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.

There’s an excellent idea at the core of this little thriller, which is sadly submerged under two metric tonnes of implausible behaviour and unlikely outcomes. The whole plot hinges on the notion that an up and coming city prosecutor might make a series of increasingly ill-advised decisions, compounding an initial misdemeanour-sized mistake until he becomes an accomplice to first-degree murder.
Yet because this is the movies, there’s a happy ending and all his bad behaviour carries no consequence because he returns to the bosom of his loving family. Ahhh. Schweet.
Or stupid: you decide.
The film also makes very little use of Samuel L who is both quietly menacing but hardly present. His scenes are undoubtedly the best, but there ain’t that many of them.
Not a film that is so awful we had to turn it off, but one which could’ve been considerably better with a tighter plot, improved script and a touch less make-believe policing. (At one point, a murder suspect ups and lets himself out of police custody. Say what?)
6/10

Was not very impressed with this DVD.
Have not seen it advertised for cinema, so can only assume that it went
straight to DVD.
My main gripe is that it was either shot in the dark, or that my disc
was an iffy copy as both day light scenes and those shot at night were
very dark, so much so, that I could not always tell what was happening.
Neither Samuel L Jackson nor Dominic Cooper had much impact for me, and
they are both excellent actors when the script allows. The film is a
Canadian production, directed by Peter Howitt who directed Johnny English
he uses the nom de plume of Peter P Croudins on this film so perhaps even
he was not too sure about it?

A lack of subtitles did not help.
I could only muster 3 stars for this offering.

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.

'Reasonable Doubt' is a crime thriller film that released in 2014, direct to video and in some countries straight to television. The film has been panned by critics upon release and has went unnoticed.

The story revolves around a District Attorney (Dominic Cooper) who commits a fatal hit and run vehicle accident. In a turn of events another man (Samuel L. Jackson) is charged with the murder.

The concept was interesting with initial tension, twists and shocks. However, the downfall are the erratic screenplay, implausible events and giving away the story in the first thirty minutes. The main protagonist's repeated stupidity and the clichéd final stretch combined with the abrupt ending cemented the disappointment.

Dominic Cooper's character is a District Attorney, yet he is portrayed to be so so stupid. His acting doesn't help matters. Samuel L. Jackson plays the same character as if he's in Lakeview Terrace 2, which I hope never happens. Jackson's acting is nothing new nor interesting. The only good and convincing performance I noted was from Ryan Robbins who plays the role of Jimmy Logan.

The direction by Peter Howitt is poor as he loses control of a good idea. The end product is simply a waste with too many plot holes.

'Reasonable Doubt' appears to be a half baked adaptation of an incomplete script.
