Review: 5ive Days to Midnight - 2004




This is a miniseries about a collage professor. He finds a mysterious briefcase with detailed evidence from a murder investigation. There’s just one thing – HE is the victim and he’s not dead yet. Upon examination he finds that he has five days to figure out what’s going on and to prevent his own murder. It’s a lot harder than you would think! Most of the people around him has a motive and are therefore suspects. Furthermore, destiny might not be willing to change easily! Things destined to happen does in fact happen. At least that’s what the physics genius Carl claims. And his beliefs that all things are connects and that the world will suffer severely if professor Neumeyer survives, makes him to one of the prime suspects! But where does the briefcase come from? It’s constructed in an unknown material. Is it one of Neumeyers friends that’s pulling his leg? It might be from the future? But if that’s the case, who sent it? Will he succeed in preventing his own death? There’s a lot of questions to be answered! Anyway, I liked it quite a lot and I find it pretty suspenseful at times even if some parts are pretty easy to figure out.

7/10
