Storyline

Wealthy, brilliant, and meticulous Ted Crawford (Sir Anthony Hopkins), a structural engineer in Los Angeles, shoots his wife Jennifer (Embeth Davidtz) and entraps her lover, Lieutenant Robert "Rob" Nunally (Billy Burke). He signs a confession. At the arraignment, he asserts his rights to represent himself and asks the court to move immediately to trial. The prosecutor is Willy Beachum (Ryan Gosling), a hotshot who's soon to join a fancy civil-law firm, told by everyone it's an open and shut case. Crawford sees Beachum's weakness, the hairline fracture of his character: Willy's a winner. The engineer sets in motion a clockwork crime with all of the objects moving in ways he predicts.

VERY Important! Make sure to watch the Blu-ray release. The ending is substantially better. Blu-ray: Excellent A:9 V:9
29 May 2017 | by lathe-of-heavenSee all my reviews

Normally with over 300 reviews already for an older film, I wouldn't presume to add my lowly and wretched opinion which has likely already been very well covered by so many reviews.

BUT... In this case, there is one VERY VERY important difference...

And, that is as I stated in my Summary above. When I first saw this film, it was quite good for the most part, BUT the ending was so seriously stupid that I felt it ruined the movie. Obviously, I will not go into the details here, but after all these years I just now saw the Blu-ray version, and the way it ended was HUGELY better! Really... It honestly made all the difference.

So, for that reason alone, I just had to come here and mention it. If you want to watch the film, PLEASE do make SURE to see the newer Blu- ray version of it, because it truly makes all the difference the way they have structured the ending. Interestingly, 2 'Alternate Endings' are included in the Blu-ray. I think that it was the 2nd one that I had seen when I first watched the film. When you see it, AFTER watching the newer version, I'm quite sure you will see what I mean.

Otherwise, an excellent movie, particularly the lighting and photography. I really liked the soundtrack too. I think it is one of Gregory Hoblit's better films. Overall a pretty simple story, but one directed and acted very well.
