OK, so it's late-ish on a Sunday night and I should be in bed in order to gather some sleep for uni tomorrow, but, I flick over to channel 7 and find myself watching the beginning of an intriguing British crime show. I had never heard/seen anything on or about it before, and thinking it was a short (perhaps one hour) series I had just stumbled across, I continued to watch. I must first of all say that the length of this movie (probably about 3 hours) did not in any way destroy, drag out or hinder the effect of the movie. It was thoroughly pleasing. It kept me deeply interested. It felt as if i were watching a condensed version of the series "24". This was due to the fact that the director and script writers tried to throw you around a bit; showed you certain pieces of information in order for you to make your own deduction concerning what ACTUALLY happened. This was very engaging. There was not one dull moment throughout the entire movie. It was beautifully shot, superbly acted, and brilliant executed. I realized now, that my comments which began as a synopsis (see summary line) have digressed into my praise to the entire crew involved; leaving nothing explained. Oh well. You'll have to watch it and see for yourself!
