Film Review - Reasonable Doubt

REASONABLE DOUBT Dominic Cooper

The title “Reasonable Doubt” suggests a legal drama with a thriller edge, keeping in step with a genre that’s become unpopular in recent years, with 2011’s “The Lincoln Lawyer” perhaps the most recent example of a courtroom-based hit. What’s surprising about “Reasonable Doubt” is how desperately it refuses cerebral pursuits, dropping elements of mystery and legalese to sprint ahead as an offering of suspense, and a poor one at that. Riddled with unanswered questions and problematic motivations, the picture is series of feeble performances and dreadful scenes trying to pass itself off as excitement, hoping to appeal to base sensibilities instead of teasing the viewer with provocative questions of guilt.
