Tattoo Reviews

Stylish and engaging despite its over-reliance on the conventions of the thriller genre.

The premise of this film might be halfway original, but the execution is wholly derivative.

July 4, 2003
Schwentke's solid cast and a visual talent for nailing the unsavory, noir-soaked milieu compensate for some of the more gratuitous eccentricities.
July 2, 2003
This plodding serial-killer procedural grafts hand-me-down malevolence onto a standard rookie-veteran police yarn, the results of which yield nary a fright, let alone a goose pimple.
June 12, 2003
While Tattoo borrows heavily from both Seven and The Silence of the Lambs, it manages to maintain both a level of sophisticated intrigue and human-scale characters that suck the audience in.

It's all gratuitous before long, as if Schwentke were fulfilling a gross-out quota for an anticipated audience demographic instead of shaping the material to fit the story.
