Movie Info

Some six months after the cancellation of the popular, hard-hitting TV cop series Homicide, most of the cast members were reunited for a two-hour TV movie, which deftly (and somewhat surprisingly) combines stark, raw realism with Sartre-esque flights of fantasy. Several members past and present of the Baltimore Police Department's homicide squad are brought back together when their former skipper and current mayoral candidate, Al "G" Giardelli (Yaphet Kotto), is gunned down by a would-be assassin. As former partners Frank Pembleton (Andre Braugher) and Tim Bayliss (Kyle Secor) conduct their own personal search for the perpetrator, the comatose "G" discovers that not all police review boards are conducted by the living. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Homicide: The Movie


Exciting, but at times heavy-handed. Worth a watch if not for William H. Macy calling people faggots and telling other detectives to shut the fuck up.

Good movie, well acted. I have rated it highly because it was obviously of a high standard, but for me personally, I didn't love it, and would not watch it again. It is a little confusing, and the racism issues, while important, ruin what would have - for me - worked better as a straightforward crime movie. I am sure there are many who would enjoy this.

Finally tracked this one down and I'm glad that I did. The dialogue is very Mamet which means incredible dialogue and monologues that actors will be using for auditions for years to come. Joe Mantegna delivers well.
