A thriller involving an ongoing unsolved mystery in Alaska, where one town has seen an extraordinary number of unexplained disappearances during the past 40 years and there are accusations of a federal cover up.
The elementary school teacher Anna Marchant lives with her boyfriend Bryce in a nice apartment and every now and then she meets her best friends Francine and Nina to drink and talk. When Anna is crossing a bridge to meet Bryce, she sees an infamous serial-killer killing a woman. Anna runs but she is attacked by the killer and she falls off the bridge and hits her head. Anna stays in coma for a week and when she awakes, she learns that she has brain damage followed by Prosopagnosia, a disorder of face perception where the ability to recognize faces is impaired, while the ability to recognize other objects may be relatively intact. The police detective Sam Kerrest unsuccessfully tries to force Anna to remember the face of the serial-killer. Now the serial-killer knows that Anna has seen his face, but she is incapable of even recognizing Bryce and her close friends. Written by

A pretty original and tense thriller that shows off more of Jovovich's improving acting. Worth watching. I say B+
"He's not stupid enough to go after the one person who can recognize him, right?" After a night of drinking with her friends Anna (Jovovich)decides to walk home alone. While walking she sees a murder take place and is attacked by the "Tear-Jerked Jack" serial killer. After falling off a bridge she wakes up as the lone survivor. She also wakes up with a disease called face-blindness, a condition which affects you from recognizing any faces...even your own. Lately it seems like the lower budget movies are much better then the big blockbusters. This one is no exception. While this movie started to repeat itself to the point of being annoying it was still tense and keeps you interested and watching through out. Jovovich is becoming a very good actress and she continues to build upon what she did in "Stone". A pretty original idea that if it weren't for the repetition of the problem would have been an excellent movie. That said even with the repeating this is still a very good movie that is very much worth seeing. Overall, a surprisingly good and tense thriller that deserves more of an audience that it will get. I give it a B+.
Would I watch again? - I might, just to see if I can catch the clues.
