      Luuk V I don't understand all the bad reviews. Really a great movie, definitely recommended! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/09/23 Full Review Jeremy F I'm only 1 episode in, but really enjoyed the sharp, witty writing. It didn't feel belabored or forced to me and that was refreshing. Cast lineup is badass, too, and does a great job on screen! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/13/22 Full Review Audience Member A pretty unmemorable and uninspired thriller that felt like it was going through the motions despite offering a semi suspenseful, albeit totally outlandish and predictable, plot. I wasn't really a fan of the protagonist here and had a real hard time sympathizing with him or his self created predicament and only became interested when the serial killer angle was introduced. 4.5/10 Samuel L. Jackson Binge: Another cat and mouse game was afoot here, but this time with Jackson playing the role of the antagonist. This will often be more engaging for a viewer as those type of roles can allow an actor to express much more creativity and talent, however in this case Jackson's serial killer felt pretty bland. I would have been interested to hear more about his character's motivations instead of quickly glossing over huge chunks of important backstory in order to quickly explain plot points. *SLJ January #5 Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Not much to this movie. Decent acting but a terrible plot. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review samuel l An idiotic plot and moronic, underdeveloped characters make this not worth a watch. There's no way a man who had fatally ran over someone and left them to die would be able to conduct the court case, Mitch should have been identified based on the voice, he wouldn't have been able to escape the police station, he couldn't stop himself from breaking every law imaginable within the span of a few days, and the ending was predictable. The acting was mediocre, the dialogue was poor, there was essentially no character development, all of the characters were unlikeable, Clinton Davis was completely unbelievable throughout, the side characters barely made an appearance and brought nothing to the story, the policewoman was beyond stupid, and the action was bland and generic. However, the pacing was acceptable, the cinematography was pleasant, and the visual effects were ok. The soundtrack was forgettable. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Someone decided to make a cheap, ridiculous, paperback, murder story into a bad movie. Obviously nothing more than a paycheck for Samuel Jackson. Don't waste your time. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Jeannette Catsoulis New York Times Had Mr. Croudins focused more on Mitch's desire to distance himself from a wrong-side-of-the-tracks upbringing - and less on ticking genre boxes - his movie could only have been the better for it. Jan 16, 2014 Full Review Gary Goldstein Los Angeles Times Contrived and predictable yet fairly tense ... Jan 16, 2014 Full Review Ignatiy Vishnevetsky AV Club It moves fast (a rare quality for a contemporary thriller), but doesn't end up going anywhere interesting. Rated: C Jan 16, 2014 Full Review Debbie Lynn Elias Behind The Lens But bottom line -- there is no doubt about Reasonable Doubt -- it grabs your attention and holds on until the final verdict is in. Jan 8, 2020 Full Review Isaac Feldberg We Got This Covered There's no doubt in my mind that this dull, preposterous mess will be gone from my memory by this time tomorrow night. Rated: 3/10 Mar 17, 2014 Full Review Brian Orndorf Blu-ray.com A mindfield of idiocy and neglect in this poorly executed thriller. Truthfully, everyone is to blame. Only Howitt had the right idea to peel his name off the finished product. Rated: D Jan 23, 2014 Full Review Read all reviews
