Going to be real honest, it's really not my type of film, while I love everything to do with it, it's just not my sort of thing, so I can't say much else, it was long as well which didn't help.

A solid thriller

An atmospheric thriller with good pace and balance the story unfolds smoothly. The computer sequences date the film but solid performances by Weaver, Hunter, Mulroney and Connick Jr give this film a slightly Silence of the Lambs feel which I suspect is not accidental.

Movie Reviews (1001-1050) (50 movies items)

" The Ups: Well the title says it all really. This is a copycat of a movie about a serialkiller that do things we have seen other serialkillers do before. There are two strong actresses in the main roles who are watchable and the main reason for watching this film. Extra thumbs up for using "Murder by Numbers" by The Police during the film. The Downs: The fact that the killer is a copycat also make the outcome predictable. Annoying final scene that "ask?" for a sequel like it was a TV-pilot for"

A solid thriller

“An atmospheric thriller with good pace and balance the story unfolds smoothly. The computer sequences date the film but solid performances by Weaver, Hunter, Mulroney and Connick Jr give this film a slightly Silence of the Lambs feel which I suspect is not accidental.

Even though we're privy to much of what is going on and there are few surprises the film manages to maintain its suspense throughout. Since Helen Hudson (Sigourney Weaver) is the focus of the copycat killer, logically her agorophobic fortress becomes the focus of his efforts to terrorise her. Hudson appears to be addicted to both antidepressant and/or anxiolytic medication which she (unwisely) washes down with fair quantities of brandy. The net effect of this is that she has believable lapses in the confidence of he” read more

"I liked this way more than expected. The story was very well written. The performances were amazing! Especially from Sigourney Weaver. Holly Hunter was amazing too, it was kind of weird seeing her in a live action movie, I only know her from The Incredibles, A Disney Pixar animation. She's fab though! "
