Ryan Gosling is Willy Beachum, a hot-shot prosecutor who shows up for what he believes is an open-and-shut case. Ted Crawford (Anthony Hopkins) has shot his wife and confessed but little does Beachum know that the arresting officer was having an affair with the victim... It’s a fun set-up, with the mischievous Crawford representing himself and stitching up Beachum at every turn. The dialogue is lively and often witty, underpinning the erotic courtroom-thriller vibe with a healthy dose of irreverence. Unfortunately, we’re let in on far too much of the villain’s plan and the film muses for too long on legal machinations: whole sections resemble TV’s ‘Law And Order’. The luminous Rosamund Pike is also stuck with a thankless turn as a decidedly unprofessional attorney. Still, a strong cast and smart-talking characters help elevate this into very watchable territory, with just enough suspense and style to win through.

Fracture might be very predictable and not exactly original, but it is on the other hand well-made, and Anthony Hopkins knows this role perfectly.
