Movie Info

When Dallas attorney Addison Terrill (C. Thomas Howell) arrives home late one night to discover his wife savagely murdered and the words "we're even now" crudely scrawled across the bedroom wall, his nightmare is only beginning in this taut tale of suspense from first-time filmmaker Brad Heller. Hunted as a suspect by police, Addison enlists the aid of his old friend Sam in seeking out the true killer in the seamy underbelly of the city. As the bitter ex-cop who's no stranger to street justice begins to discover that there's more to the story than meets the eye, Sam becomes a crucial ally to Addision and may be able to help him find the killer before time runs out and the law closes in.

Audience Reviews for A Killer Within


(**): [img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon13.gif[/img] A cheesy thriller, but it does have some fun moments. Fair at best.


Good rental. Fairly predictable at the end. Lots of action, I was wincing. Too close to real life so I couldn't watch some of it.

Yet another cheesily entertaining action thriller, albeit featuring a really good musical score. I mean, how could I not think that when C. Thomas Howell and Sean Young are the stars? And for the first 1 1/2 hours I was right. But this has perhaps one of the best endings I've ever seen in a movie, rocketing an otherwise subpar film into a good one (a la Sleepaway Camp and Pumpkin). Not that Brad Keller was bad, but with the right director this could've had blockbuster written all over it. Giancarlo Esposito was superb. It's a shame he has never gotten more mainstream recognition for his talents.
