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
In the sequence where LL Cool J's character Gabe describes each character while Bobby (Eion Bailey) plays with a Rubik's Cube, Sara (Kathryn Morris) was originally filmed sitting outside sitting by the pool. Renny Harlin changed the film in post production to include her character. Only close-ups are shown of Morris in that sequence to hide the fact that she was not actually there. See more »

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.
