Movie Reviews

"Intelligence" is not written for the average 12 year old mi
CrankyOldWoman | Seattle | 04/21/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I could not disagree more with Sam Graham's analysis of this program (see Amazon's review). First, he unfortunately compares what he considers failings of this show with U.S. programming. Who ever said programming in the States is something writers should try to emulate!
"Intelligence" does have a large cast, and you will recognize many of them from the DaVinci series if you have been fortunate enough to see those. (Acorn - please put that entire series out on DVD!)

I like this show for exactly the reasons that Sam Graham finds fault with it. There is not gross visualization of violence and gore - because it is written with more development of character than the standard shoot 'em up you will find in U.S. programming. (How many times can we watch CSI and all those carved up bodies!)
Ian Tracey is great as the low key bad guy you can't help but like and they give the strongest role opposite Tracey's to a woman. Klea Scott as Mary is compelling because she holds her own with the big boys, never using her sexuality to get what she wants. She uses her brain and intuition to get the "Intelligence" she sees as the way to fight crime in her city.

It is apparent Mr. Graham is not a Canadian and seems to think crime is
neat and tidy in Canada....too whitewashed to be interesting. Has he not heard of the pig farmer lately?
I live in Seattle and drugs crossing our borders from Canada are a constant worry here. Amazon is based about a mile from my house, but Graham's lack of understanding of the drug problems in the Northwest make me wonder where he lives!
Readers, pay no mind to Amazon's review of this series. Take a chance on "Intelligence". I think you will be as fascinated as I have been. Chris Haddock continues to produce writing for our times - realistic writing with well developed characters and doesn't depend on shock value to hold an audience. He gives you tension, suspense and intrigue without the blood and guts which so often attract the average 12 year old mind."
Best Show I've seen in a long time

"WWWWOOOOWWWW!!!! Instantly hooked in INTELLIGENCE!!! This is a great crime drama - violence like any crime show but not gruesome-perfectly creepy.Deep characters who by the end of disc 2 it's hard to decide who you like and who you don't. Almost everyone has something to love about them and most have something that makes you cringe a little. You never know what's going to happen and can't wait for the next episode. I started it 2 days ago and I'm on the third disc already - when I watch an episode I'm suddenly 3 episodes into it and force myself to shut it off and go to bed already. Great actors, great plot, great characters, great show, lots of layers. PLEASE TELL ME THERE"S MORE SEASONS THAN THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE."

"Chris Haddock of Davinci's Inquest has done it again with his signature
high quality production of compelling characters in a series with a rivetting story. Nobody who loves Davinci's Inquest will be dissappointed."
Being Canuck does not make you a lame duck ...

"Like most Canadians, I've grown up thinking that any Canadian tv shows - must be bad by definition. Of course, we always give the exception rule over to SCTV and Kids in the Hall - which are almost excused because they were almost counter-culture type shows. I didn't even know "Intelligence" was even on air until I heard American podcaster and radio announcer/personality John Siuntres mention it in passing on his Wordballoon podcast on comic books. John's comments made it seem interesting - so I gave it a chance and ordered it sight unseen.

Wow!!! What an amazing show. My prejudging of Canuck shows was sorely wrong this time. What we have here is a HBO quality show along the lines of "The Wire", a fictional drama about what the intelligence community in Canada trying to do to investigate crimes in their domain. The line between who is good and who is bad, tends to be more blurred than black and white. The politics of the situation seems at time more evil than the criminal elements themselves. Writing is excellent, as is the acting. Special kudo's to Matt Frewer for playing maybe the biggest scumbag ever on tv.
