Mindhunters : Movie Review

Mindhunters (2004) - Movie PosterWhat should a viewer expect from a movie that has lain in limbo for more than two years while at least three aborted release dates passed it by? Pretty much what Mindhunters delivers. The only outstanding question is why Dimension decided to dump this film into theaters in May instead of February or August. The mystery/thriller, directed by Renny Harlin and scripted by Wayne Kramer and Kevin Brodbin adds a few unconventional twists to the tired "tracking down a serial killer" plot, but ends up outfoxing itself with a few too many narrative convolutions and contrivances. Mindhunters starts out strong - despite some clunky acting, the first hour is nicely paced and the time passes effortlessly. But the final 45 minute stretch is clumsy, inelegant, and repetitive.
