4.0 out of 5 stars No accounting for taste, 23 Oct 2007
This review is from: Fracture [DVD] (DVD)
There really is no accounting for taste. Because of the rather poor reviews generally here, I decided to leave this one alone, even though it sounded like my type of film. When it came down in price dramatically at the supermarket (apologies to Amazon) I decided to buy it anyway. And loved it.

Fair comment on Hopkins' varying accents (and it was annoying, especially towards the end) but altogether an excellent film. As Hopkins pits his wits against the brilliant but 'too clever for his own good' lawyer you find yourself rooting for Hopkins who is actually the bad guy. It's only when the film concludes that you realise you should never have been rooting for him in the first place. My advice is, if you like psychological thrillers, go for it.

Have you just ruined the film for me?

I hope not. . . . I've just bought this film.

I really hope not, and I do apologise if I have. I'm afraid I'm one of those dreadful people who never mind being told the 'whole story' of a film or book before I've seen or read it, and therefore think that everyone else is of like mind. Watch it, then bless or curse me at your leisure.
