Audience Reviews for Northern Lights


Mainly watched this one out of curiosity to see if Leann Rimes can actually act. Can she? Well... Kind of. The whole movie is extremely b-grade, so for the feel of it and the level it aims at, I would say yes. For a big screen movie - probably not any time soon!
This is a thriller based on a Nora Roberts book. I haven't read this particular one, so I can't say if it's a good adaptation or not. It doesn't especially make me want to run out and read the book either.
However, for a tv movie on a boring day, you may find this one acceptable.

Maybe I am not critical enough, but I didn't mind this movie. It has all the normal aspects of a entertainment-type movie. It has mystery as Nate tries to solve a murder; it has the required love-interest between Nate and Meg. It has parades and gun battles - no car chases though. All in all a stock Lifetime-type movie.

Surprising ending - it was not who I expected it to be.
