Ignore The Gimmick And It`s Still Not Very Good
29 August 2004 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

There is a belief amongst the Romany people that the human eyeball contains the image of the very last thing a dead person saw . There is no scientific rationale for this and the producers of MURDER IN MIND have taken this unscientific idea one step further and suggest that the brain of a dead person contains their final thoughts as they died , ideas that can be transplanted into another person`s head . It struck me that whoever came up with this premise were short on their own ideas

This premise does the TVM no favours . It`s a bad premise and it`s a bad TVM with sci-fi fans put off by the run of the mill script and the intended female audience put off by the idea that it`s a sci-fi thriller . Being someone who hates TVMs I was hoping that it might redeem itself via some clever ideas but I got rapidly bored as it becomes obvious that the real story revolves around a newbie female cop called Callain Pearson getting patronized by some tough old sweat detectives led by Cargill which we`ve seen far too often in these type of movies . The harder this TVM tries to satisfy both a Sci-Fi and female TVM audience the more it fails to satisfy either camp
