Movie Info

When FBI Special Agent Joe Merriwether (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) is unable to solve a series of homicides, he decides to enlist the help of his former colleague Dr. John Clancy (Anthony Hopkins), a retired physician with psychic powers. The reclusive Clancy, who shuttered his practice and retreated from the world following the death of his daughter and subsequent break-up of his marriage, wants nothing to do with the case. He soon changes his mind after seeing disturbingly violent visions of Joe's partner, FBI Special Agent Katherine Cowles's (Abbie Cornish) ultimate demise. When Clancy's exceptional intuitive powers put him on the trail of a suspect, Charles Ambrose (Colin Farrell), the doctor soon realizes his abilities are no match against the extraordinary powers of this vicious murderer on a mission.

The chemistry [Anthony Hopkins and Colin Farrell] achieve is a powerful argument for giving Solace its chance on the multiplex circuit.

A bad and boring film that isn't even one of those "it's so bad that it's funny" type of movies. [Full review in Spanish]

La Nación (Argentina)

The first half of the movie is OK, but Hopkins playing a good Hannibal Lecter kind of guy is just excruciating. [Full review in Spanish]

Cinemanía (Spain)

A film that in more capable hands and less studio interference could've been great. [Full review in Spanish]

El Pais (Spain)

The problem with the film is that it lacks focus and it has too many subplots. [Full review in Spanish]

Audience Reviews for Solace

The only solace I had was when this crappy derivative of Se7en ended, because there is nothing worse or more embarrassing than witnessing an amateur director trying to be clever and stylish using every awful trick up his sleeve to make a ridiculous script seem much smarter than it is.
