Doesn't entirely reach the top
14 March 2009 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Don't get me wrong... I by no means hated this. It's fairly well-done. The plot is good and interesting, and it had my attention from start to finish. Granted, it isn't always completely credible, however, it tends to be. It is a tad predictable in one or two places. The production value is quite admirable. The cinematography is nice, save for the occasional odd angle(including the dreaded shin-shot). The cutting has moments that stick out like sore thumbs(somebody, take the hammers away from the people in the editing room), beyond that, it's at least adequate. The pacing is fitting, this never lost me. The acting varies, but almost all of it is great, the names and unknowns alike. Plummer, as my fiancée points out, got better as it went along at hiding his accent. The character development is relatively strong, though not all the progression is believable. The political opinion behind this is obvious. The reasoning is a bit simplified, which hurts their case. The language is mild in amount, and moderate in tone, with a couple of harsher words. Now... was the Brit with the colorful descriptions meant to put that country in a positive or negative light? I recommend this to any fan of drama-thriller, the actors and/or anyone else involved in putting this mini-series together and onto the small screen. 7/10
