Even better than Night Passage and Stone Cold
22 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the third Jesse Stone I've watched, following a blog suggestion's ordering. My review needn't be as long. Suffice to say that the character traits that surfaced in the first two are brought out again clearly in this movie. Jesse feels his responsibility is large under his watch, and that's going to be a big burden. In a way, that explains his willingness to threaten to kill a wife-beater. And, as began to come out in the first two (chronologically the first two), there is something of a spotlight being shone on American family lives, both middle and upper-middle classes.

This film has some very touching moments, particularly involving Jesse's two main supporting officers, Suit and Molly. It's a bit like Gunsmoke in Paradise, with Chester and Kitty and Doc.

This story not only develops the latter but also presents an excellent police procedural. Experienced movie-goers will figure out what's going on and what's ahead, but it won't really spoil the fun of being with Jesse as he looks for clues and uses his "coply intuition".

I've raised my rating to 8 for this one.

One other thing. William Devane comes in again for a scene as Jesse's psychiatrist and he makes a critical contribution to Jesse's thinking. But Devane has become such a good actor and so powerful on the screen that he could take the simplest lines and make them interesting. The last full movie I watched with him was Rolling Thunder, a revenge story from 1977. Catch that one if you can. He was good even then, but he goes back to Hitchcock's Family Plot (1976) and before. Devane definitely contributes to the Jesse Stone films.

UPDATE: This review was deleted by IMDb because of a complaint of "abuse". However, I was not informed what that abuse was supposed to have been. I also am unable to communicate with IMDb in order to rebut such a claim. For the life of me, I can't see anything abusive in this review.

I will not stand for arbitrary censorship. This may be my last review for IMDb unless I get some sort of rational information about what is going on here. I do these reviews partly as a public service, but if censorship of such an arbitrary type is going to be imposed, I won't participate any longer.
