Movie Reviews

Good crime flick
Jimmy | Byron Bay,Australia | 04/06/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Good comeback role for Sheen.About a messed up kid who has an inkling towards dead women,and the Scottish investigators and washed out American detective/writer who tracks him down.Plays like a fast-paced episode of "The Bill" and lots of morbid connotation.Overall while lacking the original touch present in crime movies these days,it still has a slight edge over it American counter parts."
A great story with an excellent Charles Sheen
Gabriele Schwanke | 08/18/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The story could have been written by Stephen King: Psychologically down because of the emotional stress of his job ex-investigator and bestseller author James MacGregor (Charles Sheen) moves from America to the Scottish Highlands. But instead getting some peace to sort out his life he becomes the target of an serial killer who sends him faxes to announce upcoming murders. A dead girl found in his garden makes him the local police's No.1 suspect. This means back to work for MacGregor to find the true killer. Charles Sheen's performance is absolutely brilliant, another proof of his wide spread talents as an actor. Seems he easily plays every role, no matter if it's comedy or serious material."

"POSTMORTEM is one of those psychological thrillers that bends the plot lines and incorporates confusing motivations in order to forward its plot. While it doesn't quite come up to par, it is a tidy little thriller with an interesting performance from Stephen McCole, who plays the necromancer and obvious fan of writer Charlie Sheen's book on serial killers. Sheen himself is a suspect at first as the killer is sending him advance fax notices of the deaths, and a body is found in Sheen's garden. Charlie plays a down and out, alcoholic former cop who left the States to wind up in Scotland, where the movie takes place. Sheen sobers up to help the local law officials track down this criminal. Sheen does an okay job as Jimmy McGregor, although he seems disoriented at times when he shouldn't. The role of McCole's sister in the plot is never fully explained, nor is the father's, but that's part of the psychological ambiguity parlayed in this film. It does have a touching rendition of "Amazing Grace" at the end, but we still don't know what kind of future Sheen will have. Not totally satisfying, but not a bad movie either. Just average."
