To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Was outstanding while ken Stott was the lead however when he left and was replaced by Marc Warren and a new cast for The Rapture it was like watching a different program. No wonder the series ended there it was a bridge too far. If the series had ended when Ken Stott left I would have rated it 5 stars.
I have watched series 1-4 . The term 'Messiah' emplies to me a story based on crimes related to Christianity. Well , that is the deal in series 1 and 4 , but surprisingly not in 2 and 3 which presented horrfic kills and nice plots , but not religion related stuff. In general the plot , story and acting were all great. In short:
Messiah 1: A nice plot, but the end could have been done in a better way Messiah 2: A very good episode with an excellent twist (imo) Messiah 3: A very good episode Messiah 4: I enjoyed this the most ( plot and story wise) , yet the end was strange and not very convincing.
I am new to the crime and thrilling business . I have watched BBC Sherlock S1 and S2 and now Messiah. Well, Sherlock is just better and much more thrilling and brilliant , yet it has unrealistic things like "a private detective consultant" , extreamley complicated cases and the super genius who catches the smallest details. Whereas, Messiah is very realistic ; you got an investigation team who examines the scene ,does forensic analysis , consult professionals when needed , but its main problem is missing the thrilling factor that Sherlock presents. I recommend both shows. I will give Messiah a 4 star and Sherlock an almost 5 stars rating.
In it's day this was a masterpiece of TV crime drama, such is its appeal that even today it is still brilliant. Then why not 5 stars. Well for me series 1 to 4 were awesome, Ken Stott and his team were were outstanding. Sadly, Marc Warren good actor though he is, and his team didn't have the same effect for series 5, and so for me it gets 4 stars. I'm not really sure why Ken left or the series ended but if the writers decided to carry on without him or resurrect the role with someone else but as a follow on series 5 lets the other 4 down.
