Storyline

Old-fashioned NYPD detective Charlie Daines, a grave long cancer sufferer, feels out of his depth when as serial killer posts his gruesomely imaginative murders, mostly on top managers, on Internet, first spotted by his couch-potato son Vinnie. The brass rather confides the high-profile case to 'nerds', champion of whom is wheelchair-stuck Adam Sotrel. Charlie systematically alienates everybody, family and colleagues, but finds an angle to approach the case. Written by KGF Vissers

Not bad, but many inconsistencies and logic errors..
26 June 2005 | by apfraatsSee all my reviews

It's watchable and sure keeps you attached to it when viewing it. It's a movie which can be seen from two viewpoints:

-1- The (dramatical) story of the main character, his live and whats happening to him. -2- Who's doing all the killing, showing it live on the internet and how will they get them or him/her and who's behind this all?

However there are many inconsistencies in the story and logic errors. That's ashame, if they weren't there I would rated it an 7 or even 8.

They are not all too disturbing if you just continue watching and don't make a big deal about these, but I can imagine some people would be irritated by them. I wasn't cause I just viewed it without too much thinking and all together it's very watchable.

OK, no special effects, please see Star Wars 3 or something. OK, no well thought out Drama. OK, no real action.

But altogether better than many other movies.....

Give it a try if you have the time.
