Great obsessive Richard Gere in less than impressive movie
17 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

Erroll Babbage (Richard Gere) works at the Department of Public Safety tirelessly rigorously checking on sex offenders. He is close to retirement and forced to train his young replacement Allison Lowry (Claire Danes). She tries to be sympathetic to Viola Frye (KaDee Strickland) who spins a sob story whereas Erroll takes justice into his own hands. Then 17 years old Harriet Wells turns up missing, and Erroll is given a clue. The cops and everybody else dismisses his suspicion that it's one of his charge.

Richard Gere plays a great obsessive dark personality. Claire Danes is a great foil as the slight naive newbie. Together this duo has great chemistry. Hong Kong director Wai-Keung Lau doesn't have quite the dark style for this subject matter. It would have been great with a darker director like David Fincher. The movie doesn't have the needed thrills or tension.
