Detective John Prudhomme, a Cajun transplanted to Chicago, is assigned to investigate the savage murder of a man who has bled to death from a severed arm. A message, "He Is Coming", written in blood on the victim's window is a dark, forboding clue of his task. After two more victims with missing body parts are discovered, Prudhomme realizes he is on the trail of a serial killer who is using the missing body parts to reconstruct the body of Christ...just in time for Easter. As Prudhomme struggles to catch the zealot-murderer, he is haunted by the death of his son, his continued estrangement from his wife, and his wavering faith in God. Written by

Do you have any idea how difficult it is to get away with murder? There are fifty ways to fuck up a crime and if you can think of twenty of them, you're a genius. So far, this guy is batting a thousand.

Christopher Lambert is a cajun cop in Chicago trying to solve the the crime of an insane psycho serial killer. Eventually it becomes a story of life and death with the pursuit of the killer and the personal involvement of cop John Prudhomme (Lambert).
You can really expect what happens next and there are scenes where you are able to see where the inspiration came from. First off, there's the story and the tagline. It's been seen and heard about before. The only thing that makes this movie any different from what you already know is the fast-moving camera shots. It makes the movie look like a documentary, and something out of one of the Danish dogma movies (The Celebration, The Idiots). The camera movements make it more realistic, yes, but too fast-paced at some points, which is annoying and gives you a headache, if you're not focused. With a slower rhythm to it it could have been a good movie. Especially with Lambert who starred in far better movies.
