I need to read the book....
7 June 2006 | by (Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

...to validate whether my hunch is correct. I think there is a really interesting and intriguing mystery thriller story here. It's a shame that an American TV director and American TV actors were used for the production of this movie. There is an obvious TV cliché feel to many of the scenes and overall plot navigation of this movie. The director seems to pull his feeling of the scene in comparison to movie chemistry that has worked well in other films. For example, the relationship between the two partners while John Traveller is in jail. It attempts a similar feel to the chemistry between Agent Starling and Hannibal Lector...but undoubtedly less intriguing performance.

Another aspect of the movie to reinforce the TV feel of it, is the lack of continuity to the filming styles throughout the movie. There are not drastic differences but enough subtle nuances to the lighting and scene cut styles, it leaves the viewer in limbo to the overall feeling of the movie.

I look forward to when this film is redone by a different director and cast.
