Beyond a Reasonable Doubt (2009)
Critic Consensus: Hackneyed and over dramatic, this undercooked courtroom drama suffers from bad dialogue and a twist ending you'll see from a distance.

News & Interviews for Beyond a Reasonable Doubt
Critic Reviews for Beyond a Reasonable Doubt
A good rule to follow for wannabe gritty thrillers: Lead actors shouldn't remind you of late-night informercial pitchmen.
There's little in this pointless rehash to distract audiences from the pleasure of watching Tamblyn, a fine young actress whose direct, grownup stare belies her baby features.
What you won't be able to figure out is why this laughable yarn didn't go straight to DVD.
The leads can't lend either spunk or gravitas to what was already a preposterous yarn 50 years ago.
There are plenty of reasonable doubts about his mediocre legal thriller remake.
I've got no problem with movies that stack up twists like crazy straws. Hyam's script, however, depends on us being dumber than every character in the film-you'd have to reach protozoan levels just to resist wanting to strangle everyone in it.
Audience Reviews for Beyond a Reasonable Doubt
This modern remake of Fritz Lang's last American thriller is undeniably flawed - especially when you stop to think how preposterous it all really is -, but still it manages to be entertaining and tense sometimes, with a welcome twist in the end.
Brilliant narrative despite the few plot holes. Enjoyable to watch.
Not as bad as I heard it would be. And nobody plays a villain better than Michael Douglas. Gaps? Yes. A little far fetched? Yes. If for nothing else, see this for Michael Douglas.
