Denzel Washington plays Roman Israel who is a lawyer. Roman believes in standing up for what is right and has spent his life developing briefs that he hopes will one day change how the justice system works. He works tirelessly in a small two-man law firm and is happy to be second fiddle and not seen.
The only good part of this movie was the two main actors. Denzel can play any part in any movie and he will be great. Colin Farrell was pretty good as well. However, the script and the directing were poor. There were a lot of loose ends that had me scratching my head.
