Judge David Johnson went to a Halloween party as a drunk hard-boiled Irish detective one year.
Our review of Jack Taylor: Set 1, published June 6th, 2013, is also available.
Jack Taylor: Set 2 follows the Irish hard-boiled detective (Iain Glen, Game of Thrones) as he roughs up some cretins in search of the truth. A disgraced police official, Jack has since opened his own detective agency, fighting crime draped in an old police coat and with a young protégé by his side.
Three feature-length mysteries on three discs…
• "The Dramatist"
• "Shot Down"
All good stuff. Jack Taylor is a flawed character, bordering on antihero, but Iain Glen is magnetic in his role and ever the badass. The subject matter is dark and edgy, but never feels overly nihilistic. It helps that the mysteries themselves are distinct and absorbing. Worth a few nights of your time for sure.
The DVDs: 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen, Dolby 2.0 Stereo, a 20 minute interview with the director, and photo galleries.
