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.

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!

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.

Nothing new about this and despite the efforts of both Dominic Cooper and Samuel L Jackson, even they can't lift this very high. The story is easy to get into but can't help thinking the two did this because they were bored and at times it shows. Watch if there is nothing else to hand.

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.

Mitch Brockden (Dominic Cooper) knew he was in serious trouble when he drove his black SUV into a man crossing the road. Mitch, a District Attorney, had been out drinking with friends. Now the end of his career wasn't only in sight, it was staring him right in his face. End of his career and possibly end of his freedom if the man died. Panicking, he assures the badly injured man (Karl Thordarson) that he's calling for an ambulance, which he does, but then Brocken drives off. Clinton Davis (Samuel L. Jackson) is almost immediately arrested for the crime of killing the man, protesting that he was only taking him to hospital when police stopped Davis because of a broken tail light and then spotted blood dripping out of the back of his van. Feeling guilty at the thought of someone going to prison for a crime he didn't commit, Mitch intentionally messes up the prosecution so that Davis goes free. But is Davis as innocent as he thought?

Reasonable Doubt (2014) is an interesting movie even if the plot might seem a bit contrived at times. Some reviewers have complained at its predictability and, granted, it's not the finest thriller of its kind to ever appear on a big (or small) screen, but it's still entertaining. It's a bit difficult to tell you about plot holes, and what made it worth watching, without spoiling it for you but I thought Dominic Cooper and Samuel L. Jackson were well cast in their roles and I enjoyed the movie from beginning to end.

Reasonable Doubt confronts a moral dilemma. What would you do if you were wealthy and successful, with everything you'd ever wanted and worked for, and then knew your whole life was about to be totally ruined because you had made a terrible, stupid, irreversible mistake? It's easy to say you'd ring the ambulance and police and admit your guilt, isn't it? :)
