Storyline

The fourth Relentless movie has Detective Sam Dietz (Leo Rossi) investigating a series of ritual murders committed by another L.A. serial killer. The only clue linking the victims is that all of them were in the services of a shady and unconventional therapist named Dr. Sara Lee Jaffee (Famke Janssen) who may know a lot more than what she is telling. Dietz and his new detective partner, Jessica Parreti (Colleen Coffey), think there is a link between Dr. Jaffee's therapy sessions and the murder victims when they learn that all of them had a near-death experience in the past. On the home front, the recently widowed Dietz struggles to raise his teenage son, Cory (Christopher Pettiet), on his own and deals with the troubled teenager slacking off in school, abusing drugs, and carousing with a local and similarly troubled teen girl.

Another strong entry but I was a bit disappointed.
17 September 2009 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

Sam Dietz is back for the fourth time to track down another serial killer, only this one has a thing for ritual executions.

RELENTLESS 4 is yet another strong entry in the popular detective series but towards the ending I found myself being rather disappointed with this film, first I missed Robert Costanzo from the third film, his character made the third film extremely enjoyable, second thing is RELENTLESS 1, 2 and 3 had great actors in the role of serial killer, in this one the guy that played the killer wasn't as good, even though you didn't see him that much he just didn't make the character very interesting and I don't even know who the actor is.

Leo Rossi once again played his part very well and there was Famke Jansen who showed she had talent before she became known for her role in GOLDENEYE.

Overall, RELENTLESS 4 wasn't the worst of the series but I myself was just disappointed because of a few things but I would recommend this film to anyone who wants to see it, at least its not a waste of time.
