2007’s Fracture was one of the films that flew under the radar when it was first released, coming out the same year that highly anticipated sequels like Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End and Spider-Man 3 did. But thanks to television and DVD releases, films can often find success later on (just look at Office Space). Having finally gotten the chance to view this film, I can say that while it didn’t quite live up to my expectations, it was nonetheless a smart, thought-provoking thriller with standout performances from Ryan Gosling and Anthony Hopkins.
