Trivia

The name of all three murdered women are allusions to the figure of Jesus Christ: Gotteskind (Marie Gotteskind, played by Marielle Heller, meaning "Child of God" as pointed out by TJ (Astro); Andersen (Leila Andersen, played by Laura Birn), meaning "Son of Man"; and Kristo (Carrie Kristo, played by Razane Jammal), from which the title "Christ" derives.

Goofs

(at around 6 mins) The year jumps from 1991 to 1999. As soon as the year changes to 1999 Scudder is sitting in the diner reading the Daily News. However, the back page of the newspaper is a story about a Seton Hall Pirates basketball game from 1991 (the front page looks to be era correct as there is a story about Y2K). See more »

Intense, Enjoyable, Old-fashioned and Watchable Psycho-thriller
20 September 2014 | by (Malaysia) – See all my reviews

Doubting whether audiences do really know the existence of this crime film due to poor marketing, Liam Neeson's name alone however has no problem at all to draw a solid walk-ins, and surprisingly it turns out to be a compelling story compared to his previous roles. Unlike the other same genre, this does not filled with action-packed scenes, but progresses steadily and methodically in details just like a real investigation in daily life, making it appears to be a chilling drama thriller. Not much of plot twists, but certain creepy moments with solid scores, riveting performance from the hero himself and the supporting casts, nasty and eerie crime heavily based on drugs and alcohol, the surprisingly "muted" ending style are more than enough to guarantee an intense, enjoyable, old-fashioned and watchable psycho- thriller.
