Our Score
This moody fact-based thriller stars Nicolas Cage as an Alaskan state trooper on the trail of a serial killer and Vanessa Hudgens as a young prostitute who escaped his clutches. Her reluctance to give evidence means Cage has to convince his bosses he's after the right man, while protecting the girl from a murderer intent on finishing the job. Writer/director Scott Walker stays relatively faithful to the details of the 1983 case, while infusing the film with an atmosphere that evokes the Nordic noir genre. Cage's performance is solid but occasionally threatens to spill over into manic overacting, John Cusack is perfect as the "Is he or isn't he?" focus of the investigation, but the mature and nuanced Hudgens impresses most, moving ever further away from the undemanding teen roles of her early career.

Summary

Premiere. An Alaska state trooper tries to bring a serial killer who has been terrorising the Anchorage area for 13 years to justice. When a woman escapes the maniac's clutches, the lawman seeks her help in identifying him, but finds he will have a hard time earning her trust. Fact-based crime drama, with Nicolas Cage, John Cusack and Vanessa Hudgens.
