June 30, 2007
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.
June 30, 2007
The main draw, of course, is watching Hopkins and Gosling go head-to-head. And both are more than up to the challenge.

Enjoyable, stylishly directed thriller with a gripping plot and superb performances from Gosling and Hopkins.
June 30, 2007
The real pleasure in Fracture is watching Hopkins and Gosling, the elder statesman and brash young firebrand of the current cinema's greatest actors, go at it.
June 30, 2007
Anthony Hopkins and Ryan Gosling are electrifying in Gregory Hoblit's otherwise mediocre thriller.
June 30, 2007
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.
June 30, 2007
An intriguing, gleaming, exciting work.

If you like your thrillers served chilled, Fracture won't disappoint.

A smart film made with strong talent, but none of them seem to be operating at their best - and it shows
May 8, 2007
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.
May 3, 2007
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.
May 2, 2007
A solid, old-fashioned game of mental cat and mouse between two fine actors.
April 30, 2007
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.
April 30, 2007
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.
April 27, 2007
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.
April 25, 2007
There's nothing all that much wrong except that it feels like a TV drama that found its way to the big screen by virtue of stars Anthony Hopkins and Ryan Gosling.
April 24, 2007
Fracture is good, it's steady, but it is flat. It fails to deliver any high points of drama or confrontation, even at the payoff.
