Lance Henriksen is the only reason to watch this .............
10 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Lance Henriksen gives a strong performance in what is otherwise a very scrambled movie. Sure you get a couple sex scenes with Joan Severance, but unfortunately they are tied together with a pseudo seduction that is beyond boring. Henriksen's intriguing character driving his red Viper is more interesting than the anemic script. My biggest objection to "Profile for Murder" is that the film definitely takes liberties with the audience as far as believability is concerned, and the ending tries for twists and turns, that come out of nowhere. This is not one of Lance Henriksen's better movies, but it is a watchable Henriksen performance. - MERK
