Joe Mondragon, a veteran cop who gets things done, forms an unlikely partnership with Samantha Baines. She is attached to Police Intelligence Division and feels more comfortable handling a computer than a gun. Samantha's computer skills are needed to help hack into and track two serial killers who get their victims from Internet Chat Rooms. The plan goes horribly wrong and in a fire fight between Samantha and Joe, and the two killers, Joe is killed when Samantha is unable to make herself fire her weapon at the two serial killers. Samantha feels guilty and responsible. With the help of her new friend Mimi, and the Head of Homicide, Samantha reinvents herself and avenges Joe after a relentless chase of the killers. Written by
A pair of serial killers is stalking a city via the Internet chat rooms. A veteran cop teams up with a desk jockey to try and track down the killers before the body count gets any higher. Low budget thriller is okay at best. Give the filmmakers points for sticking it out and getting the job done, but unfortunately the film is undercut by a couple of factors. First there are lots uneven performances. Some of the actors play it straight, some of the actors (the killers) seem to over act at times and some just can't act. There is also a misplaced sense of style that has the filmmakers trying to do something different visually (the arrangement of the bodies, some of what the killers wear) but failing to make it work. The result is the film comes off as a glorified home movie instead of something a paying audience would want to see. It's the sort of thing that just sort of misses being worth trying. I'd pass.
