Storyline

When Dallas FBI Agent Thomas Mackelway violates serial killer Raymond Starkey's civil rights during an unorthodox arrest, Starkey goes free and Mackelway is demoted to a remote branch of the agency in Albuquerque. His first day on the job, Mackelway investigates the murder of traveling salesman Harold Speck, which turns out to be the first of three seemingly random killings. Perhaps they are not random at all. The last to die is Mackelway's nemesis, Raymond Starkey. The assignment consumes him, his past mistakes haunt him, and his head throbs constantly as he tries to find the link between the victims that will lead him to their killer while the case becomes increasingly gruesome and patently personal. This does not go unnoticed by his unflappable partner Fran Kulok, who knows of Mackelway's past and the demons that afflict him. Like Mackelway, she becomes drawn into the labyrinth of chilling clues, all of which point to the enigmatic Benjamin O'Ryan. O'Ryan clearly has a connection ... Written by Sujit R. Varma

As the movie plot developed, so did my enjoyment...
4 June 2005 | by See all my reviews

This movie started off pretty slowly but if you are of those people who don't mind waiting for a good ending to a good psychological thriller, this movie is for you! I read a few comments and one said it was "OK" and when I reached the climax of the movie, I said to myself "What the heck?! Only OK?". I was on the edge of my seat for the last 15 minutes of the movie and everything all came together quite nicely. If I were to compare it to any other movies I would say that this is "Se7en" mixed with a little "Memento" for the twists and turns in a dark thriller-type movie. I don't know if I would watch it again, but that is solely for the fact that I know what happens and finding out the "truth" was the culminating event that made this movie worth watching.
