About the Movie

High profile lawyer, Mark Hunter (Michael Douglas) has an impeccable record putting criminals behind bars and is a shoo-in for governor in the upcoming election. But when ambitious rookie journalist, C.J. (Jesse Metcalfe) begins investigating Hunter for tampering with evidence to secure his convictions, the district attorney’s perfect record is up for scrutiny. Commencing a risky game of cat and mouse with Hunter, C.J. frames himself as a murder suspect to catch the corrupt D.A. in the act. Romantically involved with C.J. but unaware of his assignment, assistant D.A. Ella Crystal (Amber Tamblyn) becomes caught between her boss’s political ambitions and C.J.’s dangerous exposé. As mounting evidence stacks up against both men, Ella’s own life becomes threatened when she discovers incriminating proof that puts the fate of both C.J.’s innocence and Hunter’s reputation in her hands.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Despite excellent stunt work and a too-brief appearance by Orlando Jones as an unflappable cop, the movie -- unlike Mr. Douglas's hairdo -- never rises above mediocrity. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Douglas makes smarm a chewy pleasure, but this is a noir in search of a hero we can root for because we actually buy what he's doing. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: What I can't figure out is how director Peter Hyams can remake a 1956 movie from the great Fritz Lang and not learn anything about suspense, pacing and storytelling in the process. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Feb 2, 2011

Rotten: Like its title, Beyond a Reasonable Doubt is a generic, forgettable courtroom thriller. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Jul 7, 2010

Poor - Beyond a reasonable doubt!

Poor plot, poor acting and predictable! Waste of money and time!

The worst

This could easily be the worst movie I have seen since 1975. For God's sake DON"T pay to own it!!

Great Movie!

This is a great movie. very unpredictable. The acting is very Good and you cant see the twists and turns coming! I would not buy because since its a thriller the repeatability factor is not good but definitely rent!
