Storyline

This TV drama tells the true story of a bungled and obstructed police manhunt for a serial killer who could and should have been imprisoned after his first crime. Two young RCMP officers, each seperately investigating a rape and murder, cuptured the culprit, but because of legal red tape, jurisdictional chaos and incompetence, the suspect was allowed to continue his rampage until he was finally arrested and imprisoned - several murders later.

Very Intrusive Direction
4 August 2003 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

This Canadian TVM is based on a real life case where the mounties couldn`t get their man due to foul ups and red tape and this led to a child rapist and murderer to carry on with his obscene crimes . This is a TVM with a lot of potential but the script and performances aren`t as well developed as they should have been . Despite these flaws the one major problem that did jump out of the screen and grab me by the throat was the direction by Anne Wheeler which is totally inconsistent . Sometimes you feel you`re watching a fly on the wall documentary , sometimes you feel you`re watching a stage play , but worst of all sometimes you feel you`re watching a MTV trailer.

Like I said this had potential but everyone in general and the director in particular had to go and ruin it
