David Allen Griffin is a cool killer- time and time again, he chooses a female victim, studies her for weeks till he knows her routine to the smallest detail, makes meticulous preparations using his forensic knowledge to gain entry when she's quite alone, subdues her and administers a long, torturous death. Joel Campbell got so frustrated by his failure to capture Griffin in Los Angeles, that he quit the FBI, moved to Chicago, and remains in psychiatric therapy, unable to function normally. Then he realizes, when opening his mail very late, that a new murder victim is Griffin's, and the killer sent him pictures of her. Campbell reports this to the police, but is unwilling to join them in the search, suggesting Griffin is too slick and clever; yet he won't get out of it that easily.Written by
Reeves has stated that he was not interested in the script but was forced into doing the film when his assistant Brian forged his signature on a contract. He performed the role rather than get involved in a lengthy legal battle. He was contractually prevented from disclosing this until 12 months after the film's US release See more »
When Griffin shows Campbell Dr. Beilman's blood-smeared business card in the cemetery scene, his fingers obscure the "P" in her first name as he's shown holding the card from a distance. Then the shot switches to a close-up, and suddenly Griffin's fingers are holding the card in a different position so that her entire name can be read. See more »
It's never quite that easy. You go through the door, and they're never just sitting there waiting for you with a welcoming smile on their face. best you can do is hope they fuck up and do what you can to be there when they do.
Dr. Polly Beilman:
And then blame yourself for the killings?
Oh, no. I blame the asshole who did them.

The hero confides in a therapist, seeking help, but this act catches the attention of the killer. She becomes the chess game's queen, and her life or death will fall to the hero. But for him to save her, he may have to sacrifice himself, and the villain is ready for him.
A masterpiece of cat and mouse, good versus evil is depicted in this film. The hero and villain are truly defined by two driven actors,James Spader and Keanu Reeves, and with every twist and turn, their characters pull you further into their struggle to win over the other. And the music captures every moment of this movie. The ending delivers closure to the storyline but leaves you wondering, "Will good triumph over evil, or will the hero fall? Time's up."
