Critic Consensus: Thr3e is a shoddily made, thrill-free thriller that isn't half as good as the several movies it borrows from (Adaptation, Saw, Se7en).

Critic Reviews for Three
The vile sadism of the Saw movies has been replaced by decorative references to Saint Augustine and Immanuel Kant, and there's a beautiful but brainy police profiler (Justine Waddell) on hand to dispense a thick layer of psychobabble.
There's precious little in the way of clammy tension or mounting apprehension as Thr3e plods toward a climax that is startlingly absurd, yet not entirely illogical.
Ultimately Three, for all its philosophizing, is little more than a standard serial-killer movie with pretensions.
If Thr3e is any indication of what we can expect from the emerging trend of studio-funded faith-based movies, we may find ourselves wishing The Passion of the Christ had been a box-office bomb.
Suspenselessly directed by Robby Henson, Thr3e commits the eighth deadly sin -- boredom.
It's a pretty run-of-the-mill B suspense movie.
Audience Reviews for Three
Bad acting, this came across more as bad Slasher than a Thriller. The Killer sounded like a rip off of Jigsaw from the Saw series, the title is copied from 'Se7en' and the 'Riddle Killer' idea, well that has just come straight from the Batman comics. An unintelligent, unoriginal, very predictable film , which sounded much better than it actually was.
Sometimes I get too lost in a story to see whats ahead. This became a very good thriller for me. A little "Saw" mixed with a little "Seven" and this is what you may get. I think most that do not like the movie are just pissed they did not see what was ahead! Watch the movie for a good and you will enjoy it.... watch it to analyze the "deep meanings" "Saw" and "Seven" had.... you will be disappointed. This fall short of either 2 movies ("Saw" and Seven") but still had just enough to remain entertaining.
For some reason, I think this movie actually was in theaters and for that I cry... This was a second-rate movie with a second-rate story. If you go to film school, the first thing they usually tell you is not to finish a movie where someone wakes up at the end and everything was a dream... this movie had that sort of twist ending that made no sense.
