An Well Done Unmitigated Downer

This is a tragedy of such scope that all the main characters either die, are imprisoned (with long time), or are left broken. The protagonist, Colonel Behrani, and the antagonist, Kathy, were locked in a conflict that evoked some sympathy for both, but an immature and impulsive County Deputy, with carnal motive, hijacks the plot and steers it toward horror. I stopped watching about three-fourths the way through, and then I thought there must be some coming twist in the plot, so I went back and watched to the end, with no relief to unmitigated downward spiral. Kingsley was riviting, but all things considered, I wish I had not wasted two hours on this movie.

Worth seeing once if you're into Connelly.

This is as high as I can rate a show I'm not going to re-watch. There's nothing here that is particularly good. This show has some nice eye candy and very little else. The story is OK but it lacks any real kick to it. I guess it's a must see for the cinematically pretentious.
