Jesse Stone 8: Benefit of the Doubt (2012)

Director: Robert Harmon

Writers: Tom Selleck, Michael Brandman

Composer: Jeff Beal

Starring: Tom Selleck, Kathy Baker, Kohl Sudduth, Gloria Reuben, Stephen McHattie, William Sadler, Robert Carradine, Jeremy Akerman, Christine Tizzard, Saul Rubinek, William Devane

More info: IMDb

Plot: Jesse Stone comes out of involuntary retirement after the sheriff who replaced him exploded in their police car. The other officers Jesse worked with have left the department so he is forced to solve the crime on his own.

My rating: 7.5/10

Will I watch it again?  Yeah.

More Saul Rubinek than usual and that's a good thing.  I really dug what Jesse (Selleck) realizes about Hasty (Rubinek) and the direction the story takes.   At least the ending doesn't take place at Jesse's house with him killing the bad guy there.  This one has one of the more satisfying endings of the series which makes me look forward to the next one more than the 7th film did.
