Movie Info

The Red Riding Trilogy draws to a close in this installment that finds Detective Chief Superintendent Maurice Jobson (David Morrissey) realizing that the Yorkshire Ripper may still be at large, despite the fact that someone has already been convicted of the heinous crimes. When a young girl is abducted in an incident that bears a chilling resemblance to the crimes of the Yorkshire Ripper, Chief Superintendent Jobson is forced to consider the possibility that he helped to put the wrong man behind

Stands as a wrenching tale of power abused and lives discarded. It is powerful stuff.

Like the overall trilogy, it's as haunting as it is riveting, the kind of movie that will keep your attention while it's playing, and stick with you after the closing credits.

There's still a great deal of satisfaction to be had in both the resolution of the plot's many mysteries and the thematic throughlines of the three films.

Anand Tucker's direction and Tony Grisoni's screenplay aren't perfect but is yet another work that stands relatively well on its own but is made infinitely better when viewed in the light of the first two films.

...satisfying in that we see many events in a new light, but Jobson is too complicit in the evil that has taken place to be sympathetic which is the light he is cast in by director Anand Tucker.

1983 is executed rather messily and demands a very concentrated viewer, but the rhythms of violation and corruption remain intact, supplying a fulfilling closer to this ambitious project.

February 3, 2010 Full Review Source:

Exposing a society where every institution is rank with moral disease, and where the innocent serve out the sentences of the culpable, it's hard to tell whether those involved in this project are horrified by the goings-on or are just exploiting them.

Audience Reviews for Red Riding: 1983

The conclusion to the Red Riding trilogy goes back to the story first told in the first episode bringing the story back full circle. Familiar faces come back but most of the main players are missing. David Morrissey finally has the air time he deserves and is backed up by Mark Addy and Daniel Mays who are both brilliant in their roles. I have to say it's my least favourite of the three films. I don't know whether I was surprised by the conclusion or not, I think probably not but then most people has been either killed or had moved on. It was confusing at times and hard to decipher what was flashback and what was happened in 1983. Just like the other instalments, it's directed beautifully and is still one of the best things to happen to British TV ever.

As boring, uninspiring, and completely irrelevant this third installment in the āRed Ridingā? trilogy are, there is some great dialogue and a few contrasts to the original story that it shares. This is absolutely not the conclusion I was hoping for, because they hardly ever shed a light on the past events and itā(TM)s characters involved. I donā(TM)t have much to say about this film, just that it was an utter disappointment. I still enjoyed some of the moments, making it watchable, but without anywhere new to tread, it falls flat sometimes. Stick to the first film, itā(TM)s great!

Some of the best Gritty Drama Actors of the British Screen unite for the 3rd installment to the Red Riding Concluding part.

The high standard of acting, sometimes outweighs the actual story (which admittedly, at times were confusing) but stay with it, it builds up to a non disappointing ending, bringing to an end this impressive trilogy.

An extraordinary final chapter to the unforgettable "RED RIDING TRILOGY." "1983" ties up most of the loose ends from the first two entries, which alone might make this the most gratifying installment.

I still prefer "1980," but this film contains some of the best, most intense, most achingly beautiful scenes of the trilogy, as well as the most shocking of revelations. The performances are superb (the key new addition being Mark Addy) and the writing is top notch; it's a joy to watch all the different plot strands come together, even the most minor of details. It's the most visually striking of the trilogy and ends in a superbly poetic, emotional way.

I think this is the best possible conclusion to a remarkable saga. Providing the necessary answers while still remaining as challenging as previous installements, Anand Tucker's "1983" is not just a stellar work of cinema; it has cemented "RED RIDING" in it's entirety as a classic, monumental achievement.
