Emma Pierson holds this one together
17 January 2007 | by luke-283See all my reviews

Emma Pierson is a virtual unknown here in the US, which is unfortunate. She, along with the rest of the cast did a credible job, and the story line was plausible, as far as made for TV dramas go.

But...Bloodlines had some of the worst directing and camera work i've ever seen. The jerk blurry camera work really was distracting; it ruined all the good efforts that went into making this film.

I am always on the look out for good Brit film work, we don't see nearly enough of it here in the US. Unfortunately this one was off the mark.

I look forward to seeing Emma Pierson in better films.
