Watch Cracker - Alternative Versions.
It's been a decade since the last Cracker (the below par White Ghost)
and 11 years since the last decent Cracker so expectations were high,
but unfortunately Nine Eleven just did not deliver.
The two hour special was certainly controversial, raising issues about
the US's financing of terrorism in the Middle East and in Northern
Ireland that most TV dramas, certainly ITV dramas, would usually steer
well clear of.
The problem was it just didn't feel like a Cracker episode, McGovern
had things he wanted to say and just tacked Fitz onto an idea to make
it more accessible to a wide audience. As always, McGovern's ideas were
interesting but they just didn't work in this context, it felt rushed
and would have benefited from being developed further, into a more
rounded Cracker episode or maybe a separate project altogether.
The police were completely 2 dimensional, embarrassingly underwritten
when compared to the likes of Beck, Wise, Penhaligan and Billborough,
while Fitz really had very little to do - it seemed obvious that
McGovern had grown tired of writing for this character, in contrast, he
seemed to relish writing for Kenny, the killer, the only new character
in this film who seemed at all believable.
Stylistically the production was also a failure. Flashing boxes
flickered at the beginning of the programme and in and out of the
breaks for no apparent reason - they looked horrible and distracted
from the story! I can't believe anybody thought it was a good idea to
sacrifice the classic white on black text of the original shows for
these new graphics and text - if it isn't broke don't fix it! Cracker
shouldn't be trying to emulate the style of Spooks and CSI - it was 10
times better than these shows in it's heyday!
And what was with all the flashbacks?? What worked so well in the
original series is that Fitz would get into the head of the killer and
we'd understand their motives through ACTING!
Did we have flashbacks to Hillsborough in To Be A Somebody? NO!
Did we have flashbacks to Floyd sitting in a bath of bleach in Men
Should Weep? NO!
WHY? Because we didn't need them because the performances alone were
strong enough for us to understand the motives of the killers.
Flashbacks are usually a cheap devise used to reinforce a story when
the writing isn't strong enough - and weren't necessary here. Anthony
Flanagan's performance as Kenny was the stand out of the episode and
the constant flashbacks to Ireland and the completely unnecessary 9-11
and Iraq news footage only distracted from the story.
Nine Eleven was something of a wasted opportunity, it had good elements
- Fitz trying to fit into a very changed Manchester, a classic Cracker
killer, and a controversial storyline - but this could have been so
much better if supporting characters had been better written and the
style and feel of the original series had been retained. On this
evidence, I wouldn't want any more Cracker films in the future.
