Contrary to popular belief, all former wrestlers are not destined to win Oscars. This certainly fits the bill here in the TNT production SHUTTERSPEED. Former wrestler Steve Borden plays no nonsense cop Riley Harris, a detective determined to find a the killer of a friend of his. Nobody murders a friend a Riley Harris, leaving me to guess that the rest of us are on our own.
When Detective Harris isn't beating up thugs, not to mention due process of law; he's sits around in confabs with his boss or his estranged brother, looking bored. I mean, really bored. Well, that makes two of us.
This made for TV fluff would have at least made for decent time burning fodder, had it not been so predictable, better acted and not suffering from such an flat script. Had Borden's character been assigned to detect an original thought in the script, the detective would have hanged up his holster and retired in despair.
