Samuel L. Jackson is to Hollywood what Wolverine is to Marvel Comics. No, I don’t mean that Jackson is an angry Canadian with garden shears stuck to his knuckles, but he is arguably the most prolific actor in Tinsel Town right now, popping up in every second title you see. And next this busy actor will be teaming up with his Captain America: The Winter Soldier co-star Dominic Cooper in Reasonable Doubt, in which he plays an angry man (Canadian nationality unconfirmed) who does have a thing for sharp objects normally found in the tool shed.

Up-and-coming District Attorney Mitch Brockden commits a fatal hit-and-run and feels compelled to throw the case against the accused criminal found with the body and blamed for the crime. Following the trial, Mitch’s worst fears come true when he realizes that he acquitted a guilty man, and he soon finds himself on the hunt for the killer before more victims pile up.

Oof, Sam. Right in the bad dialogue! Cringe inducing speechifying aside, this looks like the type of “not bad” thriller you’ll be perfectly happy waste ninety minutes of your life on, should you land on it after a bit of channel hopping on TV.

Reasonable Doubt was directed by Peter Howitt (Antitrust) and written by Peter A. Dowling (Flightplan), which should give it some extra street cred.
