Movie Reviews

Quirky thriller . . .
Ronald Scheer | Los Angeles | 11/18/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"About the time you think you know what you're watching - a thriller about a young woman who discovers a killer disposing of a body - this quirky story begins taking odd and unexpected turns. After a while, you begin to realize that it's not all "dead" serious. There is dark humor around the edges, and the two protagonists become partners in a cover-up that keeps threatening to come unraveled.

The man (Michael Kitchen) claims the death was accidental, though the body, it turns out, belongs to a man having an affair with his wife. The young woman (Sophie Okonedo), who has no reason to get involved, does anyway - and thereby hangs the tale. Paul Abbott, writer for the series "Cracker," keeps the complications piling up as revelation follows revelation, and each of the characters gets into and out of one predicament after another. Kitchen, parodying all the grimaces and facial contortions of his likeably reticent detective Foyle ("Foyle's War"), gets to muddle on under the influence of a few too many Valium. Cleverly plotted, this British TV drama, is entertainingly implausible in just the way it should be."
Very good
Marc Turnipseed | hell | 10/05/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This one I rented ,not knowing what to expect. But when I watched it, I really didn't want it to end. This was a very good movie. Very suspensful,and believable. Just when you think somebody is busted ,they squirm away in a very believable manner. It's not all fake and contrived like all these movies these days. Everybody seems so calm and collected in movies, but not this one. And the most shocking thing about this movie is that it was made for TV in the UK. A TV movie ,that in my opinion is better than 90% of crap put out here. Very well worth checking out."
