Tom Selleck returns to the role of Jesse Stone, the troubled but uncompromising police chief of Paradise, Massachusetts in Jesse Stone: Thin Ice. The fifth made-for-television movie in the Stone series, and the first not directly adapted from a specific novel by Robert B. Parker, the engrossing Thin Ice is an apt title for a story that finds a pair of investigations and Stone's relationship with Paradise's town council looking perilous. Wounded during a murderous attempt on Captain Healy (Stephen McHattie) of the Massachusetts State Police, Stone sets out to find the would-be killer against the wishes of Internal Affairs, the Paradise council, and Healy himself. Meanwhile, a woman (Camryn Manheim) whose newborn baby was stolen from her and presumed dead years ago appeals for help from a skeptical Stone. The chief's usual problems with alcohol and the breakup of his marriage continue to haunt him, too. But none of that lessens Stone's determination to follow his own moral code as he takes on his superiors' shady ethics, a would-be killer, and a possible kidnapper.

Selleck, the show's co-writer and executive producer, is much older than Parker's original character. But he certainly captures the soul and rhythms of the quintessential Parker hero, and brings a fitting, gruff decency to the role. Kathy Baker is very good as one of the two officers under Stone's command (Kohl Sudduth is quirky, good fun as the other cop). William Devane is a grizzled cipher as Stone's chain-smoking shrink, and Leslie Hope provides a film noir edge as Stone's cynical lover, a cop with the rather improbable name of Sidney Greenstreet. --Tom Keogh

4.0 out of 5 stars Cheers for Jesse Stone! March 1, 2009
Jesse and his State Homicide buddy Healey are shot at in Boston. Both are injured, Healey seriously. Jesse comes home to learn his ex-wife is moving in with her boyfriend; his employer, the Paradise Town Council is not pleased with his performance as police chief specifically with his failure to man the speed trap just outside of town, and a woman from New Mexico thinks her long-ago kidnapped son is alive and well in Paradise. Add an Internal Affairs investigation conducted by an angst-ridden and glamorous officer to the mix (Jesse managed to fire a couple of shots at the gunman) and this is a satisfying addition to the series.

Thin Ice describes more than the story. This is the first of the Jesse Stone movies not based on a Robert Parker novel, there are differences in characters (I particularly missed Molly) and there's an edgier feel to it. While there is still the wonderful repartee among the members of Paradise's tiny PD that is so characteristic of these stories, everyone seems uneasy and Jesse seems more self-destructive than in the past. Nevertheless, the intrepid Jesse manages to sidestep Internal Affairs to resolve the shooting, ferrets out the truth about the kidnapping, and as the movie ends, is on his way to Do The Right Thing. His future in Paradise is in question as well as his personal relationships, and I'm glad I read that there is another episode yet unreleased, so maybe the big issues will be resolved.

3.0 out of 5 stars Darker, More Somber, but Selleck Shines as Stone... June 19, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Tom Selleck's fifth installment as Robert Parker's alcoholic Police Chief, in "Jesse Stone: Thin Ice", lacks the ironic edginess and humor of the previous films (based, for the first time, on original material, not a Parker novel), and the presence of Viola Davis as the heart of the tiny Paradise Police Department is sorely missed, but Selleck is terrific, and the film will certainly please his fans!

As always, Stone is in hot water with the Paradise City Council; town revenue is down (as he had fired his department's biggest ticket-writer), and he refuses to hire a Council member's son-in-law to fill the vacancy; and while in Boston in a borrowed Paradise police car, Stone and his buddy, Captain Healy (Stephen McHattie), are shot, with Stone under an Internal Affairs investigation for firing back. More is on his plate, as well; a mother (Camryn Manheim) arrives in town, begging for his aid in finding her long-missing child, and his ex-wife informs him she plans to move in with her new boyfriend. Needless to say, Stone is finding solace in the bottle, and verbally sparring with his shrink (William Devane)...but he doggedly searches for answers, despite the threats and suspicion.

The series 'regulars' (Kathy Baker and Kohl Sudduth, as Stone's fellow Paradise cops, and William Sadler, as a Boston mobster) are wonderful, as is Leslie Hope, portraying an IA investigator attracted to him...and Joe the Dog (as his mutt, Reggie), shines, as always (the canine is a hell of an actor!). While the film has shortcomings, the performances are first-rate, and Selleck is so natural as Stone, you may forget he was once Thomas Magnum...while the ending may be the darkest of the series, I'm certainly looking forward to the next Stone movie!

4.0 out of 5 stars Ohhh. Tom Selleck June 5, 2009
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I have followed Tom Selleck's career since he appeared on an aftershave commercial on TV many years ago. The commercial contained a distinctive theme song and, whenever it came on, my son would yell, "Up against the wall, everyone. That guy's coming on TV!" This, as I came trotting into the living room. In those years, Tom did not have a mustache and he was not nearly as good an actor as he is now but I prophesied really good things for him. As we aged together, he became better looking (if that was possible) and his acting talents improved commensurately.

Tom appears to be as man who stands firmly by his beliefs and selects the movies he makes accordingly; thus, very carefully. The Jesse Stone series is a good example of this. Although Jesse is a flawed man, he does not vary from his beliefs; he is not swayed by threats from the prissy little men on the Town Council and he is growing and developing as we watch. I must admit that I stood up and applauded during the last movie when he hung up on his ex-wife as soon as she started to snivel about losing her new job. Hurray for Jesse!

I will buy these movies as long as they are offered, although I do prefer the storylines developed and written by Robert Parker. But that's just a personal preference. Also, Molly is a vital part of this series and should never be excluded from the story. She and Jesse play off each other too well to not have her as a full-fledged member of the cast.

5.0 out of 5 stars Number Five and still rolling May 2, 2009
Format:DVD
I watched the fifth instalment of the Jesse Stone story. I will not say it is my favorite. Stone Cold is my favorite. But the fifth one, Thin Ice is well worth watching and owning. The charactor development is not as good as earlier ones, nor is the plot as itricate. I atribute that to Parkers book and not the acting or direction. The story is still credible. I own the whole series that has been released to date. I have even given some extra DVD copies away to friends to enjoy. I highly recommend this and all of the Jesse Stone films. I live not far away from there the fictional town of Paradise, Massachusetts is supposed to be located. Aside from the area being abit more populated that is portrayed in the movie, they capture the feel of the area 15 to 20 miles North of Boston. I hope there will be a number six so Jesse's charactor is redeemed from his drinking and vindicated in his work...Jesse Stone: Thin Ice
