Storyline

Alaska Trooper Jack Holcombe believes Robert Hansen is a serial killer who abducts young girls, tortures and sexually assaults them, then kills them. But Holcombe doesn't have enough evidence to get a search warrant for Hansen's premises. Holcombe knows that one victim, Cyndy Paulsen, somehow survived, so he decides to seek her help, but he finds that she's now a junkie with trust issues. Holcombe has to earn her trust; meanwhile, Hansen is still hunting and killing girls. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Cages most subtle role
24 August 2013 | by (Brisbane,Australia) – See all my reviews

Let me start by saying I'm am a huge nic cage fan,always have been.Ill be the first to say hes made some bad movies that would have been unwatchable if he wasn't in them. Now this movie is not exceptional and is nowhere near cages best role,but it is his moss subtle.He plays his character well and so does Cusack.Hudgens who I've never really seen much off plays her part in this movie quite well. Nothing new here just a good old fashion good guy bad guy collect evidence movie. I recommend this movie to fans of cage and especially to fans of Cusack who plays a great villain.

7 outta you know what.Give it ago has a great ending imho.
