Out of Marvel Studios, Robert Downey Jr a shot in the Deadline of Todd Philipps Very Bad Trip, Joker) and embodied by two of the leading figures of pop culture, the Doctor Dolittle in the remake of Stephen Gaghan and Sherlock Holmes in the two feature films, very successful Guy Ritchie.
The post race-Marvel seems to be difficult for Robert Downey Jr evidenced by the score, very disappointing of the Voyage of Doctor Dolittle (223 million dollars in revenue by 175 million budget, excluding marketing). The actor has stretched the arm to the back in the barn Marvel.
In this rich career of the American actor, however, is one of his performances that we will be able to retain permanently, because that turns out to be shocking and impressive : this is his performance in The Judge, David Dobkin (2014).

The film David Dobkin it is a masterpiece. Full, dynamic, rhythmic, with a scenario with onion, The Judge the surprise in the viewer, and transports them to a story emotionally dense and very well played. The casting imperial (Robert Downey Jr., Robert Duvall, Vera Farmiga, Vincent d’onofrio, Billy Bob Thornton) carries the film to the end of the arm.
A true auteur that sends punchlines as powerful as they are tasty, The Judge it is a film of truth of a court, a real movie of the test, with all the great human being that goes with it. And the performance of Robert Downey Jr it is amazing.
