    Lovely CGT in 'Fracture'.....

    There's a scene early in the movie 'Fracture' in which Antony Hopkins drives a stunning CGT from an aircraft hangar to a hotel and then to his home in this movie.

    It's set in LA, the natural light is perfect, the yellow PCCB brake calipers are there for all to see...what a gorgeous car making such a gorgeous sound....his wife drives a 987S and you later see that they also have a Cayenne...

    The movie was very entertaining too!

    Re: Lovely CGT in 'Fracture'.....

    thanks for the tip im gonna watch it

    Re: Lovely CGT in 'Fracture'.....

    Thank you very much.

    My favourite actor, with one of the nicest cars...fantastic!

    Re: Lovely CGT in 'Fracture'.....

    Yes i also noticed the CGT on the advertisement, theres some rather good films coming out..

    I must see this one.....

    Heres the website

    it's got some interactive thing where you have to find the evidence and open the end box...?

    My brother first spotted the gt in the advert and he said theres an advert with a gt in it.

    When you see a cgt one wouldnt think they have such a high cost!

    You sure your brother didn't see an ad for Redline?

    It really is a gorgeous machine...words can't describe it

    Re: Lovely CGT in 'Fracture'.....

    Easy, what did you think of the film? I loved it to be honest...but then I'm a law novice and no nothing about the accuracy of anything that was going on.

    Everytime I hear the carrera gt I think wow...what an engine!

    Re: Lovely CGT in 'Fracture'.....

    I loved the movie too. I'm a big Anthony Hopkins fan.

    To be frank, I wasn't that convinced by Ryan Gosling's portrayal of the character he was playing. Sure, he was the 'cocky, arrogant prosecutor with a 97% success ratio' but he just didn't seem believable to me as a lawyer.

    Beautiful home too...just like what I would build. I liked the old BMW 635 CSI too which Gosling drove. Lovely old car...

    About the plot, wasn't it just a bit TOO coincidental that the hostage negotiator who approaches Hopkins is the same guy that is having an affair with Hopkins's wife? That the same policeman insists on actually being present during the interrogation thereby rendering his own evidence and any evidence given by Hopkins in his presence both inadmissible? That there was an opportunity to switch the murder weapon with that policeman's own gun?

    Sure, Hopkins's character PLANNED all these things. I know Hopkins's character is an incredibly precise man, an aeronautical engineer who builds clocks and owns a number of Porsches....(only a Porsche is a precise enough car for this man But how could he be 100% sure that all these plans would indeed happen?

    Having said all that, I thought it was very clever that Gosling found a way to render the 'double jeopardy' rules irrelevant by arguing that the acquittal on charges of attempted murder could not be a bar to a prosecution on a charge of murder once Hopkins had switched off the life support machine...

    I have to say I'm no expert on the California penal code nor am I admitted in the State of California so I'm no expert in their laws...

    We did have similar rules (called 'autrefois acquit' or the rule against double jeopardy) in this country until a year or so ago (but thanks to David Blunkett and bloody New Labour, we don't have those rules anymore even though these rules had worked perfectly well for centuries).

    All in all, I gave that film 4 stars out of 5. I enjoyed it very much...I would warmly recommend this film to others here....it's still on general release here in the UK...maybe it was out on general release in the US a few months ago? They often get to see Hollywood films months before we do...

    Re: Lovely CGT in 'Fracture'.....

    I really enjoyed the movie- it had a real sophisticated feel to it.

    Re: Lovely CGT in 'Fracture'.....

    I went to see it last weekend and absolutely loved it. Definitely in my top five movie picks!
    I loved how sarcastic and crass Anthony Hopkins was, even in the most tense moments I'd just burst out laughing.

    Plus Easy, are you sure that's a 635? It had the same 2 door shape, but didn't look like the earlier 6 series I know.

    Re: Lovely CGT in 'Fracture'.....

    I can't be sure either It just looked like the old BMW 635 CSI that were sold during the late 1970s/early 1980s...

    I thought that....and then I realised......thats why its a film! Would be bloodly crap movie if it didn't actually work..imagine that; films with a possible premises that go wrong for the characters..actually, sounds like a good idea! Could make for some interesting plot twists....Anyone have tarantino's number?

    Re: Lovely CGT in 'Fracture'.....

    I just watched the trailer online...is there a 987 in the movie as well?

    Re: Lovely CGT in 'Fracture'.....

    Yes I believe his wife drives one.

    Re: Lovely CGT in 'Fracture'.....

    Yes - she drives a 987S when travelling back home after being with her lover at a hotel.
