Stumbles towards the finish line ......
3 November 2013 | by merklekranzSee all my reviews

"Letter To My Killer" starts out strong with a cash starved, sympathetic, couple trying blackmail to solve their financial woes. Finding a thirty year old letter that implicates three high level executives in a murder and cover-up, Nick Chinlund and Mare Winningham put the bite on Rip Torn and his cohorts. What follows is a prolonged cat and mouse game between the puny and the powerful. Along the way, Torn deploys various methods to rid himself of his meek adversaries. Unfortunately, believability begins to wane as the story progresses, especially as relates to a couple of Wisconsin deer hunters who happen to pop up at convenient times to save the day. - MERK
