5.0 out of 5 stars Two great actors in an excellent thriller!, 17 July 2013
This review is from: Fracture (DVD)
Any film with Anthony Hopkins and Ryan Gosling as the leading actors is almost guaranteed to be good, and 2007's 'Fracture' does not disappoint.

To be honest, it has all the elements of the kind of movies that I like best anyway. 'Fracture' is a Crime/Mystery/Thriller, which is clever, gripping, atmospheric and well acted. I know that many people probably worked out how the film was going to pan out and what had happened to the so-called 'missing evidence', but I didn't, and as a result was kept intrigued and eager to find out what was going to happen next. When the mystery was finally solved, I thought how clever it had all been done.

In Los Angeles, Ted Crawford (Hopkins) witnesses his much younger wife (played by Embeth Davidtz) and her lover, Lieutenant Robert Nunally (Billy Burke) in the swimming pool of a hotel together. When she comes home, Crawford shoots her, and awaits calmly for the police to arrest him. Young, clever but arrogant Deputy D.A. Willy Beachum (Gosling) believes Crawford's fate is sealed and the case is cut and dry, until he goes head to head with Crawford in a cunning game of cat and mouse, leading up to the answer of that burning question: How is this man getting away with murder?

The game of intellectual chess between Hopkins and Gosling's characters was fantastic to watch, these two worked well together, and although we knew Anthony was already a great actor, if child star Ryan was still trying to prove himself worthy as a serious movie star, he certainly did in 'Fracture'.

Highly recommended!
