The film starts in the early 1980s. Young Martin Asher took a bus for Canada. He meets another teen on the bus, Matt Soulsby. When the bus broke down they decided to rent a car and drive to Seattle. On the road the car gets a flat tire, and Matt starts changing the tire. Martin comments on how he and Matt are about the same height, and in that moment he quickly pushes Matt in the way of an oncoming truck causing a huge accident where Matt and the driver both die. He took Matt's guitar and left singing like Matt did. Twenty years later, an FBI profiler, Illeana Scott comes to Canada to help hunt down the now serial killer Martin Asher who killed multiple men and lived by their identities. Martin's mother claims that she saw Martin in Quebec city and she tells the police that Martin is evil. The police also has an eyewitness James Costa who saw Asher kill his last victim...Written by
One of the Montreal police officers reassures Costa that the serial killer "won't get within 50 yards of you". While Canada is officially metric, its proximity to the U.S. as well as stubbornness among older generations means that in several instances old imperial measurements are still used. Many people still use feet and inches instead of meters for height, and many Canadians still refer to yards instead of meters for distance. See more »

Average but passable French-Canadian -American thriller with a great cast
This is an acceptable suspense movie full of intrigue , thrills , action , twists and turns . This film is made for Angelina Jolie , she is in each shot. She's beautiful, she plays rightly, she's wonderful .
Howewer , the other main character Ethan Hawke is regularly played , his performance is overdone and warped.
The support cast is featured by French actors : Oliver Martinez who's doing a American curriculum . Furthermore, Tcheky Karyo also has a broad career American ,generally in secondary roles.
Here is also Jean Hughes Anglade who only has French films , but giving a short acting , where he misinterprets a minor role.
Kiefer Sutherland, as always, plays a nasty ,wicked,and evil person. Will he be the killer? .
The picture is professionally directed by D.J. Caruso . He is a good craftsman whose films often have intense car crashes such as Disturbia (2007), and The Eagle eye (2008) and this Taking lives (2004) .
Rating : Acceptable, only for Jolie's fans.
