Gumshoe caught up in the past - The Kid Detective (2020) - Review

Updated: Feb 6, 2021

A once-celebrated kid detective, now 32, continues to solve the same trivial mysteries between hangovers and bouts of self-pity. Until a naive client brings him his first 'adult' case, to find out who brutally murdered her boyfriend.

This movie had so much untapped potential is was infuriating to watch. Its starts with a great premise. A once loved kid detective becomes caught up in a case he never solves at 13 to become a grown man stuck in a bad situation that he cant escape from. I wish this movie had been pushed a little more then it was. It dragged in many places, and you did not connect with any of the characters enough to care when there was a break through in the cold case. This could have been so much better. Avoid this one, unless you have nothing on your list to watch.

Ranking 4.5/10
