If you are a fan of bathos - this one is for you. More bathos per second than any movie in recent memory. Added bonuses - totally crap script, pathetic acting and incompetent directing.
Time for a remake:
How about a cross between Abel Ferrera's "Bad Lieutenant" and Elio Petri's "Investigation of a Citizen above Suspicion". New hot-shot Robert Pattinson (Cosmopolis) could be the star and the director could be Brian de Palma or Paul Verhoeven.

Can't fault the actors, film crew or even the director but a mediocre script based on an unconvincing murder investigation that gone bad.

This crime drama from the BBC showed promise but ultimately failed to deliver. Character development was poor, and the script not well written. I expected more from the BBC.

This is a film reworking of a UK TV series screened ten years ago. The concept is interesting, but there is nothing to recommend the way it is developped in this outing. Stephen Graham is spot on but Paul Bettany, an otherwise fine actor, is miscast in the lead role, for which he is just not the right choice. Disappointing.

Story was very sad, direction good and acting was very good, but overall, movie was missing something. The leads' self torture is almost gut wrenching at times, however the zen detective is too non-emtional. Worth watching, but could be disturbing. Not because of the crime (which is aweful in iteself, but from the perspective of a bad decision going horribly wrong and wrecking lives as a result.

Gruesome British drama of rogue cops. Good story, way overdramatized. Flashes of brilliance in directing and acting (Brian Cox and Stephen Graham are outstanding; Paul Bettany not) but not enough to save it.

Best line: "The last time you were in bed with a woman you were being born.:

Oh how i LOVED this movie. Paul Bettany, Stephen Graham and Mark Strong are all favorites of mine and this was no let down. Wonderfully written brilliantly acted. If you like Brit Crime Dramas this is a must see!

This movie reminded me of an odd combination of Broadchurch and Luther.

A little mystery would have been a great addition to this film. As it was, I found it too dark for my liking.
