Editorial Reviews

Robbie Coltrane (Cracker) and Sharon Small (The Inspector Lynley Mysteries) star in the knife-edge thriller, Murderland. Clever and compelling, the events surrounding a traumatic murder are told from the perspectives of the three main characters, including the daughter of the victim, for whom the investigation becomes a haunting obsession.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Twisted Tale of Murderland ,,,,, 4.5 stars March 31, 2013
Format:DVD
~ The director of this three part murder mystery has taken a unique approach. The first two parts of the movie take place 15 years in the past. These first two parts tell the same story from the perspective of two different people involved in the mystery. For that reason, some of the scenes are the same, but from a different perspective. Also some scenes are different because the two characters had different experiences. By filming the first two parts of the movie in this way, the director is able to plant the seed of wonder in the viewers mind - "what really happened? what is the truth?" The third part of the movie jumps to the present and resolves the mystery. A unique approach to TV drama that works fairly well.
~ Cinematography and acting are excellent, especially Robbie Coltrane, Sharon Small, Amanda Hale, and young Bel Powley.
~ In addition to being a murder mystery, Murderland is a good psychological drama.
~ My only reason for knocking the rating from 5 to 4.5 stars is that as great as Coltrane is, he is perhaps not the best person to cast in this particular role.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love Robbie, Liked Movie August 24, 2011
By Nanbo
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Robbie Coltrane is a great actor and this is another fine performance. I was a little worried when I read some disappointing reviews, but I was kept engaged and liked the way the movie was made from the viewpoint of two different people. Not disappointed I bought this one at all.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as we hoped. February 10, 2011
By TMCD
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
We love Robbie Coltrane but he was not right for this part.His humour and dark side just were not given any direction here. Okay story but he can do so much more.! But better than most of the usual tv stuff.

2.0 out of 5 stars waste of resources March 7, 2011
Format:DVD
I enjoyed it because there are good actors and mostly good writing
but was very disappointed in the following aspects:
of the three episodes, the middle one is essentially a reprise of the first and feels like stuffing before the third episode where things start to happen again

the final scene is jaw-dropping stupid, like something out of a bad American police procedural...after all the digging for the truth, the ensemble of protagonists stand and yelp at the bad guys at a school dedication about their crimes, I thought I was watching Michael Moore with a loud hailer/megahphone
AND THEN
Coltrane is run over by one of the bad guys after this yelling fit
what???? is this the best ending that could have been written, Coltrane must have had another engagement and the production run out of time

Great story! Can't go wrong with a BBC movie! The actors were amazing. Robert Coltrane is one of the best British actors.
