so-so cold case profiler cop movie
2 December 2004 | by FieCrierSee all my reviews

Yawn. A young girl comes across a crime scene where LAPD have discovered a dead woman dressed as a ballerina hanging over a hurricane fence topped with razor wire right by their station. Blood is still dripping from her.

Twenty years later, the young girl is now an FBI profiler, who is transferring to that station as a Sergeant to work in their Special Investigations Unit. The SIU is where all the bad cases are transferred, the ones the LAPD as a whole doesn't want to be blamed for not solving. SIU apparently also covers cold cases. She helps with a home invasion/burglar case, but is mainly concerned with reopening the ballerina murder case. She enlists the help of a reporter who had covered it, and some of the SIU cops.

This movie isn't terrible, but nothing struck me as too terribly interesting either. The murderer for me was pretty predictable. Oh well.
