Jolie needs a role with teeth, not one that merely exploits her bee-stung lips.

The best bet might have been to ditch the tedious police procedural and just let the flick turn into the shamelessly jumpy creep fest it was born to be.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
March 18, 2004
Serial thriller starts with a bang, ends with a whimper, and never really moves beyond following its forebears.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
March 16, 2004
First-rate production values and Angelina Jolie cannot overcome threadbare material.
March 18, 2004
Director D.J. Caruso gives the movie some life, particularly in a stylishly energetic footrace, but there's not much he can do with this dopey script.

Sadly, nothing in this thriller comes close to the intensity of last year's media coverage of star Ethan Hawke's alleged infidelities on location in Montreal.

If the producers really wanted to capitalize on Jolie's freakazoid factor, why didn't they have her use those gi-normous lips as antennae?

It all culminates in a final showdown so ludicrous that if I explained it to you in detail, you would laugh and call me a liar.

It's slick nonsense at best and for the first hour it's watchable.

Unfortunately, Taking Lives doesn't add any brilliance to the exhausted spot-the-serial-killer psychological thriller, but get props for a clever ending.

If Taking Lives is the best script Angelina Jolie can find, then she might as well strap back on Lara Croft's guns.

Taking Lives is the eleventh Angelina Jolie film I've seen and the eleventh one to fail on some level or another.

March 18, 2004
The story is, as you can tell, preposterous from the get-go...
September 23, 2004
When, at length, the promised climax does arrive, it will leave you gasping in astonishment, provided that you have never been to the movies before.
March 19, 2004
As Angelina Jolie gets better as an actress, her films get worse. It's not supposed to work that way.
