Academy Award winner Anthony Hopkins and Academy Award nominee Ryan Gosling are brilliant in this "exceptionally suspenseful nail-biter" (Rex Reed) that's so smart it "doesn't let go, even after the final twist" (Gene Shalit, "Today"). Ted Crawford (Hopkins) brutally murders his wife and calmly waits for the police to arrest him. With the weapon and a signed confession in hand, Deputy D.A., Willy Beachum (Gosling), believes a conviction is a slam dunk; that is until the case completely unravels. Now, with little evidence, Beachum goes head to head with the cunning Mr. Crawford in a desperate search for the truth and the answer to one burning question: How is this guy getting away with murder?

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A provocative game that plays out with intelligence and wit.
Fresh: 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.
Fresh: Fracture is what audiences want when they go to a suspense thriller: a flashy, colorful villain; a protagonist who's imperfect enough to be interesting; and most of all a story that keeps viewers guessing, while playing fair.
Rotten: Gosling is both amazing and adrift in this almost thoroughly forgettable upscale legal drama and you're left praying that the stardom so surely coming his way doesn't come with a Hopkins clause attached.
silent strength = really good movie!
I stumbled on this movie on accident and decided to rent it late last night. I had never heard of this movie before, but I was looking for something smart, captive, and entertaining. I didn't want to be bored ; I wanted to be sucked in, and I wanted my attention to be held for the entire movie... and this movie does it! Anthony Hopkins is twisted and charming all at once. Ryan Goslings is phenomenal, and you won't be able to take your eyes off him for a second. Good, smart movie with silent strength. Definitely recommend!
Incredible acting and plot!
Anthony and Ryan do a superb acting job and play their roles to perfection. This movie will keep you watching every moment, and have you thinking about what happened and what might happen next. The ending is done brilliantly and has a nice twist on it!
Fantastic acting by Anthony Hopkins. And Ryan Gosling is just superb. I love this movie. Keeps you on the edge of your seat. Definite buy!
