Excessive violence, hysterical directorial overkill and a cast of mostly glamorous non-actors make this relatively short film seem much longer than it really is.

There's nothing particularly deep about this film -- and Harlin's efforts to jazz things up do occasionally go over-the-top.
| Original Score: 2/4

...for all its pseudo logic, Mindhunters is just as implausible as any Halloween sequel.

Its every brain-dead move is designed to cover up the implausible story's beehive of inconsistencies.

Somewhat of a self-fulfilling title.

The best thing that can be said about losing 106 minutes to the brain-numbing Mindhunters is that you have a really stellar excuse to grab the nearest bottle of Finlandia afterwards to forget it all. You may need more than a twenty-sixer, though.

More so than any other action director, Harlin is able to take mediocre and often outlandishly stupid scripts and punch them up into endlessly watchable guilty-pleasure gold.

A killer thriller exploit that will hold some appeal for audiences that tense up in enjoyment at every fresh spurt of blood and ask for little more.

The spirit of Agatha Christie hovers over 'Mindhunters,' a suspenseful mystery with plenty of suspects to keep viewers guessing about the identity of a serial killer.

I came away thinking how uninventive the story was, and how a little imagination together with a quick read from any issue of Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine might have helped.

the more I think about the logic of Mindhunters, the less I like it

Harlin treads a line between well-orchestrated suspense and death porn, even underlining his carnage with anti-smoking and anti-gun messages.

The question is supposed to be, 'Who is the killer?' The question that actually emerges, though, is 'Why we should care?'

Garbage of the potential camp-classic kind.

For what it is -- another stalk 'n' slash -- "Mindhunters" has a few moments of intelligence.

It was supposed to open in the spring of 2003, but they kept pushing back the release date. They should have kept pushing.

The movie contains a laughable premise and too many plot holes.

How much fun you have depends on whether or not you can warm up to the idea of Agatha Christie done in the wildly overbaked style of Deep Blue Sea.
