***SPOILERS***
This movie wasn't as good as I expected. The plot was weak and the serial killer was only a person who we saw once and know nothing about. Angelina Jolie didn't know how to act and I don't know what the cop saw in her. I didn't find her smart or anything special. If I would rate this movie out of 10 I would give it 7 out of 10 because they didn't show a lot about the killer. This movie would be for ages 14 and over because it had blood and killing stuff that's not good for the children. I think this movie is the best crime movie I've ever seen.

In my humble opinion, one of Angelina Jolie-Voight's finest performances!

It's okay. Rather predictable with huge plot holes, and anybody weaned on csi shows will wince at the lack of procedures. Jolie does a good job but doesn't really suit the role and the 'romance' with Denzel seems forced.

Hard to overlook the terrible plot holes and unbelievable plot.

Average crime drama. No chemistry between Washington and Jolie.

I thought the movie was good as a stand-alone title. However, as a "based on the book" movie, it was left wanting. There were too many changes to the story and characters. Watching it right after finishing the book turned out to be disappointing turn of events. If, however, you have no interest in reading the book, then the movie is quite good.

Coarse Language: There's a fair amount of profanity in this film. One of the reasons the movie is rated R is for the language.
