      John Leonard New York Magazine/Vulture If you aren't already a fan, you may be mystified. If you've always been one, though, this is closure -- like a guillotine.

      Audience Member I love Homicide and many of the greatest episodes of Homicide could have easily stood up on their own as a feature length film...not sure this is one though. It's a kind of cringey 'we're getting the band back together' storyline to investigate an assassination attempt on G (running as Mayor). There's also some clunky near-to-death hallucinations and some pointless reveals, it all just doesn't really hang together. I enjoy spending time with these characters again but they deserve better than this. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member Fantastic wrap up to a phenomenal show. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member (spoiler alert) gunman shoots a politician, politician ends up in surgery, gunman appears again and discharges an entire round into the surgeons but fails to put even one into the targeted politician. That was enough to put me off the movie; that and the poor acting on behalf of half the cast. Porting this series to a movie just didn't work. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Starts off really well. The hyperspeed, quick witted, back and forth dialogue is brilliant. The detective work/police procedural is alot of fun, Macy and Mantegna are joyous when they share the screen. But the film never recovers when it establishes the Jewish conspiracy theory storyline/s. Some of it has some wit to it but most of it comes off as hokey. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member what a crappy ending to a great show. it was nice to see old faces from previous seasons but the writing was just shabby. even andre braugher couldn't save it. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Bizarre. Eccentric. Peculiar. Yet...fascinating. Another very unique take on directing actors and striving for real life performances. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews
