Mar 07, 2012It was kind of boring. This is the type of movie that I don't understand why it was even made - there is no redeeming value.
Aug 14, 2011It's 4 a.m. and torrents of rain pour down on a roadside diner in New Mexico. Inside, an innocuous looking salesman sips coffee while catching up on his fishing magazines. Suddenly, he is startled by an unusual looking man who sits down at his table and displays horrific drawings that send the salesman fleeing for the safety of his car. The salesman is the first victim ... or have there been others? Assigned to the case is FBI Agent Thomas Mackelway (Aaron Eckhart). Wrestling with his own demons, Mackelway is plagued by terrible headaches and feels he is being watched. He is. A second victim is found -- a sixth grade teacher from Boulder, Colorado, discovered in an abandoned vehicle. Is there a connection? Mackelway isn't sure, but he does know that the third murder is personal. He knows the victim. Killed while attacking a young girl in a parking lot, the victim was Mackelway's personal nemesis, a heinous killer himself who Mackelway let slip through the cracks. Is this new killer somehow helping Mackelway...or taunting him? Is it the prey who now watches the pursuer? FBI Agent Fran Kulok (Carrie-Anne Moss), Mackelway's former partner and one of the few people who knows his deepest secrets, is sent to Albuquerque to assist him on the case. Together, they set out to solve this lethal puzzle, a labyrinth that becomes more complex as the killer starts faxing Mackelway hundreds of maddening, chilling clues, all of which point to a cunning renegade named Benjamin O'Ryan (Sir Ben Kingsley). Trained in a secret government remote viewing program which enabled five elite agents to telepathically get into the hearts and minds of killers and their victims, O'Ryan has become consumed with tracking the ultimate manifestation of a killer, an entity he calls Suspect Zero. But has O'Ryan's ability to identify with both murderers and their victims turned him into the very same type of monster he is trying to bring to justice, could he be Suspect Zero? While O'Ryan continues his pursuit, Mackelway tracks O'Ryan, and in the process both men find they are confronting humanity's darkest side... and entering directly into the mind of a killer.Martin D Super Reviewer
Dec 18, 2010While Aaron Eckhart and Ben Kingsley bring great performances, it is not enough to overcome the sappy writing that includes the "I slept with my partner" sub plot that adds nothing to the story more than the cliche former lovers working together drama. Too much fiction in the science fiction part of this story does not help either.
Sep 11, 2010A movie with eye catching cinematography very good acting and story with careful attention to detail that sadly in the end succumbs to a terrible deaux ex machina. The first 2/3 are Seven mixed with silence of the lambs. Ill really try hard to not be a spoiler on this movie, but in any movie when you try and blend psychic abilities into the core of the plot line chances are you open up more plot holes than even a talented director like Merhige can fill. I did click back and forth on the chapters trying to find fault and I could not, but the ending just leaves you hollow. I qued this movie after witing a review for Merhiges Shadow of the Vampire. I thought wow how did I miss this Jem starring Ben Kingsley, Aaron Eckhart and Carrie Anne Moss in a story about serial Killers. Unfortunately I had seen it when it came out and it was so un remarkable it slipped my memory. Im hoping it more a comment on the movie than my aging memory.
