Worth Your Time.
Verified purchase
Anthony Hopkins getting older but still able to hold his own. Colin Farrell lovely as always and Jeffrey Dean Morgan with dimples and acting skills for days. This movie is worth your time. Do not let the negative or lukewarm reviews stop you from watching this movie. It did what a movie was supposed to do, it entertained me and took my mind off the real horrors going on today. I enjoyed the story and the telling.

Ignore all the "NOT LIKE.... movie" Great movie FOR MANY REASONS
Verified purchase
Although others are reacting negatively to this film, I found it to be excellent. It has numerous plot twists and also significant moral undertones. I find it unfair to expect ALL movies starring Sir Anthony Hopkins to be a "Silence of the Lambs." Which is what I see across so many recent reviews of his movies. This movie is excellent on it's own due to the writing, acting, subplots and each actors portrayal. I found it well worth the rental and will watch it again as I am wondering what foreshadowing I missed. Excellent on many levels, much like a well written novel.

Legalized murder
Verified purchase
The pacing and visual display of information is pretty textbook. As far as predicting what was going to happen I didn't need clairvoyance. Hopkins made the whole thing worthwhile, but I had to knock it down one more star because of the typical hollywood message that every movie has now. This one is to steer the hearts and minds of people to accept and legalize mercy killings. However, I work in a hospital and deal with death and pain regularly. The answer is not to kill people prematurely. Humanity does not have the wisdom and never will to make that call.

Great Movie!
Verified purchase
I really enjoyed this movie. I don't think that I have ever watched an Anthony Hopkins movie that I did not like! There were some interesting plot twists throughout the movie. In the movie, Anthony Hopkins is a retired FBI agent with psychic abilities. A friend in the FBI is working a case that he cannot figure out so he calls upon Hopkins to assist. Hopkins realizes that he has met his match when he sees that the person they are hunting has abilities similar to his, but much stronger. The only complaint that I have (and it is slight) is that the movie could have done without the sex scenes, as I didn't feel that they added any depth to the movie. Otherwise, I loved everything about the movie.

Like Well Acted Action Movies with a Good Plot and a Few Twists? This is a Hidden Gem.
Verified purchase
I came across this film as one of the Amazon Prime Recommended Movies. Like some others who reviewed it, I read the Amazon plot summary and it just didn't sound that interesting. So I passed on watching it several times. Then I saw it as one of the movies others watched under the Jack Reacher "Never Go Back". Now I'm interested because thats the kind of I movie that I like. Fast paced, a lot of action, interesting characters, well acted and a good story line. So I decided to watch it. Sometimes I'll start a movie and it just seems boring. However, as the plot unfolded I had a feeling that this would be good and it was.

Not only is Anthony Hopkins is one of the main story characters, he is also the executive producer, which should make you interested as well. The cast is great. The movie is well acted and directed and the story keeps you interested with its plot twists. If I understand correctly, this movie was never released in theaters, which is a shame as it would in my opinion be one to recommended to your friends.

Brilliant movie! Parapsychology is the study of paranormal and psychic phenomena. Although many doubt these human abilities, I strongly believe that there are those with gifted mindsets who have powerful sensing abilities. Senses that go beyond one's sixth sense! In my opinion, all humans have the ability to truly connect with this world and thereby heighten their ability to sense what cannot be viewed with the naked eye. Just like air particles, earth's magnetic fields, or even pathogens in the atmosphere, there are atoms that cannot be seen with the naked eye. I empathize with those who have such insight into other people's pain and suffering. To be able to feel that level of intensity over and over, every day and every hour, by itself is traumatizing. Such persons may suffer from manic depression. In the end, when they showed him alleviating his daughter's suffering by injecting a drug into the saline cap, I completely understood why he did what he did. From a psychology perspective, I would like to emphasize the importance of grief counseling. When a family member suffers from a terminal illness, the other members will be exposed to some level of psychological distress. Some mismanaged distress may lead them to extreme circumstances of killing the one who is in deep pain. It is important to identify this at the onset and treat all family members by preparing them for what is to come, "hope" in all its form of subtle existence etc. I loved the movie.

I had watched this once before....
Verified purchase
and as soon as I got into it again I started remembering bits and pieces... painful bits and pieces. My younger sister died of ovarian cancer when she was 44 years old... it hit her quickly and then she was gone... Then I lost both my parents and my two best friends... my mom to a mismanaged bedsore and my dad of a broken heart. One best friend to an asthma attack as she lay in her 14 yr old son's arms and the other one of liver cancer just after he had beaten hepatitis. Heartbreak all around... enough for a lifetime, you would think? Just getting my feet back on the ground and the kicker brought me to my knees. My beautiful 19-year-old grandson was dx'd with a terrible cancer. A terrible cancer that cut him up and pulled him apart. He died 2 weeks after his 21st birthday. If I could have saved any of them from the fear and pain they went through... You're inhuman if you say you wouldn't. An interesting movie that makes you ponder just what you would do for someone you loved.

A Little This A Little That But in the End Great Plot and Acting

Do you remember seeing Meet Mr. Black with Anthony Hopkins and Brad Pitt (1998)? Or how about "Next" with Nicholas Cage (2007)? Or how about Arnold Schwarzenegger in "End of Days? (19990"

This movie is a combination of those three movies. It had me thinking angel vs devil for awhile, definitely had moments of characters splitting up and seeing what happens as in "Next" and definitely will make you think for awhile it's a remake of Meet Mr. Black. I thought for sure the main villain was Death. After I saw that I almost made the mistake of not watching any further. It felt, at first, like another Hollywood movie staring Will Farrell "Instant Rekall," which was a remake of Arnold Schwarzenegger's "Total Recall." Coincidentally Will Farrell himself is in this movie.

So it had all the elements of a little bit of this and a little bit of that thrown together to make a little bit of a new movie.

I was wrong, of course. The movie keeps you guessing and even after all is explained, still has a last minute surprise in the final scene.

This is a cops vs serial killer movie where Anthony Hopkins plays a very good psychic taken in as a consultant for his cop friend. There's a very clever serial killer who's always a step ahead. In the end, I enjoyed this movie tremendously and do indeed recommend it.
