Noon, Seven, Prime7

M. 2010. Hard-as­nails pros­e­cu­tor Andie Macdow­ell and in­ves­ti­ga­tor Daniel Sun­jata re-open a 20-year-old cold case but find their ef­forts are not ap­pre­ci­ated by mys­te­ri­ous forces. Solid po­lice pro­ce­dural boosted by stand-out per­for­mances from the leads. Corn­well’s books aren’t al­ways such in­trigu­ing thrillers.

Get Smart

7.30pm, GO

PG. 2008. Get a new team of writ­ers, any­way. Reimag­in­ing of Get Smart for the 21st Cen­tury works only in­ter­mit­tently and goes on far too long. Steve Carell is al­ways like­able and plays Smart as more of a nerd than a dope but the ac­tion se­quences get in the way of the com­edy. Sorry about that Chief! Anne Hath­away.

The Big Dream

9.30pm, SBS2

½ M. 2009. In the tur­moil of the ’60s, po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing a stu­dent drama or­gan­i­sa­tion and send in un­der­cover cop (and would-be ac­tor) Sca­mar­cio to spy on them. Once ac­cepted how­ever, he finds their ideas in­fec­tious and their leader Jas­mine Trinca ir­re­sistible. How long will it be be­fore he ques­tions his own val­ues, not to men­tion his ca­reer choice? Ric­cardo Sca­mar­cio.
