      • May 14, 2017

        "Someone in this room is a murderer", goes the typical Agatha Christie potboiling thriller, which herein gets a modern update of a twist: "someone in this room of highly trained FBI serial killer profilers is a serial killer profiling us!" Yeah. So, some little fun.

        It's not really smart despite trying, but I guess it will do okay as an entertaining thriller.

        Directed by Renny Harlin, Mindhunters is a psychological horror-thriller that's full of suspense. The story follows a group of FBI profilers-in-training who are sent to a remote island for a training exercise, but things take a turn when it's discovered that there's a killer among them. Starring Christian Slater, Kathryn Morris, Jonny Lee Miller, LL Cool J, and Patricia Velasquez, the film has a solid cast. And, Harlin's directing brings a lot of intensity to the film. Also, the writing is pretty good at setting up intrigue and engages the audience; as the intricate death traps used by the killer intensifies the action and heightens the suspense. However, as with a lot of horror films, the characters aren't fully fleshed out and there are some weaknesses with the plot. Yet overall, Mindhunters is an entertaining and chilling film.

        Though it does boarder as an effective B thriller, it's ultimately far too asinine to work. The plot and overall setup is so ridiculous that it distracts from the atmosphere and sense of tension the film sets out to create. Even LL Cool J's one liners aren't enough to overcome the glaring scripting issues.
