User Reviews

 
Kristin Kreuk is amazing!
12 August 2018 | by BrycemesserSee all my reviews

Ms. Kreuk could read the phone book and still find a way to give it depth and power. Thankfully Burden of Truth gives her more compelling material, though sometimes only slightly.

The major downside of this series is that the story has been done many times before, big-city lawyer goes back to her small town and ends up getting wrapped into a mystery and staying. It's the plot of two dozen Hallmark movies and each time pretty much feels the same. The saving grace of the series is that the writing can pretty good, even if it's a play on old themes, and is performed to perfection by the cast. Ms. Kreuk consistently delivers incomparable performances in anything she's in, and Burden of Truth is no different. The show is easily worth watching for her alone.
