Default 'Fracture' - High-Def Digest Review

David Krauss has reviewed 'Fracture,' a film he dubs an elegant "howdunit" to tease your brains. This Blu-ray has great video and audio, but it's a little thin on extras. Certainly worth a look!

I never saw this movie. I love watching older catalog titles on Blu for the first time.

I blind bought this on sd dvd when it was first released. It was alright...kind of predictable though. It is worth a watch.

Hopkins was great, but the story kinda sucked, and was a bit unbelievable. what bugs me the most about this film is something that would go into spoilers territory, as it concerns the plot twist, but when it happened, considering police procedures, i wanted to yell at the screen.

I know what you're talking about and that pissed me off too.

The only reason to watch this movie is for the performances of Gossling and Hopkins.

This movie had all the right factors to make it great, but in the end just sucked.

Spoiler
Yeah, the entire neat premise of the court situation is wasted by the ineptitude of the writing for the policemen. seriously, they don't check THE FUCKING SERIAL NUMBER? THEY DON'T REALIZE IT'S ANOTHER MAN'S GUN? the cop himself doesn't realize it, either? the entire movie only works if the setup works, and because of this twist at the end, the entire movie just made me angry as all get out.


i take my movies seriously. can ya tell?

That's an excellent point, Nate! Of course, we are dealing with the LAPD here, so in some ways it makes perfect sense! (LOL!) In that sense, it's utterly believable!
