Movie Info

At first, the made-for-cable melodrama Blood Crime seems determined to emulate the classic Alfred Hitchcock Presents episode "Revenge" -- but there's far, far more to it than that. Vacationing in the forest outside his native Seattle, city detective Daniel Pruitt (Johnathon Schaech) is stunned when his wife Jessica (Elizabeth Lackey) is sexually assaulted. While driving her to the hospital, Daniel collides with a semi, whereupon Jessica insists that the driver was her assailant. Blinded by his rage, Daniel jumps out of his car and pummels the other driver into unconsciousness. Upon arriving at the E.R., however, the hysterical Jessica changes her story, claiming that she was attacked by the male nurse taking care of her. Already distraught over the possibility that he has beaten up the wrong man, Daniel is in no mood to discover that his victim has died -- and that the dead man is the son of local sheriff Morgan McKenna (James Caan), who has his own peculiar ideas about justice and retribution. Keeping mum about his involvement in the case, Daniel is placed in the awkward position of investigating the death of McKenna's son. And then, evidence is unearthed suggesting that Daniel may not be a murderer after all. Filmed in New Zealand under the title The Wrong Man, Blood Crime premiered over the USA Network on September 13, 2002.more

Critic Reviews for Blood Crime

All Critics (2)

Blood Crime is precisely what one would expect from a movie "presented by the USA Network". And that ain't much.

Full Review… | March 31, 2004

An intriguing synopsis doesn't always mean compelling watching. Firstly, because much of the Australian support cast are sporting appalling Yank accents, and because of the vacillating, stale script.

Fair James Caan outing. Jonathan Schaech holds his own also. Typical plot and result where there were no surprises.
