Storyline

A serial killer, never caught, leaves clues and messages signed 'BSP' after quickly murdering each man but torturing his girl to death. His last case is an exception, the detective in charge finds his wife murdered while has pre-teen daughter had to watch. Thirty years later, she's still obsessed by the case, which drove her dad insane, and a police detective herself. When the whole cycle starts again, she gets convinced it's not BSP but an ambitious copy-cat, but he certainly outsmarts her every time. He also makes clear she's to be his final kill. Meanwhile she alienates even colleagues with her arrogance and obsession, finally to be suspended as the FBI takes over. Written by KGF Vissers

a movie about a serial killer(i liked it)
20 March 2007 | by See all my reviews

i liked this movie.i think Teri Polo is a good dramatic actress,at least judging by this movie.many people probably know her from the comedy "Meet the Parents"and its sequel"Meet the Fockers".she was good in those movies and she is equally talented in the dramatic arena.i won't say too much about the plot except it involves a serial killer.only 3 people have commented in total so far,and 2 of them clearly did not like it.everybody has their own opinions and ideas on what they consider a good movie.in my mind,this is a good movie.there's mystery,suspense and good acting.as for originality,most movies made today are not completely original so i don't think that should go against this movie.if you are looking to be entertained,this movie might work for you.or not.either way,as i said, liked it.i also have noticed Teri Polo's name in a few other dramatic movies and i think i will try some of them based on her performance in this movie.i think"Legacy of Fear" is a strong 7/10
