Format: DVD
I thought this might be a good story but it is so absoulutely far fetched it gets laughable. Most thriller type movies are but this one is a head scratcher. the premise of the story is so unbelievable, but then I think it could have been swallowed if hadn't been for the incredibly bad acting of Jesse Metcalfe.The guy playing his side kick is also not suited to the role at all. I can't recall when I have seen such poor acting as Metcalfe. Perhaps it was due to the very obvious editing of the movie. I don't even think Michael Douglas was at his best although I think he did the most of what the script offered. Amber Tamblyn was ok, but I think a more mature type of woman would have been better in this role, also inthe role of C.J. Nicholas (Metcalfe). My recommendation? Give this one a miss!

A Good Surprise! Nov. 18 2009
By Demario Moore - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I did not expect much from this movie. Mostly because it stars Jesse Metcalfe and Amber Tamblyn. Amber is ok but Jesse Metcalfe clearly needs some more practice. He's so emotionless. This movie would have been even better if he were replaced with a better actor. Sorry, but the guy needs work. I was definately wrong about the film though. This is actually a pretty good film. It's about this reporter that decides to frame himself for murder so he can expose the dirty D.A. played by the great Micheal Douglas. This movie has a really strong script. I don't think anyone with common sense would frame themselves for murder but this movie had me going. It also has this surprise ending that will make your jaw hit the floor. I would definately rent this one. If you can find it cheap on DVD it might even be worth buying. Decent actors,good story, and a surprise ending, you can't ask for much more than that. At least not from a straight to dvd movie. HOLLA

An interesting dilemma Sept. 14 2009
By G. Edmonson - Published on Amazon.com
What happens when your plan to convict a guilty man backfires? In "Beyond a Reasaonable Doubt", a remake of the 1956 film noir movie of the same name, a journalist, C.J. Nicholas (Jesse Metcalfe) finds himself in this predicament. In attempting to snare the lawyer Martin Hunter (Michael Douglas) for tampering with evidence, C.J. Nicholas instead finds himself convicted of a crime he never actually committed. This interesting premise leads us into the real action of the story, as his girlfriend, Ella Crystal (Amber Tamblyn), attempts to uncover the truth, and save him from his impending death sentence. The film seems to play out predictably from here, or so we think, but then another twist leads us into an altogether new direction. Once this movie, directed by Peter Hymms, finally gets moving, it's an engaging, edge of your seat thriller.

Made Only $17,000 in Theaters for a Reason Jan. 21 2010
By Compay - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
What speaks volumes about the overall quality of this movie is that it was released in only half a dozen movie theaters nationwide, and grossed less than 20k at the box office.

At best it's an average movie with no quality acting, which reflects the fact that only 5% of voters on Rotten Tomatoes actually enjoyed it. The complications that arise with our main character as the movie progresses are predictable, as is the "twist" that occurs at the film's conclusion.

The biggest mystery of this film is how they were able to land Michael Douglas on the cast. Douglas has virtually no real screen time in this movie, which is a major disappointment for those of us who enjoyed his work in movies like King of California, Wall Street and Basic Instinct. No need to wait for the jury to return to the courtoom; my verdict is that it's not worth even a Redbox rental.

B Movie. Much worse than a CSI TV show. Dec 25 2009
By SuzieQ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Amateurish B movie remake of a 1956 RKO film. Uses every cliche in the book. Awful! How did they get Michael Douglas to do this film?

Our Modern Day Plan 9 From Outer Space Jan. 3 2010
By Lily - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This is one of the most unintentionally funny and convoluted movies that I have ever seen in my life. Michael Douglas used to have an illustrious and charismatic career. He now resorts to associating and SELLING his name to a movie in which he appears for less than 15 minutes total screen time. (Sort of like the has-been Val Kilmer's appearance in recent Dead Man's Bounty where he is dead in the whole movie and is not a part of the plot in any shape and manner). Jesse Metcalf and Joel David Moore portray two reporters and are two of the worst actors in the world. Their attempt at relevance and hip is to grow two day growth beards and to act like Jimmy Olsen, cub reporter. However, Jimmy Olsen is MENSA material compared to these two very unpleasant people. I'd rather watch wood warp and paint chip than see these two again. The plot basically is about an up-and-coming district attorney on his way to governorship who is suspected, by these two rodent parasitic reporters, of planting evidence to win every case that he tries. Their idea of implicating him is for one bearded wonder to actually implicate himself in a murder crime, record a journal DVD of specific points of innocence, get busted and then see what additional evidence the DA plants. This is a very, very bad idea just in case something goes wrong. And it's a bad idea for a movie because everything goes wrong in the film. Examples of bad filmmaking include the partner cub reporter rushing to his safety deposit box to retrieve the DVD evidence of innocence and being in a high speed car chase with a stereotypical mean police officer. This scene was obviously put in just to hasten the action, in an otherwise boring story. Examples of faulty logic includes the beautiful Amber Tamblyn, also as an up and coming assistant to Michael Douglas, sleeping with the inept reporter after one night of Chinese fast food. They compare sexy stares and then sexy sackings with lack of motive or adequate reasoning as even simple need for lust would have sufficed. The well-off Ms. Tamblyn then asks about the "L" word to her Chinese food bed mate. That's love not lesbian. There must be some clinical personality flaw in this DA assistant's trait to jump to and desire to commit without even knowing anything about the person whom she beds. Examples of more faulty logic includes, a 30 second appearance of Michael Douglas, visiting the now charged reporter in prison to taunt him. I'm sure that a high profile DA on his way to governorship would not just show up at prison just in case other REAL, GOOD reporters and photographers may be in the vicinity with questions and 8 by 10 glossies for the next morning's edition. Examples of more faulty logic include Ms. Tamblyn showing up at various sites to investigate the charges against her unshaven lover. Somebody, somewhere, just somehow may recognize her and may tell her "daddy" DA is a logic that seemed to have escaped her mind. Then, as a final outcome, the mystery about doctored photographs is solved by untrained geeky student interns, no less, nicely implicating the DA. And the final twist ending, which I will not reveal, came out of left field with no apparent reason or need other than to create coffee pot morning banter at the office for boring state workers. You should either avoid this movie if you are a Michael Douglas fan, of which I am OR see it as a part of a triple feature with Gigli (J. Lo Turkey), Battlefield Earth (always over-rated John Travolta squawker, i.e. also see Taking of Pelham) or Plan Nine from Outer Space (Ed Wood's mohair shocker). You have been warned.
