Critic Reviews for Like Minds (Murderous Intent)
Armed with more imagination than most thrillers with teen protags, Oz-U.K. co-prod Like Minds is an intriguing whodunit centered on two privileged British schoolboys with an unhealthy interest in the Knights Templar.
For about 20 minutes, this psychological thriller seems to know what it's doing.
It's good stuff from Redmayne, but the plot unravels into muddle and absurdity.
The type of film that will be looked back on as a notable starting point for its young star, Like Minds is a perfect showcase for his talent, but less so for writer-director Read, who allows the script to career out of control in the second half.
Audience Reviews for Like Minds (Murderous Intent)
Alex (Eddie Redmayne), a seventeen-year-old student at an elite English boarding school, is accused of shooting a fellow student, Nigel (Tom Sturridge). The arresting officer Martin (Richard Roxburgh) believes Alex is a psychopath and engages a forensic psychologist (Toni Collette) to determine the student's culpability in the hopes of getting a confession from him but she soon finds herself embroiled in a bizarre plot that involves an ancient and powerful secret society known as the ?Templar Knights? and we realize that there is more to Nigel's death than the gunshot incident.
Not your usual kind of murder mystery, it was a little slow moving, but really had depth to it and was really an interesting story, in an ?Inspector Morse? style investigation. An impressive performance from Toni Collette (who just seems to get better and better) and Eddie Redmayne who really gave the character substance. Overall, a really enjoyable watch, let down slightly by an anti-climax ending.
Smart. and a compelling performance from Redmayne, but overall a bit standard, bit predictable, slightly unsatisfying.
