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

The outline of Murder by Numbers may be familiar, but the filmmakers and Bullock do an expert job of filling in the colors.
We're less in suspense over how (or if) the killers will be caught than we are over the question of just who this tough, hedonistic detective is.
It's well worth catching for its interesting twists on the Leopold and Loeb story.
As long as Schroeder stays with the kids, the film musters a good deal of restless tabloid intensity, and even the occasional twinge of pathos.
Bullock is good, the script is not.
Turns potentially forgettable formula into something strangely diverting.
The climax is the biggest letdown...
Predictable thriller is definitely not for kids.
The problem is that there's no real mystery to this mystery.
... It leaves you feeling that it could have been so much more.
Lesson learned: Never ask Ben Chaplin to lose his British accent.
The literal cliffhanger ending is far too overblown to be convincing, but most of what comes before it deserves praise.
Though the movie is a little weak and Sandra isn't her best here, I really like the bits with Michael Pitt. He was just perfect for this type of slightly unhinged teen role. Gosling is okay too, but Pitt steals the whole movie every scene he's in. I've watched this many times over the years.
A watchable thriller, but lacks real excitement! Bullock is great as always a watchable sunday movie!
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.
I often wonder why this is a much loved film of mine, it's certainly not one of the best murder tales nor is it the most suspenseful of Thrillers, but I feel the reason lies in the forensic analysis and planning of a perfect murder, alongside the battle of intelligences and ego.
This is a film I've watched countless times and never grow old of Ryan Gosling's smug performance.
