MINDHUNTERS may not offer anything that new to the serial killer genre but what it does do is entertain its audience.
Despite watching and knowing that "everyone is a suspect" and being very familiar with the genre myself, I still had a hard time trying to pin down who is responsible for the films gruesome murders as it rolls along. Forget the award recognition that everyone likes to talk about around this time of year, MINDHUNTERS is a fast paced, thrill ride stuffed with talented actors (including Val Kilmer, Christian Slater, and Jonny Lee Miller) that could easily put director Renny Harlin back on the map after the catastrophe that was DRIVEN. So get some popcorn, sit down, and play the game of who is the killer. Trust me, you'll have a good time.
