A psychic doctor, John Clancy (Anthony Hopkins), works with an FBI special agent (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) in search of serial killer Charles Ambrose (Colin Farrell).[5] After having lived in isolation for two years, since the death of his daughter, Clancy is asked by his friend Joe, an FBI special agent to help him solve several murders committed by a serial killer. The problem is that Ambrose is also psychic, and far ahead of Clancy.

You expect something small, but then get something much better.

If we could see people's future, I never would have seen this film being so deep.

Solace focuses on a closed off psychic who helps to find a serial killer, but soon becomes more important to the case than he knows. Anthony Hopkins and Colin Farrell star in this mystery thriller to wow the audience on life and moral behaviour.

The film gives thrills, action, suspense, and deep thinking to keep the audience 100% focused. We view brilliant camera work and interesting editing sequences to dazzle our eyes. Though I do not promise this film to be the utter best, but completely enjoyable, and a film to spread the word around about.

The film provides plenty of depth to the characters, and immediately put the audience on their side. Anthony Hopkins is a clever, caring, and intelligent character that gives the film the performance it needed, along with an emotional story as well. However the choice of Colin Farrell for the psychotic free believer, serial killer may not be the perfect decision. Granted Farrell provides plenty of depth and character in his performance, especially presenting great characterisation compared to previous performances, I personally did not see Farrell as the ideal actor for this role.

I give this film a 7/10, providing you with much more then you first think. This is a film for thrill seekers, and viewers who like to think, but also one to be discussed.
