    As boring, uninspiring, and completely irrelevant this third installment in the âRed Ridingâ? trilogy are, there is some great dialogue and a few contrasts to the original story that it shares. This is absolutely not the conclusion I was hoping for, because they hardly ever shed a light on the past events and itâ(TM)s characters involved. I donâ(TM)t have much to say about this film, just that it was an utter disappointment. I still enjoyed some of the moments, making it watchable, but without anywhere new to tread, it falls flat sometimes. Stick to the first film, itâ(TM)s great!

    "Red Riding: 1983" is yet another grim look at police corruption in Yorkshire, England that manages to entertain for most of its length. It's not as involving as "Red Riding: 1980" nor as focused, but it's heavy on atmosphere and just as well-acted. (Mark Addy does a top-notch job.) The finale is explosive but could have been done better under different direction. Nevertheless, "Red Riding: 1983" is a great way to end an otherwise engrossing trilogy of films.

    The last of the Trilogy but did they catch the wolf, I had to raise my eyebrows when it was all over. In the third of three in this series children are still disappearing. Who's to blame, did they put the right person in jail in the last film? Is it the man of God, is it the high roller, is it the Chief Inspector of Police. Its full of suspense twist and turns, and I expect to see another film in this series. All based on true events. 5 Stars

    An extraordinary final chapter to the unforgettable "RED RIDING TRILOGY." "1983" ties up most of the loose ends from the first two entries, which alone might make this the most gratifying installment. I still prefer "1980," but this film contains some of the best, most intense, most achingly beautiful scenes of the trilogy, as well as the most shocking of revelations. The performances are superb (the key new addition being Mark Addy) and the writing is top notch; it's a joy to watch all the different plot strands come together, even the most minor of details. It's the most visually striking of the trilogy and ends in a superbly poetic, emotional way. I think this is the best possible conclusion to a remarkable saga. Providing the necessary answers while still remaining as challenging as previous installements, Anand Tucker's "1983" is not just a stellar work of cinema; it has cemented "RED RIDING" in it's entirety as a classic, monumental achievement.
