    It’s a shame the script doesn’t offer anything beyond loose-cannon-cop cliches.

    Morse, at least, may get better chances to strut his stuff in future. For Monteith, this mediocre last act will have to do.

    [A] numbingly inert series of dirty-cop clichés that abruptly builds to an ephemerally poignant climax.

    Familiar paternal regret gets ratcheted up here with an illogical and gratuitous investigative exercise.

    Cory Monteith in one of his last screen roles may be the best thing going for McCanick, a tired cop drama that recycles predictable narrative elements almost to the point of meaninglessness and then substitutes wildly improbable developments in place of actual originality.

    The dour McCanick banks way too much on what it is not telling us, making for a movie that thinks it’s being cryptically suspenseful but is really just annoying.

    It fails to convince, and succeeds only in frustrating.
