A Kind of Murder (2016)

“Proof is not the key thing. It’s doubt.” – Kimmel

Number of Times Seen – 1 (9 Mar 2017)

Brief Synopsis – A young married man becomes fascinated with a recently committed murder and actively tries to seek out the killer in order to understand why and how it all happened.

My Take on it – This is another attempt to try and bring a noir mystery story back into the forefront.

Unfortunately, it fails because the plot and characters just wear us down and things get pretty boring even before the middle point of it all.

I didn’t care for any of the characters and just wanted it to eventually end.

The idea tho is actually extremely interested, but it just isn’t presented to us well enough for us to care.

The cast is quite talented and none of them could hep change the fact that the story is just pretty boringly done here.

Bottom Line – Great idea for a story that just doesn’t work as well as it probably could have. The cast is quite good here, but the mystery of it keeps getting all convoluted and it’s too easy to keep losing interest in the story and the characters.  In the end, I just wanted it to finish up quickly because I couldn’t care less what would happen.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – When Hayley Bennett’s character Ellie is singing in the club, it is actually Hayley Bennett who sings the song “I can’t Escape from You”. (From IMDB)

Rating – Razzie Worthy
