    Synopsis


    Fracture
    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. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      If you like mystery, subpense and the thrill of characters leading you in one direction when it leads you into another then this a movie for you to buy. Anthony Hopkins keeps you on your toes by turning himself into a cold harded killer. Ryan Goslin who plays oppostie of him as an attorney trying to put this easy case of where a man kills his own wife for cheating on him. Easy yes but is it really that is easy though? The movie keeps you on your toes in ways it did for me. If you thought you would be able to figure it out with the first few minutes of the movie then try but I do recomend this beware of what you will see. Nothing is what it seems......

      Not completly satisfying

      While the film was an interesting concept and very intriguing until the end, I felt there was a major flaw that left me unsatisfied. Unfortunately, I cannot say exactly what that flaw is without giving the end away. I wouldn't say that this hole in the plot ruins the excitement of the movie. I believe it will be more enjoyable to watch knowing you will need to suspend your disbelief just a little. The performances were good, but nothing standout. You won't see any Oscar nominations from this film. The photography, on the other hand, was compelling.

      This was a great movie of romance and the ultimate revenge! Anthony Hopkins just gets scarier with age. This movie is filled with drama and suspense as Ryan Gosling suspects that Anthony Hopkins killed his wife but can't figure out how he possibly could have disposed of the murder weapon. Hopkins, the ever smooth yet twisted scientist has an answer for everything, however. Will he be able to outsmart Gosling in the end? View the alternate endings on the disk for additional fun!

      Let me begin by saying its a great movie. You will definitely enjoy this movie not only because Anthony Hopkins is as stellar always but also because all characters in the movie blend in really well together which makes this movie a must have. The only drawback is if you analyze a few parts of the movie, it is a little unconvincing how certain actions can be prejudged to happen exactly as planned but comparing to the grand sheme of things it is minor at most.

      This was a great movie, my wife and I loved it! Anthony Hopkins is brilliant in this film! In fact, the whole movie is brilliant! This is a top of the line psychological thriller, keeps you guessing till the very end. I highly recommend it! Also, as fans of Anthony Hopkins, some of our personal favorites are The Edge, Instinct, Amistad, and of course, at the top of the list are the Hannibal Lecter films!

      I was a little afraid to see this film due to the poor advertising. The film came off as if it were a spin off of Hanabla Lecter's character in a murder mystery film also staring Anthony Hopkins. The good news is, its not. It was a well done movie and it had nothing to do with Hanabal. I enjoyed this film and would watch it again.

      The synopsis on Best Buy's Web site does the plot justice--read this (I won't repeat here). I quickly fell into the film as if I were there. There are a few interesting twists that I won't spoil here, but I probably should have foreseen the ending--but did not. Therefore I give it pretty high marks.

      Anthony Hopkins is quite good in the role of master manipulator and Ryan Gosling on the prosecution side fences with him artfully. The lure of a heavyweight law firm flavors the plot and Rosamond Pike adds beauty and a romantic attachment.
