Did You Know?


Ted Dekker, author of the novel, was on set nearly every shooting day. In many cases he put three lines into the shot as an homage to the book cover. While some of these lines are drawn on walls and such, they also show up as objects (chalk, pencils, etc...). See more »


The film is set in America, but the taxi in one shot got a typical Polish taxi-symbol on the top. See more »


Jennifer Peters: You were only half-right, Sam. Slater isn't real. But honey, neither are you.

New rating category needed
2 January 2008 | by capncrustySee all my reviews

Possible spoilers...as if that could happen with this gobbler. Right off the bat, I had three problems: 1) the tough lady cop looks like a fashion model; 2) the hero lives in a converted warehouse, complete with a cage-type elevator; 3) the dog dies. All about as hackneyed as it gets. Added along the way: another tough, gun-toting fashion-model, a girlfriend this time; some pretty unlikely plot elements; a trio of REALLY overacting crazy people; and a "shocking ending" which bounces around so much that any surprise ends up falling flat--particularly with the whacky Mel Brooks' "don't nobody move" flourish. Mix it all up with a heavy dose of third-rate Christian pop-psychology (I know, I know, that's redundant), and you got "Thr3e". And you can have it.

Okay, that's a little harsh. There was some tension, some action, some effective atmosphere. So I give it 2 stars. I mean, it wasn't as bad as Paretti, but then Paretti's pretty BAD.

Speaking of which, how about we get a new Rating Category: CT, for "Christian Themed"? So that those of us who don't buy into that particular brand of hocus-pocus can make better informed choices about what and what not to watch.
