Critic Reviews for Reasonable Doubt

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (5)

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

January 17, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

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 ...

January 16, 2014 | Full Review…

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

January 16, 2014 | Rating: C | Full Review…

You may feel as if you're watching two or three abbreviated episodes of Law & Order in quick succession rather than a fully realized movie.

January 13, 2014 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

But bottom line -- there is no doubt about Reasonable Doubt -- it grabs your attention and holds on until the final verdict is in.

Audience Reviews for Reasonable Doubt

I must remember to check RT before watching everything on Netflix. This film is a dull and pointless exercise, Jackson obviously made this for some cash. The director doesn't do anything interesting with the concept and the actors are sleepwalking through a 80s film script. The film is much to predictable and the seriousness is laughable at times. This is another example of why the mid to low range thrillers struggle to do well, crappy films like this. Good trailer, bad film. 15-05-2017.

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.

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.
