Love crime thrillers, and the storyline for the movie was actually really good. Serial killer who leaves clues taunting the detectives to try and catch him... Unfortunately the words given to you describing the plot of the movie is the best that it gets. Pacino couldn't figure how to pull of that deep Louisiana accent. Seemed to be casted to play a support role, but he either didn't believe in the movie or didn't care because that was some of his worst acting. Karl Urban's character story was a mess, Wife was brutally murdered, what could have been key in the focus of the movie was just lost until it was as if the writer/director was like oh yeah, about that. Brittany Stone was the lone brightspot in the movie. She did a better job "playing detective" (was a reporter) then the two lead actors who were actually playing detectives. Movie had a strong resemblence to the Saw series, go figure as this was also a Lionsgate film. Overall felt the story was promising, but as the movie progressed, the acting, writing, and directing regressed.
A homicide detective brings his partner out of retirement to help catch a serial killer whose crimes are based on the children's game Hangman.
