Storyline

Addison Terrill (Howell), a Dallas attorney, comes home one night to find his wife brutally murdered with the words "We're even now" scrawled across the bedroom wall. The cops suspect he killed her, and now ADDISON must race through the underside of Dallas to find the only other suspect. His ally is a grudging ex-cop (Esposito) who knows what it takes to deliver justice. If they can overcome their differences, they'll be able to solve the case before anyone else gets hurt.

Trivia

Prior to filming, the producers flew C. Thomas Howell in town to play golf and see if he was right for the part. Decked out in sideburns and a 70's haircut for the part he was filming at the time, he never thought he would be cast. The producers gave him the starring role anyway. See more »

Tight little mystery
28 March 2004 | by (Sewanee, TN) – See all my reviews

A tight plot and solid performances set this film above the standard fare. As a lover of mystery I've become extremely adept at finding the killer quickly. Well not the case here. I was guessing right up until the end. Enough red herrings to stock a fish market, and I loved every minute of it. Taking Lives tries to bring the mystery that A Killer Within delivers. So if you want a good mystery check it out.
