Bellow average TV Movie
12 July 2001 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

A Mother's Testimony is a bellow average TV movie. Not only is the quality of the story and script poor, but the visuals and production values are also lacking any kind of finesse. Kate Jackson (who's voice has become so croaky and shaky, she resembles Katherine Hepburn), portrays the mother of son who has just been released from jail. The young man Kenny, played by Dr Quinn Medicine Woman's Chad Allen, is welcomed back into the family with open arms and given every opportunity for a second chance. Needless to say, he blows it. Right from the opening title, you know what is about to happen. There is not one single surprise in the whole, rather dull, piece. As it draws to it's painfully obvious and lumbering conclusion, you realise you could not give a toss about a single thing that has happened in the last 93 minutes. The director Julian Chojnacki (who's first full length feature this is), lingers long on shots of hands wringing, as if to generate some kind of emotion or tension. Unfortunately for us, this technique fails miserably. Unless you are a particular fan of Ms Jackson's, who is not at her best here, I would avoid this bland installment into the TV movie catalogue, at all costs. It is simply just not worth your time.
