A couple of genuine thrills but not for kids.

Groucho Reviews

Willfully stupid and obvious for most of its running time, this serial-killer thriller lulls the audience into one gasp-worthy, rug-pulling moment that, while stupid, isn't exactly obvious. [Blu-ray]

Could very well be mistaken for an Ashley Judd programmer.

Princeton Town Topics

A production which would rather scare its audience with gore than reel it in via a gripping whodunit.

The film's villain may take fictitious lives, but the film itself takes up real time that could be spent on better things.

| Original Score: 1.5/4

Taking Lives won't kill you, but it will steal precious hours you'll never have back.

Draxblog Movie Reviews

poor excuse for audience to waste time on a thriller whose makers have problems with understanding the meaning of the word "thrill".

Amir Mokri's purposely frantic (ie: jerky) camera work during action scenes irritates, but still 'Taking Lives' is a marginally diverting thriller.

Style Weekly (Richmond, VA)

When, at length, the promised climax does arrive, it will leave you gasping in astonishment, provided that you have never been to the movies before.

Tyler Morning Telegraph (Texas)

It both startles and sedates.

Movie Metropolis

Take away a couple of good moments at the beginning and the end, and you have a standard TV crime drama.

Film Journal International

Caruso sets up an initially intriguing premise, however gruesome, that unfortunately devolves into a welter of aimlessness, too many red herrings and B-movie hammy performances.

Angelina Jolie did a good job but I still can't get past her "plastic fantastic" look.

Entertainment Today

The best Ashley Judd movie Judd has never made... a labyrinthine serial killer thriller that won't win admirers for its intellect, but does have sustenance of mood in spades.

Taking Lives is bad, Ashley Judd bad, so bad it's mostly an unwatchable mess but also so bad it's almost good.

Dig deeper than the classy looks and the shovelful of psychological topsoil ... and there's nothing here that hasn't been done before -- and done better.

Rachel Deahl
Local Planet Weekly (Spokane, WA)

With its French Canadian setting and strong (rather, strong-looking) cast, Taking Lives is elevated above its genre cliches.

Forrest Hartman
Reno Gazette-Journal

There's a certain type of detective you only find in the movies. The sort who solves murders by lying in a victim's grave.

Cinema em Cena

Abusa de absurdos e coincidências a fim de prender a atenção da platéia, sem perceber que, no processo, está fazendo algo muito pior: insultando nossa inteligência.
