Director Lee Tamahori and screenwriter Marc Moss treat their star (and his character) with all due respect, and manage to turn out an engrossing, entertaining movie in the process.

Even at half speed, Freeman excels: He knows how to whip out his badge at a crime scene and make it seem as if he had been doing it his whole life.

A decent (if entirely unmemorable) followup to Kiss the Girls...

[Lee]Tamahori keeps the pacing lively enough that he doesn't allow the audience time to linger on the many plot implausibilities

As with a magic show, you know you are being fooled but you sit back and enjoy the illusion anyway.

There's deception, double-crosses and duplicity in this psycholgical thriler - and it's great to see an actor as classy as Morgan Freeman propelling a franchise like this.

...what surprised me, however is that ACAS knows about the [criminal mastermind] stereotype... and throws us a twist that turns the whole film on its head.

Delivers a good share of suspense, thrills and psychological goose bumps.
