Storyline

While restoring an old painting showing a woman and two men playing chess, Julia discovers the text "Who killed the knight" underneath the paint. The owner of the painting tells her that one of his forefathers was killed, the painting might identify the murderer. When Julia's friend is killed she understands that there is more to it. She consults Domenec, a chess genius who reconstructs the game from the painting. With any piece he takes, somebody dies. Written by Radboud Bruinsma <Radboud_Bruinsma@hg.maus.de>

Sunday Night Mystery Theater
26 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a mildly entertaining film as long as you are not expecting very much. Uncovered is pretty much on par with the old Sunday Night Mysteries like McMillan & Wife and McCloud. There is some nudity in the film but it is really nothing to get too excited about one way or the other. The characters are pleasant enough to watch but none are truly compelling. The story is mildly interesting but there is nothing captivating or compelling about the storyline. The analogy to the chess game is mildly amusing but it seems somewhat of a reach for a feature length film. The main reason to see Uncovered is the opportunity to see Kate Beckinsale at an early stage of her career.
