A smart and snappy thriller that makes light work of its ethical dilemmas, Fracture is a little too neat and tidy to stick in the mind for long, but the Hopkins-Gosling pairing is choice, and neither comes up short.

The two leads are on fine form, but the surrounding structure is too familiar from a thousand other films. Still, tense and occasionally twisty stuff.

Fracture has some involving moments and bright ideas, but it's such a pedestrian execution that it could have just as easily been made as a TV movie with Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Kelsey Grammer.

Part police procedural, part courtroom hijinks, and part cunning murder plot, Gregory Hoblit's new movie brings the usual canards.

But the thing is pre-ordained and the viewer knows how it's going to end from the minute Ted is acquitted. However, if you're a L&O fan, it's worth a look.

A smart film made with strong talent, but none of them seem to be operating at their best - and it shows

The film could have used a dose of heightened urgency, but 'Fracture' is nonetheless a highly watchable, glossy-looking crime drama that for once taxes the brain without punishing the eyes and ears with gratuitous abandon.

FRACTURE is an enjoyable movie aimed at an adult audience. It doesn't condescend nor does it take the viewer for granted.

With a film this gleefully convoluted, we know we'll never figure it out before the screenwriters are ready to tell us. So we hang on and enjoy the ride.

A solid, old-fashioned game of mental cat and mouse between two fine actors.

With the exception of its ending, which offers a passable twist, very little about this courtroom suspense thriller is remarkable or reproachable.

There's nothing like merit winning the case and this little gem of entertainment with a mental edge is a good brief on the possibilities.

Fracture is the kind of polished cat-and-mouse movie thriller that depends entirely on the cat and the mouse having read and agreed to the script in advance.

The paper-thin story...would barely have passed as a half-hour episode of Alfred Hitchcock Presents...

A showcase of acting's present and future: one of the greatest living actors cast as the wily, wise vet, and one of Hollywood's most promising young talents as the rising star.

Director Gregory Hoblit's sterile blue visuals are par for the lack of dramatic impact.
