Just awful
29 September 2004 | by See all my reviews

This film had no chance.... why because the script writers had no idea about police procedure at all I did'nt expect any kind of great film i mean you don't with a formula TV film but when the current wife is charged with murder you would at least think the police would perform the most simple of tests to see if she had done it..... there is a residue of particles left on clothing after a gun is fired that even with washing is very hard to get rid of it the wife had fired the gun found at the crime scene she would have been covered in these particles,however the scriptwriters for this piece of dogs droppings obviously had'nt watched any of the great TV detective shows out there that do know about this... I've no problem hokey lines, bad acting or obvious plot devices but when simple logic and a small knowledge of how the police work in a murder/shooting incident is lacking it just bloody annoys me
