A cool, scrappy B movie with no pretentions

James Kendrick
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.

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.

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.

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.

At least it's better than Harlin's last film, that dreadful Exorcist prequel.

On the way to its finale, there's plenty of mayhem to keep you guessing.

Mindhunters may play better on the small screen, but viewers who enjoy these kinds of cinematic mind games will have a good time.

This is a tight, mix-mash of genres that work well as a popcorn flick.

Despite having its release date postponed numerous times over the last two years, Mindhunters turns out to be much better than expected.

Mindhunters pulses with style and confidence, even when it doesn't have a clue how to figure itself out.

Nell Minow
Movie Mom at Yahoo! Movies

The intriguing set-up, some sharp performances, and director Renny Harlin's capable staging of action and suspense make this a passable thriller, if not a memorable one.

| Original Score: B-

Phoebe Flowers
South Florida Sun-Sentinel

A thoroughly compelling suspense film. That doesn't mean it isn't kind of dumb, or largely ridiculous -- it is both -- but here dumb ridiculousness has been elevated to an art form.

| Original Score: 3/4

Luke Y. Thompson
New Times

It's not about the characters, or the dramatic tension, or any kind of believability. It's about how cool the death scenes are, and on that score, Harlin is a champ.
