    Guy Pearce brings the late great Peter Temple's down at the heel gumshoe to life. I'll admit, when I first saw Pearce cast as Jack Irish I didn't buy it. But Pearce makes the character his own. Backed by a superb Aussie cast (special mention goes to Aaron Pedersen as the charismatic Cam) witty dialogue and some great Melbourne scenery, it's a must watch for anyone who likes stylish noir, well told.

    A terrific and engaging mystery series that has a tremendous amount of style, suspense, dark humor and action. A full-on and extremely exciting Australian noir. A stunning and mesmerizing crime-drama. Guy Pearce creates one of his best characters ever in one of his most exciting performances. A thrilling piece of television. It's the real deal; great storytelling and great acting.

    I'm not familiar with the Peter Temple novels this miniseries is based on, but this seems to be faithful according to some comments. Guy Pearce plays the titular debt collector cum detective, who for the first part in the series, gets embroiled in a case of police corruption. Pearce is good, but the format of the TV movie is very talky, with dialogue so packed with information a simple distraction can cause you to lose part of the plot. Surely a good mystery, but the presentation is monotonous.
