om Selleck stars as Robert B. Parker's fictional hero Jesse Stone in this mystery that finds the retired police officer investigating the possible murder of a young woman Stone cared for who appears to have died of a drug overdose. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi
The dialogue is very good as usual, but the stoic humor is missing. In fact everyone except the reformed car salesman mopes for the entire movie as everyone tries to deal with the unpleasantness of everyday life, including the dog!
Also the ending was more predictable than The Titanic and very similar to the ending of another Jesse Stone movie.
Hopefully Innocents Lost is just a prelude to a much more entertaining followup; that town council needs its come-uppance!
I have all but this one and the last one he made that was on tv last Sunday night. But I read that CBS isn't going to do anymore and that Tom Selleck wasn't sure if he will make any more. He has had to put his own money in some to get them made. Hopefully someone will take them over.
I liked this film. But I must confess that I felt a sense of deja vu: My wife and I wondered for several minutes if we hadn't already seen this film. Could it be that this franchise is becoming hackneyed and old?
