Not a bad mini-series, could have been better, but it was alright
3 November 2009 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Midnight Man wasn't bad I thought, but it wasn't great either. The mini-series was benefited by some nice dark-looking camera work and some good sinister-sounding music. The acting, considering what the actors had to work with, was not too bad, and the direction was decent. James Nesbitt as always gives a solid performance, and while I am more familiar with his comedy roles Reece Dinsdale is adequately menacing as the villain Blake. However, the characters are rather cliché. The idea of a broken relationship and the protagonist suffering from a phobia of day-light is something that has been done similarly before and better I think. The script was weak in places, and the plot was a tad complicated and convoluted at times. Plus there were areas where characters and subplots, such as the killing of the protagonist's wife where it could have been developed more. Overall, asides from the clichés and the underdeveloped story, Midnight Man is a in general well made and decently acted and directed mini-series. It is worth a watch, but I don't necessarily recommend it. 6/10 Bethany Cox
