Lewis Beale
Film Journal International

Excessive violence, hysterical directorial overkill and a cast of mostly glamorous non-actors make this relatively short film seem much longer than it really is.

There's nothing particularly deep about this film -- and Harlin's efforts to jazz things up do occasionally go over-the-top.

Movie Metropolis

...for all its pseudo logic, Mindhunters is just as implausible as any Halloween sequel.

Combustible Celluloid

Its every brain-dead move is designed to cover up the implausible story's beehive of inconsistencies.

Somewhat of a self-fulfilling title.

Q Network Film Desk

More so than any other action director, Harlin is able to take mediocre and often outlandishly stupid scripts and punch them up into endlessly watchable guilty-pleasure gold.

Cinema Signals

A killer thriller exploit that will hold some appeal for audiences that tense up in enjoyment at every fresh spurt of blood and ask for little more.

ReelTalk Movie Reviews

The spirit of Agatha Christie hovers over 'Mindhunters,' a suspenseful mystery with plenty of suspects to keep viewers guessing about the identity of a serial killer.

I came away thinking how uninventive the story was, and how a little imagination together with a quick read from any issue of Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine might have helped.

Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)

Harlin treads a line between well-orchestrated suspense and death porn, even underlining his carnage with anti-smoking and anti-gun messages.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

The question is supposed to be, 'Who is the killer?' The question that actually emerges, though, is 'Why we should care?'

Garbage of the potential camp-classic kind.

For what it is -- another stalk 'n' slash -- "Mindhunters" has a few moments of intelligence.

It was supposed to open in the spring of 2003, but they kept pushing back the release date. They should have kept pushing.

The movie contains a laughable premise and too many plot holes.

How much fun you have depends on whether or not you can warm up to the idea of Agatha Christie done in the wildly overbaked style of Deep Blue Sea.

There is no necessary tension, no memorable characters, and no sense of fun. Instead, Renny Harlin just lines up his cast and knocks off their boring asses one at a time.
