Critic Reviews of "Beyond a Reasonable Doubt (2009)"New York Daily NewsSeptember 14, 2009
A good rule to follow for wannabe gritty thrillers: Lead actors shouldn't remind you of late-night informercial pitchmen.NPRSeptember 14, 2009
There's little in this pointless rehash to distract audiences from the pleasure of watching Tamblyn, a fine young actress whose direct, grownup stare belies her baby features.New York PostSeptember 11, 2009
What you won't be able to figure out is why this laughable yarn didn't go straight to DVD.Los Angeles TimesSeptember 11, 2009
The leads can't lend either spunk or gravitas to what was already a preposterous yarn 50 years ago.Reel Film ReviewsMay 18, 2011
...an entertainingly absurd thriller that boasts several genuinely exciting interludes and an expectedly riveting performance from Michael Douglas.Combustible CelluloidJanuary 07, 2010
Hyams takes a perfectly good story and kills it with logic loopholes, inconsistent character behavior, horrendous, headache-inducing cutting, and a number of brainless chase scenes.Filmcritic.comDecember 23, 2009
grows more preposterous as it unfoldsNewsBlazeDecember 20, 2009
Conscientiously creepy, but with a finale just too rushed to correlate with what preceded before. Though Metcalfe isn't bad, in commanding viewer attention as well as he does his tool in Desperate's random bulked for booty, housewife gardens.DVDTalk.comDecember 14, 2009
While the original is perhaps not a faultless classic, it certainly offers more excitement and competence than the star of John Tucker Must Die and the director of A Sound of Thunder can offer.Brand XOctober 08, 2009
The result is at times genuinely suspenseful ... and if the final twist doesn't drive you crazy, the cleverness may win you over.
