If there's a microscopic fracture in a metal, brilliant engineer Ted Crawford (Anthony Hopkins) will find it. And if there's the tiniest flaw in his cover-up of shooting his unfaithful wife, Crawford defies you - and prosecutor Willy Beachum (Ryan Gosling) - to find it. Beachum's legal talents and ethics are pushed to the limit as he faces off against Crawford in the cat-and-mouse moves and countermoves of "Fracture".
Fantastic plot but desperately disappointing acting
- Fracture review by JD
Where was Hopkins? Is this a retirement booster? I have never seen such a poor performance. The rest of the actors fill the usual hero falls in love with girl background rubbish that you expect. None of the acting was interesting. I hope the plot is used again as there are lots of twists.

Excellent Crime Thriller
- Fracture review by Rob S
This is an excelent thriller and I don't think it really matters if you work out (which is likely and exactly what we did) how Hopkins did it. It doesn't spoil the film as you're then intriged as to how he is going to get caught.
It's not a classic, but as the above reviewer said - it's a Ronseal!
