Good vehicle for Angela Lansbury
31 July 2004 | by (South Bend, Indiana) – See all my reviews

I enjoy Angela Lansbury, and I think she did an excellent job. The other actors, although mostly unknown to me, also were fine.

The movie is thoughtfully done. I found myself getting caught up in the characters' frustrations, so it was consequently somewhat frustrating to watch. Despite the title, this is definitely not an "action" movie. Low-key in tone, it plays more like a mystery.

I am still a fan of "Murder, She Wrote", and watched the movie to see Angela Lansbury. I'm not sure if I would watch it again, because the tone and mood convey sadness. Definitely some "get your Kleenex out" moments, but it was good to see some range in her acting.
