Boring
23 April 2010 | by See all my reviews

I don't know why, but I kept watching the movie in spite of being bored.

The story was not compelling. Just a run of the mill detective story. A few murders, etc.

The main character was a bit dull. Not horrible, just a bit dull. Not very many good lines. He's not a bad actor. Just not a very compelling one.

The supporting characters were soap opera quality. It was a made for TV movie, so not surprising, I guess.

The plot moved slowly. It never really dragged me into it.

Like many detective stories, there were too many characters, in my opinion. Less characters with a bit more depth make for a better story.

If there had been anything else on I wanted to watch, I would have watched it :) There's worse movies. It was not horrible. Just...dull
