This thriller isn't very thrilling, with a very predictable plot and subpar dialogue. Some of the scenes had me scratching my head and wondering if the director was even present while filming. Bruce Willis phones in a few lines, the main cop character played by Emile Hirsch was like a two-dimensional cutout of what someone apparently thought a Florida State Police Officer should be like, and Megan Fox, with at least some amount of screen presence, was left holding the bag, with forgettable lines and almost no effort at character development. Even the bad guy, played by Lukus Haas, was uninteresting and just a pale stereotype taken from hundreds of other serial killer films. The attempt to develop a dark and gritty mood just seemed superficial.
And what was up with using Dire Straights' "Brothers in Arms" song, written about the Falklands War, as the main musical backdrop? A great tune but didn't fit the scenes at all.
