"The Riddle" (2007)

"The Riddle" is a strange sort of murder mystery. It's two stories in one. A frustrated journalist (Vinnie Jones) is investigating a series of mysterious deaths: a junky found in the river, deaths and injuries at a construction site where there is a labor dispute, and a pub owner who had just discovered a lost manuscript by Charles Dickens in her basement. The name of the Dickens story is "The Riddle". The manuscript is narrated for us by Charles Dickens. There is no connection between manuscript and the current day murders, they are two separate unrelated stories. The murders are explained in a reasonable way, it's just the resolution of the characters that goes off the tracks. It's an entertaining movie but in the end all the loose ends are tied together in a totally improbable and unrealistic way.
