Review

A star rating of 4 out of 5.

In this inventive, stylish and gripping movie, tough detective Holly Hunter teams up with agoraphobic psychologist Sigourney Weaver to hunt down a serial killer who duplicates the crimes of his most notorious historical predecessors. Aided by a super-smart script, director Jon Amiel generates unbearable levels of suspense - the bathroom-set climax is a crackerjack shocker - while his stellar leads give top-notch performances. As mimic murder mysteries go, this gives the same year's Se7en a run for its money.
