AN INTERESTING PRIME MYSTERY IS ‘SECOND CHANCES’ ABOUT HEADLINE NEWS

June 11, 2021 No Comments

With Second Chances, we add yet another mystery(ish) title to the archives. This one follows Kate Fisher (Melissa George), a journalist on a mission to uncover the identity of the September Slayer, a serial killer. Though she interviews someone who claims credit, she doesn’t pass on the information to the police because she doesn’t believe his story. After he murders again, Kate’s life is ruined, both professionally and personally.

Now, two years later, Kate tries to rebuild. She’s working to find happiness with her son post-divorce and hopefully, peace in her new job teaching at a university. When remnants from the case crop up in her future, she must again work with the police all while trying to protect her son.

If it seems like I’m watching a lot of these lately, you’re right. I am. I watch these frequently partially because I’m finding them interesting, but mostly because my mom and I watch a mystery, and she’s the real mystery genre lover. This one isn’t as good as some of the others I’ve seen, but it’s we do see Melissa George in something other than Alias. I don’t love her in this role, but she’s fine along with her co-stars Ryan Scott Greene, Gianpaolo Venuta and Ellen Dubin.

Aside from the cast, I also don’t this this story is as good. Or maybe not so much the story as just the series of events. For example, in the climax sequence, there’s this scene (don’t want to say specifics for spoiler purposes) that just seems “off”; almost as if it should lead to something other than what it does. However, this is me being more than a little of a nitpick. If you’ve seen some of these Incendo productions, you’ll probably enjoy this one as well. It’s got some mystery (of course), a wide list of suspects and that usual hint of romance, too.

You can find Second Chances (2010) digitally on Amazon Video (at publication with Prime)

Content: There’s a sex scene (making out, some undressing before we cut to the morning after and re-dressing). There may be some minor profanity and the final ten minutes are a bit “tense.” The film is TV14.
