Most actors love to challenge themselves with complex and compelling roles and it appears that Denzel Washington is no exception. He plays an attorney with a multitude of idiosyncrasies and a fiercely determined ideology. With various ticks and an idiosyncratic appearance he staunchly defends his principles until a large corporate attorney (Colin Farrell) introduces him to the business side of the profession. Writer/director Dan Gilroy has presented some interesting situations and allowed Washington to go all out, but there’s something complex and confusing about his performance and the statements that the movie is making. Despite an uneven narrative, continuous character setbacks and sometimes abrupt motivations, Washington is worth watching.
