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 often makes the crucial difference between catching a killer and sending a dead-end case to the cold file. 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.

Sean, DURBAN. 3 September 2004

There seems to be two versions out for this movie. The theatrical version and an unrated version which I've heard is much better. I got to watch the theatrical version and even though there were some deleted scenes, I doubt those could be the ones included on the unrated disc.

The first 10 minutes of the movie was really interesting and kept me engaged the whole time. Same goes for the last 10 to 15 minutes of the movie. The hour that was left was nothing special...just same old "trying to track the killer" stuff. I'm a bit disappointed with the mid section because I think they could have made this a much better and more interesting movie, as the whole concept of the film itself is really interesting. The love angle in the movie did not bother as much as most critics overseas complained about. I could see why it was necessary.
As for the acting, I thought the supporting cast was much better than the main actors. Angelina's lips were doing a good job (they can make a whole movie just about her lips, I would watch it). Ethan Hawke started to annoy me a little bit. But the best of the rest had to be the wise ass tough guy French detective played by Oliver Martinez (bad guy from Swat and French guy in Unfaithful). He should have played a bigger role. As for Kiefer Sutherland....well, I think he has about 3 to 5 minutes of screen time.

Overall I did enjoy the film and it did keep me engaged at times. While watching the movie I couldn't help but notice flashbacks from Seven (opening credits, crashing the door). One or two good boo-scares in there as well. Nothing really new to add to the genre but worth a look.
