2.0 out of 5 stars Incredulous Dec 31 2009
By caseygirl TOP 1000 REVIEWER
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars 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

3.0 out of 5 stars An interesting dilemma Sept. 14 2009
By 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.

1.0 out of 5 stars 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.

1.0 out of 5 stars 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?

1.0 out of 5 stars Beyond Any Reason, Logic, or Intelligence--This Twisty Legal Thriller Tries For Clever But Misses The Mark Dec 21 2010
By K. Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
There are few things that are so chilling in film as to watch a movie that is so completely lost in plotting that there can be no redemption. Almost every film has some bright spot, some point of interest. Unfortunately, the greatest honor I can bestow upon "Beyond A Reasonable Doubt" is that it is, without equal, perhaps the silliest movie I've watched in the last year. Peter Hyams, the director, is a workmanlike pro that's been around forever. More commercial than artistic, Hyams' spotty resume includes (of all things) Van Damme's best picture ("Timecop"), one of Schwarzenegger's worst ("End of Days") and one of my favorite good/bad movies "Capricorn One" (which despite some clunky acting, I could still watch endlessly). Reuniting his "The Star Chamber" lead, Michael Douglas, for this legal thriller probably seemed like a decent idea--but, oh, this one is painful.

When an ambitious reporter (Jesse Metcalf) discovers some irregularities in the many convictions of a high-power lawyer and gubernatorial candidate (Douglas)--he sees breaking a big scandal as a ticket to the big time. Concocting the most elaborately inane scheme ever to frame himself for murder, Metcalf is preposterously out of his depth. Even our greatest actor alive couldn't sell this ridiculous piece of nonsense and, needless to say, Metcalf isn't any more up to the task. This, however, being a tricky legal thriller--there are plenty of very obvious (I mean surprising, yes that's what I meant) revelations in store for the viewers. However, even knowing every twist well in advance STILL doesn't make the plot any more feasible.

Hyams and team are perhaps hoping we've never seen a real legal thriller. Someone must have thought that "Beyond A Reasonable Doubt" was a clever entertainment and perhaps one version of the script was. But devising a whole movie around "surprise" twists with no foundation isn't particularly clever--it's really just lazy. And, to top it off, if the "surprises" have no surprise factor--that just makes the whole experience practically insufferable. "Beyond A Reasonable Doubt" is an unimaginative and uber-silly retread of dozens of other, better stories. It's biggest sin, however, is to have the smarmy and loathsome Douglas (his trademark character, not he himself) and then to barely use him. I actually hated "Beyond A Reasonable Doubt." Even if it wasn't a great film, it could have been a pleasantly entertaining one. But suspension of disbelief aside, the screenplay was just too preposterous--I literally laughed out loud, but not in a good way. KGHarris, 12/10.
