Above The Law

by Cinnamon Cinemas

There's a serial murderer on the loose, and our best detective is here to figure out what happened.


Boy oh boy do I love me some age inappropriate casting in 48 Hours, which Cinnamon Cinemas delivered here with an upbeat investigation into a serial killer.

Perhaps more than age inappropriate casting in things I love in this comp though, is silly disguises to hide the fact! So a suit and moutstache was absolutely my cup of tea for selling the idea of a teenager as a homicide detective. Lol. I'm not throwing you shade by the way, your lead actress gave a really strong performance.

As to the film itself, it was short and sickly sweet in a loop around fashion as a couple of grizzly inventive murders got looked at. The number 8 wire effects for example with the hair dryer death were what this comp is all about, in my book.

If I was to be critical, the film felt very light in terms of actual story and the twist was highly predicatable and could have been sold a lot better to give either dramatic or comedic impact, but it was zany, fast paced and entertaining.

Story: 2/5
Technical: 2.5/5
Elements: 3/5
Overall: 2.5/5
