I think that the whole premise of Fracture (2007), that if you are rich you can do anything is flawed. Even for a rich person it would be very difficult to gain access to the hotel card without leaving any traces, make sure that Nunally will be on the operation and make sure that Beachum will be assigned by the DA office to the case. We, the audience, are supposed to just nod and say, yep, he was rich so he had means to set all this up, but I don't really believe in that.
My question, however, is about a different thing. About the bullets. I'm no weapon expert, so correct me if I'm wrong, but as I understand, when you fire a gun you get a shell (that is returned by the gun) and the bullet, that is the actual projectile that flies to its target. I think that you can match both, the shell and the bullet to the gun if you recover them.
Thus the dialogue about matching the bullet in the end of the movie was confusing to me. Beachum said that he could match the bullet from Jennifer's body to the bullet Nunally was killed with. Surely he did not need the bullet from Jennifer's body - he must already had had the other three bullets that was fired at Crawford's house. And if Ted could switch the shells, it's not likely he had the time to also retrieve the bullets.
Now about the switching. How on earth did he switch the shells? He surely was searched and his whole house was searched. Beachum wonders the whole movie how the gun has disappeared, but the same question is applicable to shells if they were switched. And if they were not, then the talk about matching the bullet in Jennifer's body is a total nonsense - you could simply match the shells that you'd had all along.
Can some one explain this part to me please?
