Maybe A Bit Too Dark
20 January 2003 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

I didn`t see the original MESSIAH and couldn`t help feeling that perhaps that I should have after seeing the first half hour of the sequel , but not to worry even though it`s perhaps not as stand alone as the QUATERMASS serials or the James Bond franchise you don`t need to have seen the original to follow MESSIAH 2 : VENGANCE IS MINE

That said however no one can accuse VENGANCE IS MINE of being a groundbreaking crime thriller . It`s all filmed in the same extremely dark way as HANNIBAL , SEVEN , TOUCHING EVIL etc . In fact it`s so dark it`s sometimes difficult to see what`s going on . And it tries to shock the viewers with cruel deaths that these " shocking " deaths end up being laughable due to their OTT manner , instead of feeling sorry for the victims you can`t help giving an involuntary laugh as they meet their demise , especially the chap who gets bumped off beside the railway line . In fact so many people get abducted and murdered in relatively public places without the murderer being seen or interupted that I couldn`t help feeling there might be a supernatural angle to all this . This doesn`t happen and strangely enough when the killer is revealed the story doesn`t fall apart as much as I expected . Okay it`s unlikely for the reasons I`ve outlined but it does make logical sense .

One special word of note - for the first time ever we have an American actress playing a British character without a hint of an American accent , you`d have no idea at all that Michelle Forbes is an American actress . There is a very good reason for this . Watch VENGANCE IS MINE to see what I mean
