First of all, the movie starts off with a murder and you know who the murderer is. So it isn't a suspense story as much as a psychological thriller, the type that pits two very strong personalities against one another (played by Anthony Hopkins and Ryan Gosling).
Each is a control freak and each is ambitious. The whole thrill of this movie is watching the characters, seeing how they develop and change and wondering how this will all play out.
Looking at the reviews that others have written for this movie, it is clear that people tended to love or hate this movie -and I think I understand why. For one thing, you KNOW what happened -and why -almost from the start. But I happen to like character-driven movies and this one is definitely in that vein. Yes, Hopkins does seem to recreate his Hannibel Lechter personalty (or hints of it) but that worked out fine in this instance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fracture - a review August 14, 2007
Format:DVD
Fracture is a great psychological drama that stars Anthony Hopkins and Ryan Gosling. Fracture is a film with qualities reminiscent of Alfred Hitchcock era that really left me guessing until the very end. Gosling's performance as a young smitten lawyer named Willie Beachum is something to applaud. I was not impressed when he was cast in a crime thriller called "Murder by Numbers" with Sandra Bullock a few years ago, but those thoughts are now erased from my memory. Beachum takes on the case of a successful engineer named Ted Crawford, who is accused of attempted murder. As the clues become less and less presentable, Beachum suddenly realizes that Crawford is playing some sort of game, and it is a game of chance and elaborate mind games that Beachum just might win.

Fracture did not douse me with puzzles, in fact it really held back in that area and yet the continual drama that played out between the two main characters was more than enough to keep me not just guessing, but simply interested in the film's story as a whole.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classy, Entertaining Battle-Of-Wits Story September 5, 2007
Format:DVD
If you like courtroom dramas, appreciate excellent acting and an expertly-filmed movie this is for you. Only once, I think, have I ever proclaimed something "best movie of the year" and all that, because it's all too subjective and also a cliché but that's how I feel about this movie unless something better comes along the last few months of 2007.

This is just a fabulous movie with Anthony Hopkins and Ryan Gosling playing characters who engage in a battle of wits. Hopkins plays a husband who discovers his wife having an affair, shoots her, confesses the same night and then has things cleverly arranged where it's almost impossible to convict him. Gosling plays a young, hotshot prosecuting attorney on his way to bigger and better things with a change of scenery to corporate law but gets stuck with this open-and-shut case right before he switches firms. The trouble is, it's a lot more than he figured and he isn't used to losing. Hopkins knows this, of course, and plays on his vanity.

Gosling evolves from a me-only lawyer to someone who really wants justice, even if it costs him. Both characters are cocky and smart and the twists and turns just add to the fun.

I enjoyed watching all the actors performances and was very impressed. The camera-work by Director Of Photography Kramer Morgenthau should also be recognized, along with director Gregory Hoblit, who seems to direct very entertaining films ("Frequency," "Fallen," etc.)

I could have watched this story unfold for another two hours and would have been happy to do so, am I'm not one to sit still for long periods these days. That's how good this was....just Grade A film-making and storytelling.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nifty Mystery Benefits from Standout Leads... March 15, 2008
Format:DVD
"Fracture" trods upon very familiar ground for mystery lovers; a genius (Anthony Hopkins) plans and executes the 'Perfect Crime', and it's up to a young 'blue collar but upwardly mobile' D.A. (Ryan Gosling), to find the flaw, and bring him to justice. Despite a somewhat flat finale (the flaw should be obvious, if you are observant), the performances are so good that the film is a genuinely entertaining noir.

Hopkins' on-screen persona is so well established, at this point in his career, that his back-story as a brilliant, charming psychopath requires little screen time. A scene showing his authority at work, another of him spying on his much younger wife (Embeth Davidtz) enjoying an indiscretion at a motel, and his confrontation with the cheating spouse, ending with a bullet in her head, just seems 'natural'. Of course, this is just the framework to a scheme that will also destroy her lover, and humiliate the police and judicial system, while he smiles and taunts Gosling. Nobody 'taunts' better than Hopkins, and his genteel superiority and cockiness is great fun to watch!

Gosling's role is far more complex, and isn't helped by an abrupt reversal of his morality that is poorly written, but he does a remarkable job. A country boy, complete with a southern twang, he disguises a self-centered ruthlessness with an off-handed charm. With a 97% conviction rate (achieved by passing 'no-win' cases off to others), he coldly breaks an agreement with a defense counsel to win a big case, resulting in a job offer from the prestigious firm he'd just defeated. He is on the fast track, a fact he plays to the hilt, as he serves his notice to the D.A.'s office, is introduced into the world of 'big fees', and seduces his mentor (Rosamund Pike, sporting a perfect American accent).

It's ok. Anthony Hopkins is a good actor. I don't know about the other actors. The deleted scenes show the fumbling when this movie was made.
