Bizarre and unpredictable ...........
17 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is not the type of movie that is easily explained, mainly because it is so bizarre and unpredictable. Character development is good, and the characters are interesting and colorful. "Sweet Killing" opens like an episode of "Columbo", but soon spirals way beyond a foolproof murder plan. It's nice to see Michael Ironside playing a cop for a change, and Anthony Higgins, F. Murray Abraham, and Leslie Hope all are quite good. There is at least a bunch of uncomfortable male groveling by Higgins, and an extra measure of bitchiness by Hope. Other than an abrupt and somewhat unsatisfying ending, "Sweet Killing" is totally acceptable entertainment. - MERK
