Format: DVD
taking lives is a 2004 film that bombed on its release,while its easy to see why in parts,in other parts its better than alot of films that gain mass success.

The film is about a man who is fed up with his own identity and steals that of others along the way and assumes their identity and their life,a FBI profiler played by angelie jolie is sent up to montreal to find out what she can when the local police start to find bodies with the help of a man who has seen the killer played by ethan hawke.

The film starts well and has the odd jumpy moment that is stylish and certainly this film borrows from the classic movie 'seven' at times,alot of dark settings and eerie moments follow,there is a solid middle to the film as well so all is rolling along nicely and a decent if not totally surprising twist as well,but then for the last 30 minutes or so the film starts to fall on its face alot with a very drawn out ending with cliche lines and all that jazz,plus i find it strange that keifer sutherland is third on the films credits when he is hardly in it,my theory is that he did his parts while in montreal on a lunch break from filming his show '24',well thats my theory anyway,all in all this is a decent movie,worth a watch but beware of a sloppy and tiring ending that takes away from the films strengths considerably.

This was a follow up to the movie The Bone Collector, only in the sense however that her character has developed from being a cop to detective mainly dealing with murders. The plot to this movie is she is asked to go to go Canada and help solve a number of murders that appear at first not to be connected.

From reading previous comments on amazon i was abit wary of how good this movie was going to be as people had not rated it highly. However i thought it was a great moive, with plenty of twists and turns that left you shocked at the out come. Maybe im just more into thrillers or maybe im easily pleased when it comes to movies.

I would definately recommend this.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This film is what it is - a by the numbers serial killer movie, that in its heart seems to think it is cleverer and more stylish than it actually is.
However, the location and the offbeat casting do make it worth watching, with some occasional successful stylistic flourishes, and at least one genuinely jump out of your set moment.
Angelina Jolie is in one of her weakest roles here - the FBI profiler with a secret past, a loner who has her own unusual methods of immersing herself into each case. This is never truly explored more than that two dimensional outline however, and Jolie seems to try very little to flesh that out.
The 'Unrated' aspect involves one sex scene which for once does actually integrate into the plot, but does seem a somewhat gratuitous use of Angelinas well known attributes.
Ethan Hawke is fine but not outstanding in an initially ambiguous role, and Kiefer Sutherland is barely there in a few scenes, so dont be fooled by his front cover billing. In fact the scenes with him make for some of the few highlights of the movie. Olivier Martinez and the other French actors fill out thankless roles adequately.
Enjoy it, its not a bad movie, but dont expect surprises or any sense of enjoyment in the process of filmmaking from anyone involved.

Format: DVD
It's a film of no great merit and is distinctly run of the mill generic genre stuff. It has a strong start, and plods along well enough until it's illogical ending.

The film has one good shock in it that fans of Kevin Bacon in the first Friday the 13th might find familiar.

Keifer Sutherland (third credited) appears in about three scenes totalling about three minutes of screen time.

The movie has already started to evaporate from my memory as I write this the day after watching it. I did enjoy it as I wasn't expecting much and it's better than the terrible Bone Collector which also starred Angelina Jolie. It seems to be based on a generic airport-fiction crime book so you can expect that level of quality from this film.

I don't recommend it but if you're stumped for something better then it should pass the time painlessly enough. It's a time waster, nothing more.

started off well, and it does have a decent story. Where it goes wrong in my opinion is the casting. Jolie is gorgeous, but hardly credible as a top FBI profiler and seems to not have a great deal of interest in her role most of the time. Hawke is pretty poor, as he usually is. Keifer Sutherland is excellent but is wasted in a small role. The 3 detectives are all French, speak English badly and act worse. There are 2 major twists, I am usually bad in seeing these coming, but even I could see the main one well in advance. To be honest, I did not see the other twist at all. I would like to read the book as it is an intriguing story and I am sure could have been done a lot better. I don't know what the "unrated" means...there is one sex scene but it wouldn't be cut if shown late night on TV.

Format: DVD
FBI agent Illeana Scott (Angelina Jolie) is drafted to Montreal to profile a serial killer perpetrating horrific murders. Soon Costa (Ethan Hawke) a witness and art dealer appears and draws a likeness of the killer.

After a few brief nods to criminal profiling (I had hoped profiling would be the key element in the drama instead of a sideshow) we launch into the usual grisly manhunt with relatively predictable twists along the way.

Predictable plot apart the good production values, acting, production and cinematography are wasted by an unexpected, unbelievable and tacky ending that will long live in the memory.

Pity, this could have been an excellent film.
