The vile sadism of the Saw movies has been replaced by decorative references to Saint Augustine and Immanuel Kant, and there's a beautiful but brainy police profiler (Justine Waddell) on hand to dispense a thick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.

about half-way through the film, I started to get a sinking feeling that this was leading to a giant cliche

...a mix of earnest uncertainty and shameless over-the-top hamminess.

If you happen to be a sheltered religious kid who's dying to see a serial-killer movie but is barred by parental authority from seeing any film containing profanity, gore, or sexual tension, this is your chance.

The scene of faux flames burning in front of a city bus will go down in the annals of Le Cinema du Frommage.

I've seen films that said nothing in entertaining, even compelling ways. 'Thr3e' is not one of them. At least it's not wholesome too.

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.
January 5, 2007
Ultimately aimed at a Christian audience looking for genre entertainment with a certain sense of propriety, the film tries to serve two masters and doesn't quite deliver for either.

It's awfully familiar, right up to the ending, which bogarts the ending of another recent thrill-kill movie but, in fairness, I won't reveal that flick's identity.

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.

Thr3e is an eccentric combination of horror film and religious morality play that isn't entirely successful on either level but gets by on the sheer professionalism of its makers.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

A tame variation on the usual serial-killer art direction and a hilarious number of A-Team-style explosions in which no one is killed. It's offensively dull.

Suspenselessly directed by Robby Henson, Thr3e commits the eighth deadly sin -- boredom.

It's a pretty run-of-the-mill B suspense movie.

Thr3e is far short of Se7en.

It's relentlessly mediocre and does not belong in a venue where you'll have to pay $9 to see it.

Directed by Robby Henson, this theologically driven thriller from 20th Century Fox's Fox Faith division, steps gingerly around sex and watches its tongue. But it's far too comfy with the lingua franca of American cinema: violence.

It has a triple-twist ending, highly appropriate for a picture whose plot depends on permutations of the number three, and I'll bet at least two of those surprise you.

It's hard to imagine an audience that will be satisfied.
