High flying District Attorney Mitch Brockden (Cooper) finds his life turned upside down, when he is involved in a hit & run accident, but as he covers up his own involvement, things begin to take a frightening turn when he uncovers an even more gruesome discovery that leaves him in a catch-22 situation of moral ambiguity.

Canadian crime thriller Reasonable Doubt is very predictable, that we figured out the whole plot within the first 20 minutes or so of it's 80 minute run time. And parts of it's story are pretty contrived to say the least, while it misses a beat to add some exciting action towards the end, instead deciding to rely purely on low key suspense & psychological thrills that is palatable enough for the most part, albeit very hard to swallow in places (walking out of police station with a gun in hand ? seriously ?). On the plus side it manages to offer an interesting & enjoyable enough experience in it's execution, thanks to some good cinematography, credible acting performances & that it moves at a good pace that pushes you along to the next part of it's story, so that you don't get too bogged down in the details of how you got there.

The acting is passable enough to maintain immersion. Dominic Cooper (The Devil's Double) is beliveable as the upstanding successful prosecuting lawyer Mitch Brockden , stuck in a catch-22 situation as he's dragged down into a traumatic state of panic trying to keep his house of cards upright as long as possible & do some detective work to dig himself out of a hole.

Mitch Brockden (Dominic Cooper) is from South Chicago with a checkered past and criminal step-brother. He has been able to hide much of this as he is a family man climbing the ladder as a city prosecutor. He doesn't lose cases. After a night out with the boys he drives intoxicated and hits another man. He calls 911 then flees the scene. Clinton Davies (Samuel L. Jackson) is arrested for the murder after police find the bloody body in his vehicle. Clinton claimed he found him in the road. Mitch must prosecute Clinton for a crime that he himself committed.

Now that could make a good movie in itself, except it gets really twisty. There are decent clues dropped along the way for the twists, so they don't come too unexpected...except maybe that one thing. The courtroom drama is over after 30 minutes and the rest of the film becomes a crime drama with Samuel L. Jackson in a fitting role.

Parental Guide: Infrequent F-bomb (One I recall). No sex or nudity.

The only things I liked about the film are : that it is nicely shot giving a rich, warm feel to the movie (although it looked more like a tv production) and Samuel L Jackson's performance was suitably menacing but he is in a movie not worthy of his talent.
There was a good concept at the beginning but from the moment Mitch (Dominic Cooper) realized who the killer was, the film became cliched, rather silly, very dull and predictable. It lacked tension and even the action sequences was very boring to watch. The music made it more interesting than it actually was.
What is noticeable is that the director used a pseudonym ; he probably didn't want to be attached to this mess. This is a forgettable film not worth watching.

There seems to be a trend in ‘straight to DVD’ movies these days... it involves getting an A-list star’s face on all its promotional material and basically marketing it as if they’re in it all the way through. In the case of ‘Reasonable Doubt’ you may have noticed Samuel L Jackson’s foreboding face glaring at you from the posters. Yes, he is in it. No, he’s not in it as much as most people would probably like.

It’s about a District Attorney (who’s definitely NOT Samuel L Jackson) who, while driving home drunk, runs over a man and then leaves him for dead. Later he discovers that Samuel L Jackson has been charged with the crime and so our tipsy lawyer must search his soul as to whether or not to let Sam take the fall. There are a few more plot points which I won’t go into, as they will give away the ‘twists and turns’ that are involved.

Regarding the ‘twists and turns’ – you may see some of them coming and you may not believe the others. There are a few moments in the film where you really do have to ‘suspend your disbelief’ to actually carry on watching. Just enjoy Sam’s performance and don’t think too much about the gaps in logic.

Basically, ‘Reasonable Doubt’ is an okay film. If you like thrillers you can certainly do worse. It’s one of those films that, if you stumble across it on TV late at night, it’s worth watching. However, you probably might feel a little cheated if you paid full price to buy it on Blu-ray, especially as Samuel L Jackson isn’t in it as much as most people would probably like.

Best to watch/rent first before you buy.

I like Samuel L Jackson films but I'm afraid this is not one of the good ones. His performance seemed to be done on autopilot, whilst his co-star Dominic Cooper was not a strong enough actor for a major role.

The film was very predictable, right through to the end - definitely one to rent not buy!
