A good idea but badly done

The idea behind "Reasonable Doubt" is a pretty nifty one, (a young, hotshot prosecutor is involved in a hit-and-run and then finds himself prosecuting another man accused of the crime, and that's just the beginning of his problems), and to be fair what follows does make for a moderately exciting, if a nevertheless, preposterous thriller. (It also helps that Samuel L Jackson is involved). But while the initial idea may be good, the script is atrocious and Dominic Cooper's performance as the prosecutor is way off the mark; he just seems to be going through the motions and his character is impossible to take seriously. Nor does director Peter Howitt, (credited as Peter P Croudins) show any flair or apparent interest in the material. It's watchable in that of made-for-TV-movie kind of way but it could have been so much more.

Reasonably good film

There seems to be a trend in 'straight to DVD' movies these days... it involves getting an A-list star's face on all its promotional material and basically marketing it as if they're in it all the way through. In the case of 'Reasonable Doubt' you may have noticed Samuel L Jackson's foreboding face glaring at you from the posters. Yes, he is in it. No, he's not in it as much as most people would probably like.

It's about a District Attorney (who's definitely NOT Samuel L Jackson) who, while driving home drunk, runs over a man and then leaves him for dead. Later he discovers that Samuel L Jackson has been charged with the crime and so our tipsy lawyer must search his soul as to whether or not to let Sam take the fall. There are a few more plot points which I won't go into, as they will give away the 'twists and turns' that are involved.

Regarding the 'twists and turns' – you may see some of them coming and you may not believe the others. There are a few moments in the film where you really do have to 'suspend your disbelief' to actually carry on watching. Just enjoy Sam's performance and don't think too much about the gaps in logic.

Basically, 'Reasonable Doubt' is an okay film. If you like thrillers you can certainly do worse. It's one of those films that, if you stumble across it on TV late at night, it's worth watching. However, you probably might feel a little cheated if you paid full price to buy it on Blu-ray, especially as Samuel L Jackson isn't in it as much as most people would probably like.

Best to watch/rent first before you buy.

less than thriller

Mitch Brockden (Dominic Cooper) hopes to get a promotion at the DA office in Chicago. He's on his way home after a night celebrating with his buddies when he hits a pedestrian. Fearing a DUI, he leaves the scene of the crime. Next morning, Clinton Davis (Samuel L. Jackson) is found with the body and arrested. Det. Blake Kanon (Gloria Reuben) is the investigator. Mitch volunteers to take the case.

This is set up for a Hitchcockian thriller even if it's somewhat derivative. The not guilty verdict midway through the movie hits with a thud. The tension is drained. Some of the dialog is tiresome and frustrating. The business card seems to be an ace in the hole that Clinton would play a lot sooner during the trial. There are lots of little inconsistencies which add up to a less than stellar thriller. The big setup is full of conveniences. This should be Hitchcockian but there are always nagging annoyances.
