I was going to write just the word, WONDERFUL, and nothing else as my review; then it was brought to my attention that I am paid at the newspaper, by the word. I have seen many movies in my five plus years in Greenville, few as well crafted as this murder mystery / courtroom melodrama. Anthony Hopkins takes control of the movie and he knows how to push all the right emotional buttons -- not his own, ours. You want to see this mad genius fall and yet, you can't imagine how that can be done in a legal manner. Casting an unknown like Josh Gosling opposite Hopkins, makes the task seem even more impossible. I am not greedy, I will return to my original evaluation, with a small profit in hand. FRACTURE is WONDERFUL !
