Complicated and confusing
14 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Hidden" is a four-part British thriller starring Philip Glenister and Thekla Reuten.

The story is wild, one of those government corruption tales. Government corruption is feasible, and in real life there were riots in Britain and resignations of officials. But there were other elements of this plot that put it on the fanciful side.

Glenister is Harry Ven, a solicitor, is asked by attorney Gina Hawkes (Reuten) to find a alibi witness for her client. This witness also has information about Ven's late brother Mark 20 years earlier.

The plot takes off from there into a political conspiracy. This includes a plan to take over the government by a billionaire. He has an assassination bureau that gets rid of anyone in their way.

David Suchet plays Sir Nigel Fountain, a relative of Hawkes', and he's amazing. At first I didn't recognize him.

The end is a downer because it really doesn't end. There's ambiguous and there's nothing - this was nothing.

The acting was good, with Philip Glenister attractive in a disheveled kind of way and totally believable.

Okay.
