Robert Downey Jr.’s new cinematic vehicle, gives the viewer just enough salt, just enough of the bile of family life, in an attempt to cover the overly manipulative and sentimental story. In spite of a remarkable cast, and a handful of exceptional moments, The Judge falls prey to the emotional wish fulfillment of most estranged father and son stories.


Those seeking out Robot & Frank are likely to get exactly what they expect, no more, no less, but for longtime fans of Frank Langella (or those desperate for anything even remotely sci-fi), it’s enough.
