When Jimmy trails Clinton in his car they travel quite a distance before arriving at the mill works. This includes crossing a bridge (presumably over a river). When Mitch realises Jimmy is in trouble he runs at speed to the mill covering the rather long distance in a much shorter time than the two drivers did and with no indication of crossing either a bridge or a river.

The idea behind "Reasonable Doubt" is a pretty nifty one, (a young, hotshot prosecutor is involved in a hit-and-run and then finds himself prosecuting another man accused of the crime, and that's just the beginning of his problems), and to be fair what follows does make for a moderately exciting, if a nevertheless, preposterous thriller. (It also helps that Samuel L Jackson is involved). But while the initial idea may be good, the script is atrocious and Dominic Cooper's performance as the prosecutor is way off the mark; he just seems to be going through the motions and his character is impossible to take seriously. Nor does director Peter Howitt, (credited as Peter P Croudins) show any flair or apparent interest in the material. It's watchable in that of made-for-TV-movie kind of way but it could have been so much more.
