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.

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.

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

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.

At least it's better than Harlin's last film, that dreadful Exorcist prequel.

Corny? Oh, yeah. But it's also reasonably good fun.

The intriguing set-up, some sharp performances, and director Renny Harlin's capable staging of action and suspense make this a passable thriller, if not a memorable one.
| Original Score: B-

A thoroughly compelling suspense film. That doesn't mean it isn't kind of dumb, or largely ridiculous -- it is both -- but here dumb ridiculousness has been elevated to an art form.
| Original Score: 3/4

It's not about the characters, or the dramatic tension, or any kind of believability. It's about how cool the death scenes are, and on that score, Harlin is a champ.
