Storyline

In 1981, former RCMP Undercover Agent "Patrick Kelly" was accused of causing the mysterious death of his wife. Managing to elude the authorities, Kelly married his second wife, and continued to live the extravagant lifestyle he so desperately desired. However, in 1984, based on the testimony of a key witness, Kelly was finally convicted of the first-degree murder of his wife, (allegedly by throwing her off the balcony of their luxury high-rise condo). But then a whole ten years later, the witness claimed she lied on the stand. Written by Shayne <shayne@chalktv.com>

Detective Inspector: Why wasn't your wife wearing underwear?
Patrick Kelly: What the hell is this? A technique like Columbo?
Detective Inspector: It's just a question. Your wife had less than an hour to make her flight at the airport. Why wasn't your wife wearing underwear?
Patrick Kelly: My wife never wore underwear. That's why I married her.

two thumbs up
5 December 1999 | by mflibraSee all my reviews

I didn't find Murder Most Likely deathly scary. But the scene with Kelly's wife (Marie-Josee Croze, wonderful actress I've never seen before) falling from the balcony did scare me and are all memorable. The bad Mountie played by Paul Gross is also memorable. The ways in which Marie-Jose Croze eyes change when she first met Kelly is incredible.

Chapple claimed "Murder most likely" is a chilling drama. He was exaggerating, but some of it is--the first half is suspenseful and mysterious, especially the relation between Kelly and his first wife.

The last part explain Patrick Kelly to us, but to bring us into scepticism.

Finally the cast in this TV movie is very good. I know zero about film criticism, but I can see the beauty and symmetry of every camera shot. The sets are clean and free of distractions. This TV movie is two thumbs up. Hope we can enjoy the Croze-Gross duo very soon.
