Murder by Numbers

Critics Consensus

A predictable police procedural that works better as a character study rather than a thriller.

Audience Reviews for Murder by Numbers

  • May 14, 2012
    the film works best when its not trying to be the normal thriller that hollywood loves. the overall conclusion is a cliche you see over and over again and thats why this film fails to be anything more then a pedastrian thriller

    Two teens decide to commit the perfect murder just because they can. They figure they can set it up that obviously the murder was committed by a local janitor/drug dealer. Of course Sandra Bullock just knows that it wasn't the drug dealer, and the battle of wills and more between her and the two teens is on.

    A decently put together film, nothing special, nothing terrible. The acting made up for a lot of the terrible dialogue and poorly done shots. A very "by the numbers" story leaving very little room for anything out of the ordinary. The characters backstories were a very poor addition to the film and seemed to slow it down even more and made it cheesy more then helping the audience identify with them.
