Cracker-New Terror (2007)
|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.
