Storyline

After young policewoman Gina Pulasky succeeds in handling a domestic fight particularly well, she's added to a small team of detectives assigned to a case of gruesome child killings. She proves herself to be a worthwhile reinforcement by tracking down the prime suspect, a disturbingly smart young man named Kyle Timler. Much to the horror of her team mate and lover Will McCaid, Pulasky goes undercover to infiltrate in Timler's life and trying to get as close to him as necessary to make him confess his crimes without even noticing it. A dangerous mission involving a process of growing identification with the killer, something that doesn't leave Pulasky unscathed. Written by Swie Tio <sweet_t@dds.nl>

Thanks to those who commented previously, else I would have missed an exceptional experience.
29 December 2001 | by (Baltimore MD area) – See all my reviews

I just finished viewing this finely conceived, and beautifully acted/directed movie. It was nip and tuck as to whether I was going to waste my time viewing a movie on the Lifetime Movie Network because of the horribly distracting commercials. Reading the earlier comments persuaded me to give it a shot. After all the worst that could happen would be that I might fall asleep during one of the boring yet lengthy bug spray ads. So why did I watch it? mainly because when IMDB gives a movie a "WEIGHTED AVERAGE" OF 5.8 WHO'S STATISTICAL AVERAGE was 7.3 It must be a sure hit.

I was totally delighted to have taken the time to view this movie, commercial pox and all. Helen Hunt continues to amaze me with her ability to take on tough roles adapting her core persona to fit each role.

The portrait she painted in this film of the tough yet perceptively human police officer was beautifully executed. When the scene calls for quick witted, timely delivered verbal intercourse, she can stand toe to toe with any actor. Yet she is adept at the delivery of volumes of emotional response without uttering a word relying only on facial expression and body language. Without the commercials, which by design kill the continuity of any good film, This would have been a real edge-of-the-seat nail-biter. I gave it a 9.0
