Illeana (Jolie) almost always conducts a search with her trigger finger wrapped around the grip. The trigger finger moves to straight along the gun, but never seems to be at least in the trigger guard. See more »
At the end in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, a road sign shows routes 322 and 22. Routes 22 and 322 are both US routes, not Pennsylvania routes, and they do not go through Carlisle. See more »
What could have been: a serious, scary meditation on the issue of identity, and what someone would do in order to change themselves in the eyes of society.
What this movie is: a callow piece of crap, with no innovation or style whatsoever. This is a retarded "Seven," if you get my drift.
This movie is bad.
Rather than focus on an interesting idea (i.e., a serial killer that takes the identity of others), this film chooses to be about Angelina Jolie looking sexy and thus looses any sort of appeal/suspense value that it might have. I was bored throughout the entire experience.
Ethan Hawke is either terrible or brilliant, depending on your point of view. I can't tell you why without giving something away. Please just stay away from this film for your own sake.
