An excellent addition to the Messiah series
on 27 June 2010
Messiah 5 The Rapture does not feature Ken Stott or any of the cast from the previous Messiahs, instead it stars Marc Warren (Hustle)and features a brand new investigation team. Marc Warren and the rest of the cast do an excellent job playing troubled detective Joseph Walker. Messiah 5 sees Walker an his team investigating a series of killings with mysterious symbols left in sand by the victims.
Like the other series Messiah 5 moves at a good pace and I quickly got used to Marc Warren being in it and no Ken Stott. There are a number of good twists and I did not guess who the killer was this time. I only guessed the killer in Messiah 2 and 4. There are no extras on the dvd which is a little dissapointing. Hopefully they will make Messiah 6 soon - it would be nice if it had both Marc Warren and Ken Stott in it. So if like me you enjoy a good murder mystery then Messiah 5 The Rapture is well worth watching.
