Fracture

Willy Beachum is about to change his successful job as DA for a well-paid job at a corporate lawfirm. Only things he still need to do is sign a contract and round up his last case. Things look pretty simple with that case: Ted Crawford shot his wife and confessed to the cop that came to arrest him. They even have a written confession! However, what Willy doesn’t know is that Ted carefuly planned everything and when during trial Crawford suddenly comes with a couple of very surprising statements, it looks like he’ll walk. If Willy doesn’t manage to get Crawford in jail, he can kiss his well-paid new job goodbye and his reputation along with it.

Sound and Vision:
The image quality is decent but doesn’t shine at any time. There’s enough detail, no obnoxious compression errors, a decent contrast and all, but at no point you’ll be amazed.

The same can be said about the sound which is good with crystal dialogues but nothing really stands out

Extras:
A couple of deleted and alternative scenes, that’s all.

Conclusion:
Fracture is a very good movie for those that like cat & mouse games or court dramas. The suspense is constantly present and Anthony Hopkins shines again like in Silence of the Lambs. It’s like watching a less violent version of Hannibal Lecter. Great! Without a doubt, Fracture is one of the better movies we’ve seen lately and you won’t regret getting this one. Only minor downpoints are the quite thin extras.

Our Score:
7.0
