Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average As far as thrillers go, "Taking Lives" exists on a level somewhere above that of the run-of-the-mill, routine film that believes unexpected (and often nonsensical) twists are the only way to hold an audience's attention. On the other hand, in large part because of its sub-par resolution, it fails to attain the plateau inhabited by superior efforts.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good "Taking Lives" is an effective thriller, on its modest but stylish level. (director D.J. Carusohe) understands that a certain genre of thriller depends more upon style and tone than upon plot; it doesn't matter if you believe it walking out, as long as you were intrigued while it was happening.

USA Today Full Review
Poor This anticlimactic grind is hardly salvaged by the kind of twist ending that'll have you turning to your date and saying, "Who do you think will make the Final Four?" For those who have better things to do (reading Proust, scraping burger residue off the backyard grill), the trouble with indulging "Taking Lives" is that it's taking your time.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
A top FBI profiler, Special Agent Illeana Scott (Academy Award-winner ANGELINA JOLIE) doesn't rely on traditional crime-solving techniques to unravel the mysteries of a murderous mind. Her intuitive, unconventional approach is often the only way to unlock the identities of the killers for the police to capture.

When Montreal detectives handling a local homicide investigation reluctantly ask for an outsider's help to get inside the head of a cunning serial killer, Agent Scott joins the case. With meticulous insight, she theorizes that the chameleon-like killer is "life-jacking” – assuming the lives and identities of his victims.

As the pressure mounts to catch the elusive murderer, Agent Scott's unorthodox methods alienate her from a territorial police team that feels threatened by her uncanny abilities. Her seemingly cold demeanor belies an unparalleled passion for her work, and she's at her best when she's working alone. But when an unexpected attraction sparks a complicated romantic entanglement, the consummate specialist begins to doubt her finely honed instincts.

Alone in an unfamiliar city with no one she can trust, Agent Scott suddenly finds herself on a twisted and terrifying journey, surrounded by suspects in a case that has become chillingly personal.
