[5.50/10] Red Riding: 1974 (2009)

Red Riding: 1974 (2009)

Short review: The three part mystery thriller "Red Riding" has potential andis a good attempt at something riveting. Sadly the introduction "Red Riding: 1974" , while well-made and intriguing enough, doesn't produce quite the result that would be needed to hold viewers to see it through to the end. The first part establishes an effective air of mystery and atmosphere, but the script and delivery of the actors seems so deep and lost in itself that it's hard to keep track of the story and the result is all mood and no substance. It's well-acted enough, from lead star Garfield and supporting actors Anthony Flanigan, as well as Daeziel and Pascoe star Warren Clarke as a cold and charmless police captain. "Red Riding:" 1974" is simply nothing special!

  • My Rating: 5.50/10
  • Rotten Tomatoes: 100% (4 Reviews)
  • IMDb: 7.7/10
