Jeremy Haft's The Crimson Code, 13 June 2002
Author: Charles Tatum from North Dakota

I admit I liked the basic idea of this film. What if an FBI agent

stumbled across some cases of serial killers getting murdered by

another serial killer, a serial killer killer? Cool, and something

different to throw into the serial killer film subgenre. Well, we can

always hope.

Patrick Muldoon, looking like the theoretical lovechild of David

Duchovny and Jason Patric, plays the young FBI agent who works

in the serial killer unit. He partners with Cathy Moriarty, and they

work for Tim Thomerson, in another of a long line of dramatic roles

he has taken lately (I remember when he was a comedian).

Muldoon discovers a bunch of serial killers who are dead or

stopped killing, and he goes to wheelchair-bound mentor Fred

Ward, who has about six scenes and never leaves his living room.

Muldoon begins to suspect Thomerson and elite squad (the "Red

Team") of killing serial killers, and then he witnesses a pedophile

get the Red Team treatment (he is thrown off a bridge). This

throws a monkey wrench into his investigation of C. Thomas

Howell, who shaved his head, grew a goatee, and wears wire

rimmed glasses, all trying to make you forget he was in "Soul Man"

(I haven't forgotten). Howell is a serial killer who cuts the tongues

out of young girls' mouths (maybe to stop them from asking him

what Tom Cruise was REALLY like on the set of "The Outsiders.")

Thomerson traps Muldoon and Howell in a certain fiery death trap,

just so they can escape and have their revenge on Thomerson

and Moriarty, who we figure out is part of the Red Team about

three days before Muldoon does. This leads to a snowy finale at

Muldoon's house, and ho-hum action blows up all over the place.

Neat basic idea, but I felt cheated and patronized by the film

makers. At one point, Thomerson takes Howell's watch before

leaving him to die. Now, we have seen another Thomerson victim

without a watch, and we see Thomerson take the pedophile's

watch, and everyone talks about how serial killers take trophies

from their victims, so naturally Thomerson is taking timepieces as

trophies of his serial killer victims...but we still need Muldoon to tell

Howell that, just in case one person out in the audience shrieks

"hey, what's the deal with the watches?" Also, the Red Team sets

up Muldoon with fake notes from Howell. Muldoon's home is wired

to an alarm. Someone from the Red Team gets in, leaves the fake

message for Muldoon, and does not set off the alarm. Later, when

two Red Team members sneak into Muldoon's house to kill him,

they set off the alarm. Worse still, when one of the fake notes gives

Muldoon an address where Howell is supposedly killing a woman

as we speak, Muldoon goes flying over there alone, gun drawn, not

stopping long enough to remember all that great training Fred

Ward taught him. How many serial killers give out addresses to

the FBI, in case they might want to prevent another killing? The

film's original title, "Red Team," and the video title give away the

fact that the Red Team is involved in killing serial killers, thereby

negating any suspense the film had planned. The final shot

involving the FBI director tries to be very droll and ironic, but it is

just a weak ending to a weak film. I cannot recommend "The

Crimson Code."

This is rated (R) for physical violence, gun violence, gore, profanity,

and adult situations.
