Critic Reviews for Reasonable Doubt

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (4)

Cooper and Jackson never really develop as characters, and the film hurtles towards a pat, violent conclusion.

Had Mr. Croudins focused more on Mitch's desire to distance himself from a wrong-side-of-the-tracks upbringing - and less on ticking genre boxes - his movie could only have been the better for it.

Contrived and predictable yet fairly tense ...

It moves fast (a rare quality for a contemporary thriller), but doesn't end up going anywhere interesting.

There's no doubt in my mind that this dull, preposterous mess will be gone from my memory by this time tomorrow night.

We Got This Covered

A mindfield of idiocy and neglect in this poorly executed thriller. Truthfully, everyone is to blame. Only Howitt had the right idea to peel his name off the finished product.

Audience Reviews for Reasonable Doubt


Proof is the burden.

Medriocre movie! Welcome to the world of Canadian Movies buddy. Great actors just going through the motions,bad editing,bad continuity,bad cinematography. At first this movie had a little tension but as time rolled on it started to become far fetched. Year after year these generic thrillers keep getting made even though they offer nothing refreshing or new to the genre. While the film itself is merely mediocre, it still baffles me why writers and directors feel the need to wrap their films up in a nice neat package. It is not only disrespectful to the audience but it does an injustice to the subject theme.

Up-and-coming District Attorney, Mitch Brockton is involved in a fatal hit-and-run, but Clinton Davis, is found with the body and charged with murder. Believing that Davis is innocent, Brockton is compelled to throw the trial. Soon after, Brocton's perfect life begins to unravel as he realizes that the man he set free is hiding a secret that will destroy him.

Howard Stark and Nick Fury face off in a movie with some modicum of originality. Not a lot, but some, and that's enough to make it watchable.
