A psychic doctor, John Clancy (Sir Anthony Hopkins), works with an F.B.I. Special Agent (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) in search of serial killer Charles Ambrose (Colin Farrell). After having lived in isolation for two years, since the death of his daughter, Clancy is asked by his friend Joe, an F.B.I. Special Agent to help him solve several murders committed by a serial killer. The problem is that Ambrose is also psychic, and far ahead of Clancy.
This is not the first time that Sir Anthony Hopkins played a doctor, who aided the F.B.I. in catching a serial killer. Dr. Hannibal Lecter helped Agent Starling in The Silence of the Lambs (1991), and Agent Graham in Red Dragon (2002). See more »
Charles is hit in the head with a glass and there is a reddish bruise where it left a mark. Shortly afterwards the bruise is completely gone. See more »
Loved it - ignore the naysayers who think too much
I didn't expect much from this film, owing to the reviews on here, but I really enjoyed it. Mind you, what's not to love when Anthony Hopkins is involved? Ostensibly just another serial killer film, but this is a serial killer with a difference and it actually raises a modern dilemma. The action is good, Anthony Hopkins is brilliant, as always, and there is a twist at the end. One reviewer said that the guy who directed/produced this film was churning out stuff like this in the 80s and gave it a low rating, but I am just an ordinary mortal who doesn't have a clue who directed/produced it and just enjoys a good story, and I thought it was a cracking film.
