Movie Info

Six years after his first visit to Yorkshire, England, detective Peter Hunter (Paddy Considine) returns to look into the town's high murder rate. Though the deaths have been occurring with alarming regularity over the years, the police have done little to find the killer, who's now known as the Yorkshire Ripper. As Hunter discovers mysterious irregularities in the case, he realizes corrupt police officers (David Morrissey, Warren Clarke) are doing everything they can to stop his investigation.

Critic Reviews for Red Riding: 1980

Audience Reviews for Red Riding: 1980

  • Aug 15, 2013
    The second film in the Red Riding trilogy follows in the footsteps of its predecessor, making for a slow but engaging crime drama with a haunting finale. Six years after the events of the first movie, detective Peter Hunter (Paddy Considine) is investigating a series of murders attributed to a serial killer known as the Yorkshire Ripper. However, just like in the previous movie, it turns out that the Yorkshire police may be corrupt rather than incompetent. It's less thrilling than the first movie, but it's well-made to be sure, and the plots of the both movies connect near the very end. Red Riding: 1980 isn't quite as impressive as Red Riding: 1974, but it's still a fairly good crime drama with enough of a payoff at the end to make it worth seeing for fans of 1974.

    For the first half of the film, it feels like a mediocre movie that has not much to do with it's predecessor, but just there to continue the story and find the killer. We are thrown into an entirely new story with new characters and plot lines, but it is far less interesting than the first. The mentioning of past characters is really the only thing that kept me going until the second half when things start intertwining. The whole film makes you wonder what is going on, until the very last moments of the film where it all comes together and you see why it is a sequel/continuation. Andrew Garfield only makes a cameo in this film, but it has the most meaning out of anything else seen in the film. I thought the first film was great, so I found it very hard to put this film on the same level, but once the end of the film comes full circle, you see why you watched it, and it's worth it!

    "Red Riding: 1980" is more focused than its predecessor, largely in part due to superior direction and outstanding cinematography. Paddy Considine turns in a solid performance, which is masterful in its own way. Overall, the film isn't has haunting as the one that came before it, but it's much more riveting.
