    Hi Ali! If you're referring to the one starring Anthony Hopkins, The original title is Fracture and honestly, I've seen better. I liked the acting but the plot was not interesting enough for me. :-)

    I enjoyed it very much. Some claimed it was too predicatble and that there was nothing new in the script. They can bite me. I liked it.

    In the first few minutes I was able to see the parking structure where I sometimes parked, a courthouse where I used to have lunch once in a while, and even the building where I spent some of the best years of my life. I think of them as my "hair years", because I still had some then.

    I've seen the courtroom in other films. It is certainly not a courtroom in the courthouse you see in the parking structure scene, nor is it in the Criminal Courts Building (CCB) where O J Simpson got away with murder. Quite possibly it's a room in the City Hall. The "hallway scenes" are certainly from the City Hall, not from a courthouse. While taking a photography class, I took lots of photos there. Great shadows.

    The parking lot where I normally parked was the entrance to the Los Angeles County Jail in the Eastwood film "Breakheart Ridge". I thought that was a dumb scene. The "Old Hall of Justice Jail" (OHJJ) is closed now. It occupied the top three floors of the Old Hall of Justice and once housed Bugs Moran, members of the Symbionese Liberation Army, and many others. About 1980 as I was getting off the elevator at OHJJ, I was surprised to find a sign painted on the wall announcing I was in the San Francisco City Jail! Surely they were making a movie there, but I never saw it.

    It's not a movie, but some day it may be: The Innocent Man by John Grisham. It's a true story about a miscarriage of justice in Oklahoma about twenty years ago. Very interesting. In a trial, it's certainly better to have a good lawyer than to be innocent.
