Storyline

When Dallas FBI Agent Thomas Mackelway violates serial killer Raymond Starkey's civil rights during an unorthodox arrest, Starkey goes free and Mackelway is demoted to a remote branch of the agency in Albuquerque. His first day on the job, Mackelway investigates the murder of a traveling salesman Harold Speck, which turns out to be the first of three seemingly random killings. Or perhaps they are not random at all; the last to die is Mackelway's nemesis, Raymond Starkey. The assignment consumes him. His past mistakes haunt him. His head throbs constantly as he tries to find the link between the victims that will lead him to their killer. The case becomes increasingly gruesome and patently personal. This does not go unnoticed by his unflappable partner Fran Kulok, who knows of Mackelway's past and the demons that afflict him. Like Mackelway, she becomes drawn into the labyrinth of chilling clues, all of which point to the enigmatic Benjamin O'Ryan. O'Ryan clearly has a connection to ... Written by Sujit R. Varma

Stylish Serial-Killer Movie
6 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I very much enjoyed the stylish way this serial-killer movie was presented. It also gets high points for keeping ones interest all the way.

Aaron Eckhart and Ben Kisnley are very good. Kinslgey, unfortunately, doesn't appear until over halfway through but made up for his lack of screen time with an intense performance. He's good at that sort of thing (see "Sexy Beast" for another recent example.)

The story, claimed to be a true one out of U.S. military files, is still a bit "suspect" to me, because I know Hollywood's hatred for the military, but this could be true. Perhaps there was just a project, but I am also skeptical of these ESP-type stories which the film world loves to promote, along with any kind of occult theory.

Nonetheless, this is a very interesting film, nicely shot and an underrated one since it never got much publicity. If you like crimes movies, this movie is one to check out.
