Storyline

When the daughter of a powerful senator is kidnapped by a psychopath, the senator requests a particular homicide detective, Caitlyn Conner, to head up the case. She knows the kidnapper better than anyone else - he just killed her husband. Against the advice of her closest friend, a police psychologist, Caitlyn enters the killer's web of sadistic games and discovers the crime is far more twisted than anyone imagined.

Natalie Zea in form-fitting attire
26 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Natalie Zea's movie career appears to be taking off, this being one of several that would seem to explain her absence from most of season 3 of TV's "Justified," a series in which she gets above-the-title billing. Still, it's not a tough choice between playing the ex-wife on a TV series vs. the chance to star in your own movie, even if it's a made-for-TV one.

BURDEN OF EVIL is a mostly run-of-the-mill thriller. What distinguishes it from others is its star, Natalie Zea, who's always a ten (okay, maybe a nine) in my book, along with a few (okay, maybe a couple) surprise twists in the plot. (The identity of the perp is not one of them.)

Zea plays Caitlyn Conner, the distaff half of a married couple, both detectives. Caitlyn has clearly had martial arts training, apparent by the way she handles two overly-aggressive drunks, in separate scenes.

The basic plot is outlined in the Storyline section on the front page of this title. The main deficiency, in my opinion, is the inter-agency tension between the FBI and local police, a device used in way too many cop stories.

Without giving anything away, I'll say that, despite some unsatisfactory directions taken along the way, thanks to the aforementioned plot twists, the tale comes to a satisfying conclusion.
