Detective Superintendent Jane Tennison's (Dame Helen Mirren's) investigation of the murder of a Bosnian refugee leads her to one, or possibly two, Serbian war criminals determined to silence the last witness to a massacre a decade before.
Just watched this after reading a review that accused the cast of "lazy Australian acting" and was intrigued to see what that looked like. I was pleasantly surprised, good story, beginning, middle and end all in the right place, no CGI, no aliens, no fantasy scenes, one explosion. Guy Pierce is a good actor and he usually plays believable characters. I am going to Melbourne at Christmas so I watched it to see what the city looked like.
All in all a lot better than a lot of the movies I have wasted time on in the last few years. Whoever wrote that review seemed to have a bit of spite towards Australians, or Australian actors anyway.
