Chip Off the Old Block

As a dedicated cop, Linda Murphy is a rookie following in the footsteps of her father Freddy. The dad became obsessed with a murder case in Good Falls, and it took such a toll on him that his life was cut short. Now, the daughter may face the same fate.

Working closely with the police chief David Goodman and FBI SA Neil Carter, Linda is the key player in tracking a serial killer in Good Falls. She becomes the "bait" that will provide the much needed evidence to entrap and convict a local electrician who is the perp.

Based on the good set of characters, it was surprising that the film's pacing was sluggish. Many of the conversations were prolonged endlessly, including the banter of the cops and the women who worked along Route 60. Even when a substantial amount of evidence was collected, there was so much dithering that the electrician had the opportunity to commit another senseless murder.

One of the strong points of the film was a focus on the emotional strain that impacted Linda from the stressful work. She had great compassion for the women who worked along Route 60. But the long nights working in a pressure cooker were a genuine and credible expression of why the resilient Linda was a chip off her old father's block.

horrible, shallow juvenile

I can't blame the actor for the horrible script, but this show based on whatever is totally unrealistic when a captain or chief tells you to do something you lay off you don't just keep pressing. She wasn't even off probation. She would've probably been sent her way home without a job. The problem with these reviews are that they want so many characters about such a useless film. I don't know what else to say, but lousy, acting, filmed cheaply, not realistic more like a soap opera. I confess I couldn't make it through the entire show, had to shut it off after I was halfway through most everyone else shed too.

This was actually quite okay...

Well, I have to admit that my beforehand view of the 2023 crime mystery thriller "How She Caught a Killer" might have been a bit tarnished by it being a Lifetime movie. But still, I opted to sit down and watch the movie, giving it a fair chance.

The storyline in "How She Caught a Killer", as written by Yuri Baranovsky and Angela Gulner, was actually a fairly good one. Sure, there were aspects to the storyline that were generic, but for a crime mystery thriller, then the movie actually proved to be entertaining enough for what it turned out to be.

The acting performances in the movie were good, and there were a couple of semi-familiar faces on the cast list, those being Eric Keenleyside and Jamall Johnson.

If you enjoy crime mystery thrillers, then give director Robin Hays's 2023 movie "How She Caught a Killer" a chance. I was adequately entertained by what it turned out to be.

My rating of "How She Caught a Killer" lands on a six out of ten stars.
