Blood


What is it about British crime dramas that make them better than their American equivalents?  Perhaps I'm just an Anglophile at heart, but this year's 'The Sweeney' and 'Broken' certainly deserved a much wider audience than they received and we can now also add 'Blood' to that list.

Paul Bettany, Stephen Graham and the always great Mark Strong play cops investigating the murder of a young girl.  They're sure they have the right suspect in custody but they don't have the proof to hold him.  So how far will they go to bring justice?  This is a great action-less drama with a lot of emotion and a terrific cast exploring the question, how far is too far?  You can see it (as well as 'The Sweeney' and 'Broken') now on Video on Demand.

Grade: A
