A murder inside the Louvre and clues in Da Vinci paintings lead to the discovery of a religious mystery protected by a secret society for two thousand years -- which could shake the foundations of Christianity.
A slick New York publicist who picks up a ringing receiver in a phone booth is told that if he hangs up, he'll be killed... and the little red light from a laser rifle sight is proof that the caller isn't kidding. Written by

The rifle on the tripod in the sniper's window is an Accuracy International Rifle. Accuracy International is a British firm that manufactures dedicated sniper weapons as opposed to offering modified hunting rifles like many other companies. The price of the setup in the movie ranges from $6000.00-$9000.00 dollars depending on what kind of scope was mounted. See more »
The caller's intent to frame Stu for the murder of the pimp is flawed in several ways. Firstly, Stu would have had no gunshot residue on his hand. Second, hollow-point bullets do not fragment on impact, but flatten out to achieve a larger wound, so there would've been a bullet left behind. Third, when investigating deaths by gunshots, the investigator fires comparison bullets to help match the bullet found in the victim or the wound caused by the bullet. Fourth, the entrance wound would show that the pimp was shot from behind, but when he was struggling with Stu they were face to face, meaning Stu couldn't have possibly shot him in the back from that position.

Stu, you didn't tell your wife the truth, you're cheating.
I'm not cheating on Kelly, I never have!
Oh, then what do you call it?
Look, you're a guy. Sometimes you wanna know it's a possibility, all right? You know it's like having a beautiful home, but you still dream of that quick vacation down there, you know, some nice hotel, a great view, I don't know, maybe a pool. But it's a just a fantasy because you'll never really leave home! Do you hear what I'm saying?
Kelly is a home and ...

Stu Shepard (Colin Farrell) uses a pay phone to call his mistress (Katie Holmes) and after he hung up the phone rings. He picks it up, of course, and learns that there is a sniper on the other side of the line. When he hangs up the sniper will shoot him, so he is told. Before he entered the booth we saw Stu talking on his cell phone as a PR-man, constantly lying to people. The sniper has observed Stu and thinks he deserves to die.
When the sniper demonstrates he is real by shooting a pimp near the booth the police arrives and thinks Stu is the shooter. Capt. Ramey (Forest Whitaker) slowly understands things are not as they seem.
Colin Farrell who is in almost every scene is great. First he looks so confident and slowly he becomes more and more desperate. The voice of the sniper (Kiefer Sutherland) is also perfect for the movie. It sounds calm but creepy, like a dangerous man who knows what he is doing.
The movie is not very long and here that is a very good thing. Scenes are not dragged to make the movie as long as most movies and therefor it doesn't get boring. It kept me on the edge of my seat. A very good thriller.
