Not very promising, but possibly worth a second look, 15 March 2012
Author: Sarasilien from United States

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

The most memorable thing about the premiere episode of "Missing" is Ashley Judd's terribly forced acting as former CIA agent Becca Winstone. She coos over her son Michael, cries over her lost husband Paul, gasps to see Michael abducted, rages at the CIA agent who stands in her way -- all without seeming even the teeniest bit authentic or honest.

This is not entirely her fault: the dialog is clunky and clichéd, the plot is clunky and clichéd, and the other actors, working off of a crappy script, play clunky and clichéd characters.

Fans of the very-similarly-themed Liam Neeson movie "Taken" will be disappointed; Judd exudes little of Neeson's barely-contained violence, his stone-cold competence, his I-will-damn-my-soul-if-I-have-to ruthlessness, or his quick and clear-eyed improvisational skills. She isn't a CIA agent who happens to be a forty-something mom, she's a forty-something mom playing at being a CIA agent.

A number of reviewers have compared the visual style of "Missing" to the Bourne movies. Nonsense. The action sequences in "Missing" have no more dynamism or artistry than those in the typical TV cop show.

Tip: In case you haven't watched it, USA's "Covert Affairs" is no more realistic than this show, but the acting and dialog are better and it's a lot more fun.
