Too bland to succeed
21 July 2018 | by Wizard-8See all my reviews

Although the core premise of "Reasonable Doubt" has been done in various ways over the years, it still could have worked with enough good writing that threw in some well executed twists. However, the story as it is does not manage to engage the viewer that much. In a movie like this, you really need to feel the screws slowly tightening on the main character. But for over two-thirds of the movie, the main character does not seem to be under a lot of pressure, almost treating his situation as it was a minor inconvenience. Even when things eventually start to turn bad for the character, actor Dominic Cooper is so underwhelming that you don't care one way or another. The script is quite bad at times, having some plot twists that are kind of hard to swallow, and also having a story that's so thin that there are over 10 minutes of closing credits to try and pad out the movie to a normal running time. The ending of the movie, where it's very unclear of the eventual fate of Cooper's character, is the icing on the cake. The movie has professional production values, so at least it's nice to look at, at least if you are not driven asleep by the slow and passionless story. It's no surprise that Telefilm Canada (the nation's main feature film funding agency) backed this film, since they have traditionally made poor choices as to film projects to fund.
