Was pleasantly surprised at the script writing and Selleck's comebacks to leading questions.
His co-stars well written into the script.

This was the first Jesse Stone novel made into a film with Tom Selleck (who bought the franchise). A dead man is found on the beach in Paradise, Mass. and Jesse has his cops run the license plates of all the vehicles nearby. That brings them to a vacationing wealthy couple who are incredibly odd and vulgar. Immediately Jesse realizes these are the killers and they are killing for sport. The second story is about a young pre-teen girl gang-raped at her school which they videotaped. They keep taunting her and threatening to air the videotape on social media so she finally tells her parents and they take her to see Jesse. Everything about the way he handled this was completely wrong. These boys should've been arrested, convicted, put in jail and branded sex offenders. But that's not what Jesse does. He's also dating a woman in her early 20s and he's in his 70s, so the sex scenes are really gross. Another bad Jesse Stone film.

"Stone Cold", 2005, is appropriately named, but not because there is any reference to lack of emotion in executing justice on the people who willfully murdered his "buddy". There is generally no emotion in any of the Jesse Stone made for TV movies. This one actually calls itself a movie and has an "R" rating. I have heard people say that Tom Selleck is one of those men whose voice never developed in a mature man's voice and always has retained some adolescent in it. Agreed.

Script by Robet Parker that show cased a somewhat washed up LAPD cop, Jesse Stone, who travelled cross country to start a new life as the police chief in Paradise MA. Crisp dialogue as Parker's book.

I think this is the first movie. It's pretty good.
