After an accident, Ray, played by Sam Worthington, has to take his daughter to the hospital. But something funny is going on at the hospital, which comes to a head with they take his wife and daughter for tests and she doesn’t return. Not only does she not return, but the hospital has no record of his wife or daughter ever having been there. He must now rescue his family from an organ harvesting operation being run out of the hospital.
OR DOES HE??? *dramatic music plays*
There are questions about whether he’s really perceiving things as they are while the hospital staff attempts to gaslight him and make him believe that he’s for all intents and purposes crazy.
OR IS HE??? *dramatic music plays*
Okay, I have to add these dramatic bits to this review because they’re more dramatic than the actual movie. It’s pretty obvious rather quickly what’s going on. Part of the problem may be the short runtime combined with a kind of lengthy setup. The setup seems to be designed to convey the sense of waiting long times in the hospital ER waiting room (…ah hah hah social commentary…) But this lengthy first act cuts into the time that could be used to build mystery and tension. As it is, it almost seems like a long “Twilight Zone” episode.
If you want an “Are they crazy or not?” film that’s much better, check out “Flightplan” with Jodie Foster. But “Fractured” is a generally poor take on the genre and I can only recommend it if you really have nothing else to watch or do.
When a movie holds a mystery, that’s great, but when a movie just straight-up lies to you, that’s crap. _Fractured_ is the latter.
_Final rating:★½: – Boring/disappointing. Avoid where possible._
A nice quick 90s style VHS thriller, and Sam’s pretty good too.
Went into this film knowing not a lot, it is all muted greys and looks like a Brad Anderson film. The first 20 minutes are a nice set up of family discord and inferiority, then the thriller starts, and gradually gets more and more paranoid, like a less fluffy version of the long forgotten Hugh Grant/Gene Hackman movie ‘Extreme Measures’. Sam Worthington does nice work as a broken human being, it’s only just over 90mins which is perfect and feels just like a midweek trip to Blockbusters. A nice surprise on a rainy day.
Expect the unexpected.
Fractured is a mystery thriller, I’d agree with that, but the one tag that’s missing, is surreal. It’s a very odd film, so odd it’s almost bonkers, it’s like being in a nightmare, you can’t wake up, all events are out of your control, and every aspect of life is spiraling out of control. I won’t give a single spoiler away, because it would give the game away, all I could say is expect the unexpected. I predicted events and outcomes, I got every single sequence of events wrong, loaded with twists and crammed full of intrigue. Sam Worthington is terrific.
It’s trippy, it’s slow to start, but great as it gets going, think The Lady vanishes. 7/10
