This movie was released in 2019 (but most likely filmed in 2018). Around 40 minutes into the story, an aerial view of City Hall in Philadelphia, Pa., and the surrounding buildings is shown. The video provides a clear view of those buildings including the locally-famous PNB building with its massive letters atop the bell tower. However, all of those letters (three on each side) were completely removed from the building in November of 2014! Out-dated film stock. See more »
I like Allison Sweeney and the way her character Alex treats people meanwhile relentlessly pursuing the solution in a quiet way. I've said in reviews of the other two Chronicle Mysteries that I especially like that this amateur detective isn't reckless and she at least has some justification for getting involved. The fact that Sweeney and Benjamin Ayres, Drew, work well together is another big plus.
As in any good mystery, there are good clues and red herrings. I didn't see the outcome coming, but another reviewer did so I guess there were some clues to that end which I missed. I did think that one of the red herrings was too obvious.
