Audience Reviews for In the Electric Mist

  • Jun 05, 2014
    It was a good movie that I enjoyed. It had a well chosen cast. It was very suspenseful, and kept me interested throughout the entire film. Tommy Lee Jones stars as a New Orleans police detective, who's investigating a bunch of murders alongside this he struggles with his sanity and fights his past alcohol addiction as he digs deeper into the case. It has a very good supporting cast including John Goodman, Ned Beatty, and Mary Steenburgen as Beatty's onscreen wife. 5/27/14

    In the Electric Mist isn't exactly spectacular, but it has a certain quality to it that you won't find in most movies. It's interesting in its own way; weird and very unlike other police-related thrillers. It relies heavily on Tommy Lee Jones, who has a strong, central performance here that makes the film all the more watchable. He plays the typical Tommy Lee Jones character; smooth-talking, always right, and ready to kick some ass whenever a good ass-kicking is in demand. He plays a detective with a long and hard past that includes witnessing the murder of a negro some while ago. Also, his character is an alcoholic. I never quite understood the alcoholic angle. It never really came up in the story at all, yet the beginning of the film seems to almost stress the fact that he is one. The supporting performances are also pretty delightful, especially from John Goodman. He's not around a whole lot, but when he is, it's typical John Goodman as well. He's such a skilled actor. The cinematography was a fine aspect of In the Electric Mist. The picture was wonderfully crisp and there was a fine coloration to it all. The rural parts of New Orleans have always fascinated me, especially Lake Charles. Actually, it was the location of the story that attracted me to this film. The idea of a murder in the bayou just sounds so entertaining. I didn't quite care for the ending. It was such a sad way to end things. Really, the whole film is unorthodox about the way that it carries on, and then, with about twenty minutes left, it turns into your everyday thriller. That just disappointed me.

    The film was so so. I liked Heaven's Prisoners better than this film. I like Alec Baldwin's take on the Dave Robicheaux character better than Tommy Lee Jones's take on the character in this film. Tommy Lee comes off like he usually does just like in Fugitive and Men in Black. The film does have a good ensemble cast. I say pass on this film and watch Heaven's Prisoners instead.
