Slower than Christmas!
4 October 2004 | by (Charlotte, NC, USA) – See all my reviews

I was a fan of Urich (he was outstanding in Lonesome Dove) but the newer A&E group of Spencer flicks was much better.

Savage Place is talky to the extreme. Urich looks pretty good, considering he was ill with the early stages of his cancer, but Avery Brooks seemed to be sleepwalking. Marcia Gay Harden was a much better (and better looking) Susan.

The screenplay left several large holes in the plot, to boot! (How DID Spenser find Candy and Jessica, anyway? They were long gone before he started after Candy's SUV, and they were shown making several turns to get to the wooded area where he confronted them. And then Hawk does it too!)

I hadn't been aware of this one prior to catching it on the Hallmark Channel -- and was unimpressed.
