Denzel Washington plays a paraplegic forensic detective who collaborates with a super-smart street cop played by Angelina Jolie to track down an elusive serial killer who sends taunting messages at the site of each of his victim's crime scenes. While the twist at the end is pretty easy to figure out about a quarter of the way through the film, getting there proves to be fairly entertaining. Washington and Jolie do commendable jobs of creating everyday heroes as they race against time to put a stop to the madness and mayhem. Queen Latifah, Michael Rooker, Ed O'Neill, and Leland Orser lend passable support as characters surrounding the events. It tends to play it safe a bit too much but still manages to keep our attention throughout.
