Movie Info

Tom Selleck returns to the role of small-town police chief Jesse Stone in this prequel to the CBS TV movie Stone Cold. Having been booted from the LAPD for drunkenness (brought on by his divorce), Stone heads to tiny Paradise, Massachussetts, where through the auspices of local banker Hastings Hathaway (Saul Rubinek) he is appointed chief of police. His first assignment is to investigate the murder of his predecessor Lou Carson (Mike Starr), whose death may or may not be tied in with a local domestic-abuse case involving minor mob functionary Jo Jo Genest (Stephen Baldwin). Although his new staff has a lot of trouble dealing with Stone's eccentricities--not least of which is insisting upon taking his pet dog Boomer wherever he goes--Jesse gradually wins them over. Along the way, he also tries to melt the heart of his staunchest adversary, attractive attorney Abby Taylor (Polly Shannon--all the while fending off the advances of banker Hathaway's libidinous wife Cissy (Stephanie March). Based on a novel by Robert B. Parker, Jesse Stone: Night Passage was originally telecast on January 15, 2006. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Jesse Stone: Night Passage

  • Feb 06, 2013
    I went in for the first part assuming it's a suspense TV movie. Turned out to be an okay thriller. So I sat for this expecting it to be a thriller. But this one was neither suspense, mystery nor any decent thrills. The performances are first-rate, and so are some dialogues, but the story lacks meat. Just a simple cop flick. Watchable, but not recommendable. I'll be going for further parts of Jesse Stone only if I'm running out of options desperately enough.

    I liked this thriller a lot thanks to Tom Selleck once again reprising the role of the small town police captain. This is a prequel to the first film adaption of stone cold. The film is mostly a character study of the central character with a mystery thrown in to mix things up. the mystery isn't suppose to be hidden as the villain of the piece is Stephen Baldwin who is hamming it up again. He's character isn't given a lot of play and its hard to really understand why he is doing such things. The film works better as a character study then a thriller but the film is strong including this flaw. much better then expected and hopefully the strength will continue into the next adaption

    Night Passage succeeds at being more atmospheric than Stone Cold, and features another great showing by the underrated Tom Selleck. It still has the same limitations, however, notably a formulaic plot and uninteresting antagonists. Still, very watchable.

    Setting the dinner table for a long string of made-for-TV movies in this Robert B Parker novels-turned-movies, Tom Selleck is given free reign as Jesse Stone, an LAPD Detective who drinks himself off the job and out of town, only to turn up as the Police Chief of quiet little Paradise, Massachusetts. While getting acquainted with the town and the job, he investigates the murder of the outgoing Police Chief at the hands of a mob hitman also involving the crooked head of the city council. Selleck is just incredible as the tired and troubled Stone and that's probably why he's been given this line of films practically until he dies.
