A solid thriller

8 years, 2 months ago at Sep 11 2:52
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 sus... read more

An average movie

I actually already saw this movie but since it was a while back and since I had it on DVD, I thought I might as well check it out again. Well, I’m glad I gave it another shot. Indeed, the first time around, I thought it was just so lame and, in my opinion, it was one of the worst serial killer thrillers I had ever seen. However, with this re-watch, I was able to see that there was actually some ... read more

"18.8, Netflix Tässä on mukana sitä 90-luvun jännäreiden estetiikkaa, mikä meikämannen tapauksessa yleensä riittää jo pelkästään tekemään elokuvasta katsottavan. Sigourney Weaver on jees."

"16.7. (Netflix) Sarjamurhaajia kopioivasta sarjamurhaajasta saisi varmasti Fincherin käsittelyssä mielenkiintoisen tutkielman ihmismielen nyrjähtäneestä puolesta. Silti Copycat on ihan hyvin etenevä jännäri, jossa on muutamia ihan toimivia jännitystä nostavia hetkiä. Loppuhuipennus sen sijaan on sen verran kova antikliimaksi, että se jos mikä pilaa elokuvan lähes kokonaan. Pisteet yläkanttiin, koska sain elokuvasta inspiraatiota lukea näistä oikeista murhaajista, joiden teot ja"

Movies I Think Should Be Adapted into TV Series (20 movies items)

"I think this could make for a dark investigative series following a homicide detective, and her partner, and an agoraphobic criminal psychologist; as they try to identify and capture/kill the perpetrator/s before anyone else dies. For a series, they could really draw things out. Maybe it takes them a while to realize that they're dealing with one person. Maybe the killer is a lot more smarter and meticulous leaving misleading clues. Maybe he/she occasionally targets someone close to them; or t"

“I actually already saw this movie but since it was a while back and since I had it on DVD, I thought I might as well check it out again. Well, I’m glad I gave it another shot. Indeed, the first time around, I thought it was just so lame and, in my opinion, it was one of the worst serial killer thrillers I had ever seen. However, with this re-watch, I was able to see that there was actually some interesting stuff in this flick. Indeed, the copycat concept was not bad at all and I have always been intrigued by the agoraphobia which was fairly well developed in this movie. Furthermore, I was actually quite impressed by Dermot Mulroney and Holly Hunter who delivered one of the most interesting police partners I have seen in a very long time. Finally, it is very rare that you get to see not o” read more
