John Clancy (Anthony Hopkins), still grieving over the death of his daughter from Leukemia years before, is approached by his friend and FBI agent Joe Merriweather (Jeffrey Dean Morgan of THE WALKING DEAD) to help him track down a serial killer. This isn't a typical serial killer (Colin Farrell). In fact, he's a psychic, just like Clancy-and may be even more powerful, always a step ahead of everyone else. The majority of the killings are done quickly, with an ice-pick like device, though there's one scene that looks like something out of a SAW movie.
Although there's a great cast the movie is very much one tone, with very little emotional resonance, particularly in scenes that would work if there was more character development. None of the characters are likable, particularly Merriweather's plastic-looking partner, Katherine Cowls (Abbie Cornish, who is horribly miscast). This should have been a suspenseful, edge-of-your seat thriller and the only thing I wanted to do was get up off my seat and do something else.
