On a remote island, the FBI has a training program for their psychological profiling division, called "Mindhunters", used to track down serial killers. The training goes horribly wrong, however, when a group of seven young agents discover that one of them is a serial killer, and is setting about slaying the others. Can the few that are left figure out who the killer is in time? Written by austin4577@aol.com

Trivia

The Investigative Support Unit ("Mindhunters" is slang for the ISU) is the FBI's special force that has assisted state and local police in cracking some of the United States' most notorious serial murder cases. Mindhunters specialize in understanding and profiling the chemistry and mechanical workings of the brain in these serial criminals. Mindhunters train in a multidisciplinary capacity, including highly demanding field training and research of such murderers as Charles Manson and David Berkowitz (the Son of Sam). See more »

Not bad at all
30 July 2004 | by (Antwerpen, Belgium) – See all my reviews

I don't want to give away too much about the story, so I'll stick to the basics.

A small group of FBI-serial killer experts are in a training program. Val Kilmer is the trainer, an eccentric character named Harris who runs the show in his own way. The whole idea is putting them in situations where they are likely to mess up, so that they will think twice before acting to quickly or jumping to the wrong conclusions in real life.

The idea of this last exercise is to isolate the group on a deserted island, so they can focus on "profiling" a killer without any help from forensics, witnesses and so forth. Things take a very unexpected turn when one of the team gets killed.

It would seem that instead of an exercise they are faced with the real thing : Profiling and identifying a killer before he kills all of them. Is the killer an outsider or someone from within their team ?

---------

Stuck on an island, people ending up dead one after another... Yes, there is a more than a dash of Agatha Christie there. But there are plenty of interesting add-ons to this Ten Little Indians clone. The acting is pretty decent, although in my opinion LL Cool J was a little too cool to be convincing (some of lines really are over-the-top...) and maybe Miss Valesquez should limit herself to non-speaking parts as her English sounds very laboured.

Don't go in expecting a masterpiece, just enjoy the ride. This movie is a fun high-adrenaline action movie /thriller. I give it 8/10
