David Mamet's modern, intriguing morality play is well acted by Joe Mantegna.

Audience Reviews for Homicide


Kinda dull. I feel like I missed the point. I hope I did at least, because if there was none, then I see no reason for this to even exist. Either way, it was too tedious for me to watch the first time, so whatever the point may or may not have been will forever be a mystery to me. This will not be re-watched by this guy.

Really interesting plot and good story. Love Joe Mantegna and William H Macy is a bad as hard nosed cop which is quite a turn. I will never like Mamets dialogue, yes its very clever but it always feel unnatural to me. I see a good movie here with potential for a better one in different hands. Magtena always is great to watch as takes care of the audience.

It's some of the best writing Mamet has ever done (both on stage and on film), raising all kinds of questions regarding identity, racism, and how society and individuals address both. The film's ambiguous, labyrinthine plot probably hasn't helped raise more cultural awareness or discussion of "Homicide", which is a real shame.
