Trivia

The nine time for Al Pacino playing the role of a police detective after Righteous Kill (2008), The Son of No One (2011), Insomnia (2002), Heat (1995), Sea of Love (1989), Cruising (1980) and, of course, Serpico (1973), 88 minutes ( 2007 ) See more »

Goofs

When Det. Archer took the watch off the 2nd victim at the Coroner's office and handed it to the Coroner. He asked the Coroner to dust it for prints. That would be the job of the Police forensics at the crime scene. They also would have bagged it and entered it into evidence way before the Coroner even got the body. See more »

Hollywood Is The Hangman...They're Murdering The Genre
26 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

The deal here is expectations. Al Pacino playing a crusty cop practically being forced out of retirement by a serial killer as well as his old fellow officer with a connection to the officer's murdered wife. This could be a taught thriller. Well, forget about taut and lower the thrills. Hollywood mediocrity and bombast has spit out another wannabe "7" that goes south. The central thread of the crimes is the use of the hangman game by a daily kill. Don't ask how the perp can possibly string his murders together with intricate staging in such a compact time frame. This fact is suppose to be horrendously creepy and sinister one is to suppose? It comes off quite silly. Because the cops can't keep our attention even with Pacino the viewer gets the device of a young journalist who is signed-off to do a story about their dedicated under-appreciated jobs. Conveniently this reporter gets in just in time for The Hangman. Another layer of Hollywood that doesn't gel with a real crime story. So, the movie feels absolutely contrived and fake. Pacino is a waste as his laid back style doesn't add the element it's going for. The co-lead, Detective Ruiney as played by Karl Urban, barely registers even in comparison to Pacino's pedestrian Detective Archer. And as for the reporter Davies played by Brittany Snow it's so thrown in to the stew it comes off as pandering pure and simple. Hangman dashed all expectations for a return to some form for Pacino as it is a lame story with blah performances. Maybe because I'm stubborn I watched it to the end because I can't think of any other excuse?
