Excellent detective show & well worth a viewing
15 January 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Been watching the Tom Selleck/Jesse Stone detective shows and I recently ran across some reviews of Jack Irish. So I picked up the 2 flicks and watched the 1st movie a couple of days ago.

The acting was solid. The dialogue was engaging. The story was intriguing. The cast of characters had quirkiness, depth & believability and it was action packed and includes a topless female reporter!!

The accents & colloquialisms & fast moving plot had me pausing a few times to reflect on what was going on. I should pick up on the Ozzie talk after I watch a few more.

I liked the 1st Jesse Stone movie a fraction better than the 1st Jack Irish movie, BUT the 1st Jack Irish movie is better than some of the Jesse Stone sequels.

Jack Irish is definitely worth watching!!!
