Lewis Hicks (Cuba Gooding Jr.) is a reporter and journalist specializing in writing about the crime of murder. Instead of writing his next story, Lewis becomes the story when his new girlfriend is sadistically murdered, and he is the only suspect. Lewis investigates the murder himself and finds the killer's journal with his past victims and a death list of his future prey. Lewis believes that he is the only person who can stop the killer before time runs out for his next victim. Written by Douglas Young (the-movie-guy)

The music is so wrong, almost made me turn it off.
21 January 2011 | by (Southern England) – See all my reviews

I suppose it's cheap MIDI music but its application is so wrong, didn't anyone tell them? The detective is interviewing Hicks and they are playing stringy music? Imagine two people creeping around a dark building hunting each other with guns trying to be as quiet as possible, that is when they'd play this stringy music, not when a detective is interviewing Hicks. Unfortunately it is like this all the way through the movie and there aren't many scenes without music though it is such a relief when they do come along.

Hicks is getting his gun out of his locked box, a CRASH of cymbals as he loads the magazine.... so wrong.

The elements in this movie could have gone towards something better but they B-movied it.

Please, if in doubt about what music to play where then remember, less is better.

Hicks meets the orphan kid, there is no music until Hicks asks 'Hey buddy how old are ya?' and the kid replies 'what the f**k you want Mr?' then Bummmmmm... super dramatic bass-line and stringy tinkly piano music ... so wrong.
