After awakening from a coma with no idea who he is, Dylan White (Callum Blue) creates a safe and normal life for himself. It doesn't last long: horrifying visions start to interrupt his waking moments. Following clues that take him to the dark underbelly of New Orleans, Dylan meets his arch nemesis Quincy (Vinnie Jones) and soon finds that both his life and soul are in danger. FRACTURED is a trip to the dark side, noir-style: bad men, bad dames, bad sex and bad intentions.Written by
The dark tone, the music, lend to the main character's detective-like quest to recall his past. Others that reviewed the movie positively provide considerably more detail than I am willing to offer. For me, Fractured falls into the category where knowing much about it prior to seeing it lessens the intrigue, hurting the overall experience. Hollywood is increasingly more prone to do sequels and originality suffers. Layer onto that how special effects are becoming quite overly used as a way to boost ticket sales, which I am not a fan, and it amounts to so much of the same. Character-driven plots seldom tally big box office. There are exceptions. Fractured may be one of those but only over the course of time, should word-of-mouth be the catalyst.
Vinnie Jones proves to be a very effective villain. The movie's most appealing aspects include how all of us are a mix of good and evil. I found it haunting in the regard that it had me questioning certain parts of my life that I certainly regret. That said, the movie is too hard core for theaters and should be avoided if you have an aversion to nudity, gore, violence and/or the subjugation of women. However, there are some very memorable scenes. I especially like the bar scene where the Callum Blue character meets a woman you'd probably not be bringing home to mom.
