that the storytelling can’t quite match Pixar’s superbly rendered visuals.” – Brett Michel, The Improper Bostonian

“The film builds to an emotional tribute…  that brings to mind the opening sequence of another Pixar triumph, UP.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies
