USA Today Full Review
Below Average Any sense of dread or drama in the story is dissipated by disjointed editing, overused stop-frame visuals bleached of color, comically familiar eerie music and numerous shots of cockeyed handwriting (à la Seven, which did it in an original way).

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

We collected 70 moviegoer opinions. The first thing I noticed is the lack of "Fantastic" opinions. This is a strong indication that this is not going to be a great movie. The second thing I noticed is the very high percentage of low to very low opinions. There were a few who enjoyed it very much but unfortunately they make up such a relatively small percentage of the total I would have to caution those considering seeing this movie. Chance aren't all that good that you will be one of the lucky few who truly enjoyed it.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE

When Dallas FBI Agent Thomas Mackelway (Aaron Eckhart) violates serial killer Raymond Starkey's civil rights during an unorthodox arrest, Starkey goes free and Mackelway is demoted to a remote branch of the agency in Albuquerque. His first day on the job, Mackelway investigates the murder of a traveling salesman Harold Speck, which turns out to be the first of three seemingly random killings. Or perhaps they are not random at all; the last to die is Mackelway's nemesis, Raymond Starkey.

The assignment consumes him. His past mistakes haunt him. His head throbs constantly as he tries to find the link between the victims that will lead him to their killer. The case becomes increasingly gruesome and patently personal. This does not go unnoticed by his unflappable partner Fran Kulok (Carrie-Anne Moss), who knows of Mackelway's past and the demons that afflict him. Like Mackelway, she becomes drawn into the labyrinth of chilling clues, all of which point to the enigmatic Benjamin O'Ryan (Ben Kingsley). O'Ryan clearly has a connection to the murders, a connection he flaunts; quite possibly, he may also harbor a sinister link to Mackelway.
