Product Overview

Robbie Coltrane (Ocean's Twelve, the Harry Potter films) reprises his role as the abrasive, arrogant, and utterly brilliant psychologist, Dr. Edward "Fitz" Fitzgerald, in this feature-length, final installment of the award-winning crime series. After living as an ex-pat for a decade, Fitz returns to England for his daughter's wedding and finds his homeland profoundly changed in the aftermath of 9/11 and the Iraq war. Against the wishes of his family, Fitz joins the police in hunting for a murderer with no apparent motive.

A New Terror deftly depicts a world held hostage to violence, both personal and political. It blares from omnipresent TV screens, crops up in casual conversations, and casts its shadow on everyday life. As always, Fitz's insights into this world might edify you or infuriate you. But they will never fail to fascinate.

Reviews
ReviewSource Variety
Review Initial excitement about Robbie Coltrane reprising his role as the BBC's flawed, boozing, womanizing criminal psychologist is snowed under by the heavy-handed political statement writer Jimmy McGovern is determined to deliver within this revival vidpic. Jolting at first in its message -- namely, that Americans are a bunch of whiny namby-pambies who didn't care a whit about terrorism before it came crashing onto our doorstep -- McGovern's chest-clearing rant overwhelms the narrative and mutes the pleasure of seeing Fitz back on the case...A decade has passed since Coltrane's Fitz developed a well-deserved cult following in the U.S. that included a short-lived ABC series that (poorly) sought to adapt the character for domestic consumption. Here, we find him visiting the U.K. from Australia for his daughter's wedding, being every bit as pugnacious as ever, when he's drawn back by an unsolved murder...For all the gripping psychological crimers churned out by the BBC, "Cracker's" "new terror" actually reflects an old showbiz excess -- something called a "vanity project."
