Two Line Reviews - #359

Movie: Fracture (2006)

Plot: An aeronautics expert turns into a meticulate murderer when he gets to know of his wife's affair with a SWAT agent. He defends himself on court and a lawyer who has impressively made his way up the ladder falls for the bait the murderer sets and loses a golden offer from a reputed firm. Is it the career of the lawyer or the meticulousness of the murderer that gets fractured? We get to see that. in the end.

  • The director Gregory Hoblit has made a fine casting, supported by an intense screenplay by Daniel Pyne and the film's magic works well to an extent.
  • Anothony Hopkins plays to perfection in a turf that he has made his own over the years!
  • Ryan Gosling was the surprise package. This is the best I have seen of him - Stylish, charismatic and delivers nicely. Rosamund Pike is beautiful and is pleasing when on screen.
  • The twists to the tale make this crime-thriller a worthwhile watch.
Hannibal Lecter, minus the psychological convolutions!
