When Jesse and Suitcase were at the quarry, sighting in Luther's AR, Jesse tells him to adjust his sight to the left. Luther makes the adjustment to the wrong dial. He adjusts the vertical (up and down) not the horizontal (left and right). Plus, the holes left in the target are much too large and cleanly cut for a rifle round. See more »
Death In Paradise (2006) is familiar and easy to watch but definitely not as entertaining as the previous two movies. The usual cast are all good and our overqualified police chief Jesse does what he does so well. The climactic confrontation at the end starts off well but soon gets predictable and rather silly. Shame really.
👍 William Devane's first appearance as psychiatrist Dr. Dix.
👍 John Diehl & Debra Christofferson are brilliant as the wife beater and punch bag couple.
👎 Orla Brady as Dr. Lilly Summers, wasn't a fan of the performance.
👎 I found the domestic abuse subplot FAR more interesting than the murder.
👎 The ending is very convenient and typical for a TV movie.
