Mystery movies are super popular at my house. The suspense films from the production company Incendo can go either way, but Time of Death is actually pretty good.
Time of Death (2013) Film Review
Working a murder case isn’t exactly in the wheelhouse of FBI Agent Jordan Price (Kathleen Robertson). But as a special branch assigned to the DOJ, Jordan’s bosses want answers. Answers to the death of a powerful business man. On this case, Jordan is assigned to work with a rookie Boston detective Eliot Larken (Gianpaolo Venuta). Getting the promotion for his work as an undercover, this is also Eliot’s first murder case.
As they dig deeper into the case and more victims enter the case, they discover that perhaps this case isn’t what its first impression suggests.‘TIME OF DEATH’: FBI WORKS TO STOP KILLER IN SUSPENSE MOVIE! #Movies #Suspense #SuspenseMovie Click To Tweet
This is actually a pretty interesting plot and the pace is pretty good, too. What I like about it most is the cast, who, I think are fabulous. I haven’t seen Robertson in much, but she’s at her best here. She has that “edge” to her that makes her a good agent, but also an appropriate vulnerability (because of her experience, or lack of). It makes for a good character study. I also end up liking most everyone in the cast (the good guys) which is always a risk because these Incendo productions are never afraid to make the person who, on paper should be the good guy, bad.
Time of Death is one of the better suspense films in this genre. It’s got just enough mystery to keep the plot rolling without making anything “too creepy.” There interesting interactions and conversation, and if you pay careful attention, you can solve the mystery before the good guys do. Unless you don’t like mystery, this one might be something to consider.

Content: there’s two sex scenes. One is in a car with removal of clothing and heavy kissing before it cuts to them dressing again; the next is a kind of “after” scene as they lay under the sheets. There’s at least one other “make out” scene, too. A man is shot and another gets a fatal stab wound. There may be a bit of profanity. The film is PG-13.
