Editorial Reviews

Academy Award-® winner Anthony Hopkins and Academy Award-® nominee Ryan Gosling are brilliant in this exceptionally suspenseful nail-biter (Rex Reed) that's so smart it doesn't let go, even after the final twist (Gene Shalit, Today ). Ted Crawford (Hopkins) brutally murders his wife and calmly waits for the police to arrest him. With the weapon and a signed confession in hand, Deputy D.A., Willy Beachum (Gosling), believes a conviction is a slam dunk; that is until the case completely unravels. Now, with little evidence, Beachum goes head to head with the cunning Mr. Crawford in a desperate search for the truth and the answer to one burning question: How is this guy getting away with murder?

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 Anthony Hopkins: The Evil Genius August 26, 2007
Format:DVD
Let there be no doubt, Anthony Hopkins plays a very good "bad guy". Obviously, his best role was in "Silence of the Lambs" where he was evil personified. However, in "Fracture", he is also excellent as the alleged killer of his philandering wife.

In brief, "Fracture" is a court room drama. Hopkins plays the part of Ted Crawford who has chosen to murder his wife in cold blood. The crime is to be prosecuted by Ryan Gosling playing the role of Willy Beachum. To Beachum, the case is a "slam dunk". Apparently, there is a signed confession, a murder weapon and a motive. However, as we soon learn, the case is far more complicated than it appears to be a first glance. Ted Crawford is a clever man who has left no tracks. Indeed, he is acquitted. But hubris then takes hold. If only he had chosen not to continue to press the envelope.

On small criticism I have of the movie is that the gun was never traced by its serial number. When you see the movie, this point will make sense. It's a clear weakness in the plot. If not, the police department involved was monumentally incompetent.

In spite of my criticism, the movie is worth seeing. Not great, but certainly good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Three words: Sir Anthony Hopkins August 17, 2007
Format:DVD
How can one man be so darn masterful at acting? Sir Anthony Hopkins adds suspense and pinche to this murder mystery. Ryan Gosling plays a capable "good guy" to Hopkins "bad guy" but shows his youth and inexperience. The movie has several twists and turns that keep the viewer watching until the very end. Overall, it was a good movie. Much better than some of the crud coming out of Hollywood lately. Worth the price of admission or the cost of the DVD.
