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.
Top Customer Reviews
~ 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.
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
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
