Willy Beachum: "I'm not going to play any games with you." Ted Crawford: "I'm afraid you have to old sport."

"Fracture" (2007) is directed by Gregory Hoblit who has also made "Frequency" (2000), "Fallen" (1998) both of which I like and "Primal Fear" (1996) - his feature debut that I love.

Crime /Thriller/Mystery /Court Drama are among my favorite genres and as long as the combination of these genres is clever, gripping, atmospheric, well acted, keeps me guessing and entertains me, I am happy. I know that many viewers were very insightful and figured out the twists and the ending within first half of hour or so but I did not and I was impressed by the way the disappearance of the crucial evidence had been handled - very clever. Besides being an entertaining crime movie, the most interesting element of "Fracture" is a struggle of wills and intellects between two main characters, self-made inventor - millionaire Ted Crawford (Anthony Hopkins) who shot his unfaithful wife in the face and put her in a coma and young, successful and smart assistant D.A. Willy Beachum (Ryan Gosling), who has a 97% conviction rate and is assigned to prosecute Crawford just when he is ready to accept a lucrative offer from the prestigious LA law firm. The game of cat and mouse that highly intelligent and malevolent Crawford plays with Beachum makes the film interesting and the scenes between Hopkins (in his "playful Dr. Lector" mode) and Gosling (whose character does change as he realizes what he is dealing with from the unsympathetic self-centered hot shot to the man who becomes obsessed by the case, vows to put the murderer behind the bars and makes it his priority) - riveting and joy to watch. I also would like to mention David Strathairn as Willy's boss, DA Joe Lobuto in yet another understated effective performance. Strathairn's Lobuto is so interesting that he could be a main character in another move. "Fracture" is not perfect. For example, Willy's affair with Nikki Gardner (Rosamund Pike), a beautiful lawyer and his perspective boss was lifeless - they did not have any chemistry together. I think that Nikki's purpose in the movie was to introduce Willy to her father, a judge, whose help he would desperately need in one of the later scenes. I'd rather prefer more scenes between Willy and Crawford but even the way it was, the movie kept my attention all the way through and despite the rather weak ending, I found "Fracture" quite good.

Competent Thriller

(Flash Review)

What would you do if you caught your significant other fooling around on the side? I bet it wouldn't be as intricate as what Hopkin's character does! Thus this film is cat and mouse to see if brilliant- minded Hopkins will he be able to get away with his revenge and if Gosling, the successful yet young trial lawyer, can uncover his true actions. The story held your attention despite dragging near the middle, was well acted, had some professional plot reveals yet overall wasn't memorable and moderately formulaic. That being said, it's a quality film for the genre with big name actors. Oh and there was an underdeveloped romantic angle that didn't pass the mustard.

Suspenseful, but has a disappointing ending

Iv'e heard of this movie before but have never watched it until today, i saw it while i was browsing through the free section of amazon prime video and thought i'd check it out. Fracture is a well-acted movie, it has a clever story line, however some scenarios are a bit far-fetched (example,the cop arresting the suspect just happens to be the guy who is sleeping with the suspect's wife) the first 17 minutes are very suspenseful, the rest of the movie is also suspenseful up until the near ending which is still suspenseful but also predictable, the directing and writing for the end scene is disappointing, we see everything unravel for an hour and fifty something minutes which all builds up to a basic "you decide", these type of endings where they let the viewers decide the outcome is annoying, they're back in court with a new trial and we the viewers have no idea if the suspect will get sent to prison or not, with movies like this it would be better with a simple outcome.
