Very dark. - Mystic River review by JD

Spoiler Alert
08/06/2010

After the abduction it keeps getting grimmer. A man with a huge problem in his psychological past has a wife who becomes so suspicious of him that she sets him up to get abducted again by some Mafia style thugs. The film explores some seedy and unpleasant sides of Boston life. Larger than life detectives carry the plot. I hope you can tell, I found it morbidly gripping but ultimately it left a dirty feeling.

An excellent film but an unsatisfactory end in my view - Mystic River review by PJ

Spoiler Alert
Updated 16/08/2019

This is a very good film, with a dark, brooding atmosphere -- a social drama that is also a thriller, re-creating very well the atmosphere in a poor working-class district of Boston.

However, I found one specific aspect of the movie implausible. This does not really affect the quality of the film but prevents it from 'working' 100%. Without divulging the ending and the plot, I can only say that I was left unconvinced, at the very end, by the resolution that we are presented with in relation to the central mystery at the heart of the film.

I would still recommend this film for its tension, suspense, atmosphere, and acting.
