Audience Reviews for Jesse Stone: Night Passage


I went in for the first part assuming it's a suspense TV movie. Turned out to be an okay thriller. So I sat for this expecting it to be a thriller. But this one was neither suspense, mystery nor any decent thrills. The performances are first-rate, and so are some dialogues, but the story lacks meat. Just a simple cop flick. Watchable, but not recommendable. I'll be going for further parts of Jesse Stone only if I'm running out of options desperately enough.

Setting the dinner table for a long string of made-for-TV movies in this Robert B Parker novels-turned-movies, Tom Selleck is given free reign as Jesse Stone, an LAPD Detective who drinks himself off the job and out of town, only to turn up as the Police Chief of quiet little Paradise, Massachusetts. While getting acquainted with the town and the job, he investigates the murder of the outgoing Police Chief at the hands of a mob hitman also involving the crooked head of the city council. Selleck is just incredible as the tired and troubled Stone and that's probably why he's been given this line of films practically until he dies.

This is my first time TV movie based on Robert B. Parker's Jesse Stone novels. I believe the greatest attraction of this melancholic story is its simplicity, with credible characters and situations and great performances. Tom Selleck is a pitch perfect as the police chief Jesse Stone in this mystery/cop TV movie. His character is just so hilarious, but not at the point where he would be considered a comedic character. I love his smart-alec comments and lines. And I'm feeling really sorry about the loss of his dog.
