Movie Reviews

Fantastic Miniseries!!
Arsinoe Intrigid | Brooklyn,New York,USA | 09/27/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I remember watching Prime Suspect 5: Errors Of Judgement when it was shown on PBS. Nothing was on television at the time and I was scanning different channels. I started watching the miniseries in the midst of the first episode. After the first ten minutes I was hooked! I even watched it again when PBS decided to repeat it!!Helen Mirren is amazing as Detective Jane Tennison!In this outing Tennison is demoted and starts working in Manchester. As soon as Tennison gets back on duty she recieves an assignment: a murder. I don't want to go into too many details. There are a few twists and turns and suspense moments. You will even keep guessing at the end.We even still get to see more of Jane's personal life.The standout performance in this set goes to Steven Mackintosh hands down!! Everytime he's on screen your eyes will stay on him. He's so despicable, cocky, and clever but likable at the same time."
Simply breathtaking

"As in every film she appears in, Helen Mirren takes my breath away in Prime Suspect 5. It's impossible to take your eyes off her when she's on screen, and I can watch her movies endlessly and always find new depth in her characterizations. This entry in the series is just as good as 1,2,3,6 and 7 (4 was still good, but broken up into shorter stories, so for me not as impactful). Mirren is divine, and as much as I love all her performances, her embodiment of the complex, lonely and deeply ethical Tennison will always be my favorite."
Thrilling, inspiring and suspenseful!

"Superior police detective drama--it doesn't get better than this!! I watched every episode of this series as it came out and recently rented the whole series and watched it from beginning to end. It is enthralling and mesmerizing--I never get tired of it.

I particularly like that Prime Suspect 5 is set in Manchester--great accents! Too bad they don't do subtitles--it takes a little time to get used to."
A work of cinematic art

"I originally watched the series 5 episodes while in London on the BBC. I was enthralled by the depth of the characters and the real life portrayal of the events. Helen Mirren is in a class by herself. "The Street" is one of the best "bad guys" ever created, cocky, bold and brutal. This series may be too realistic for some, it can be a little disturbing at times. Best cop series I have ever seen."
