I was rooting for the Serial Killer in the end.
10 November 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Although we as viewers had to fill in many gaps this movie is well worth a watch. Made a refreshing change from the usual serial killer plot. In any other movie the outcomes of certain scenes would have been easily predictable. Basically it's about an aspect of the Bible that was never committed to written text and a man driven by love who seeks to correct a societal injustice which resulted in the death of someone very close to him. The serial killer was far removed from the usual Hollywood stereotype to the extent that in one of the final scenes the outcome was completely unpredictable while at the same time completely understandable. It reminded me ( loosely in the end ) of Medicine Man.
