The answers to these mysteries are mighty predictable (a fact that Bekmambetov tries to obscure by reaching them through a string of silly plot twists), but Profile nevertheless sells us on how seductive these interactions can be.
An undeniably engrossing but almost entirely specious affair: Any factual grounding gives way beneath the film as it devolves into shrill heart-versus-head melodrama.
Screenlife format isn't just a gimmick, it's an effective and unconventional cinematic method that allows you to step straight into the mind of the character and put you through the ringer right with them.
The dichotomy between [the characters], as much as the bigger picture of the rabbit hole Amy goes spiraling down, is what gives Profile its suspenseful power.
Slick, thrilling and utterly involving, and with pitch-perfect performances to go with it, it's a film that not only entertains and engages, but lingers.
Imagine your Windows desktop screen, but even less upsetting, off-putting, and terrifying.
Which makes it all the more frustrating that Profile reduces this interesting premise to its most lurid elements.
The performances are unremarkable, the direction minimal, while the clumsy appropriation of a real world Isis threat for cheap cinematic thrills seems, at best, questionable.
It is contrived but it does hang together, just about, although Bekmambetov cheats it a little with speeded-up "time passing" sequences.
The film crackles with tension.
