Overview

A structural engineer Anthony Hopkins and an ambitious young district attorney Ryan Gosling become locked in a deadly battle of wits when the former is found innocent in the attempted murder of his wife in director Gregory Hoblit's tense tale of courtroom mind games. Ted Crawford Hopkins is an engineer who lives with his wife, Jennifer Embeth Davidtz, in the couple's lavish Southern California home. One day, after carefully planning out the details to ensure that there is no way he can be convicted of murder, Ted shoots his wife in a blatant attempt to kill the woman. When head hostage negotiator Rob Nunally Billy Burke arrives on the scene to speak with Ted, he is shocked to find that the victim of the shooting is in fact his longtime lover. Though Jennifer survives the trauma of being shot in the head at close range, she hovers comatose between life and death as star prosecutor Willy Beachum Gosling reluctantly accepts the case while preparing to leave the Los Angeles criminal court system behind for a more promising career at a posh private law firm. Though the DA David Strathairn vehemently resents Beachum's lofty plan for departure, the hotshot young lawyer remains convinced that he can expedite the apparently open-and-shut case and be on his way to greener pastures in one week's time at the very most. Beachum's swelling ego betrays him, however, as his future boss Nikki Gardner Rosamund Pike begins to turn up the heat and fracture mechanics specialist Ted chooses to represent himself at the trial knowing well that a career spent spotting structural flaws in aeronautical systems has instilled him with just the kind of argumentative skills needed to riddle the swaggering young lawyer's "foolproof" case with doubt.

    Gosling/Hopkins, deliver riveting performances

    If we needed any more confirmation that up and coming star Ryan Gosling is the next big thing, FRACTURE cements that reputation. Gosling plays a hotshot lawyer whos looking to make his move from his lA based law firm to a multinational firm that prosecutes conglomorates. Everything seems to be lined up for Gosling, but then Anthony Hopkins comes along and spoils his plans. Not since his Hannibal days has Hopkins been so delicously maleovelent, and when he murders his wife in cold blood, he expects to walk away untouched from a pefect crime. To say more about the plot would spoil the movie, but I garantee you will love watching the interaction between Gosling and Hopkins, and the acting in the supporting roles is first rate, espeacially David Strathairn as Goslings concerned boss. Fracture is a definitely a film that you will not want to miss.

    Captivating!

    This movie was fantastic! It was smart, sophisticated, and extremely entertaining. It was tense and thrilling, but still felt realistic enough that you "feel" for the characters. Not to mention, the ending was phenomenal! The acting was splendid and the plot-line was captivating. Honestly, the movie couldn't have been any better than it was.
