sincere interconnected advocacy
4 October 2017 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

This is a CBC mini-series set in Toronto with an interconnected expansive story about guns. Gun fire erupts in a crowd and a little girl is killed. Reggie is a weed dealer arrested running from the scene with a gun. Rick Merriweather and Ford Saunders' investigation leads to legitimate gun dealer Paul Duguid (Colm Feore) who is fighting the handgun registry legislation. Paul's son Bobby does illegal jobs for him. He hires Derek Wilmot and recently released Conrad to steal from gun collector Sinclair Patterson. Francis Dett (Elisha Cuthbert) is Bobby's girlfriend. Reporter Eva Innis takes in Derek as a new intern at her newspaper.

This is ambitious in the scope of story telling for Canadian TV. It's too overtly political which actually dilutes its impact. The spider web writing style is too scattered. It's too vast, too long, and too slow at times. There are a few great characters with interesting stories. On the other hand, Gregory Smith as Bobby is too scrawny. He could work as a child overcompensating to impress his father but he is played more as gangster which is laughable. Despite its many problems, it's still watchable and it's definitely sincere. It is competently made with skilled actors.
