The plot holds a key to the whereabouts of the monstrous deviant, but the detectives have to unravel it quickly before more unsuspecting citizens become theater fodder for the unhinged madman.

Unfortunately, Fate brought me to see this garbage.
23 November 2004 | by (Escondido, CA) – See all my reviews

Being a fatalist at heart, I picked up this film at the local videostore to find one of the most boring movies to hit their shelves. I couldn't keep my attention to this almost at all. It reminds me of something on TV (just more drawn out). The director was trying to lead you along a police-investigation tale (with a solid premise and story, mind you), but I can't help but shudder at the fact that these movies are being released like this!

The sound and music were thrown-together clichés and the story added all of the religious BS from every other murder mystery of our time. Se7en makers should be thankful that David Fincher was working with them and not this guy, because that film was along the same lines as this one, in a way. I'm surprised that filmmakers still try to make cop-dramas like this. At least they should throw some abnormal camera-work or effects in there to spice it up a little. This just seems to exist instead of grabbing you from its videostore shelf, like I said.

A gave it a 2/10 for seeing Philip Michael Thomas again since his album and Miami Vice days, but otherwise, don't waste $3 on this at the videostore. You'll be disappointed if you're trying to find entertainment.
