For Hank, that means the ...

    'The Judge' Toronto Review: Robert Downey Jr. Looms Large, Film Doesn't

    There must be a multitude of Hollywood actors who seethe at the effortless charisma Robert Downey Jr. has at his disposal, giving him the ability to turn even deeply average material into compulsive viewing.
