Mindhunters

Rated R 2005

In this virtual remake of Deep Blue Sea (sans sharks) by the same director, it's not about the characters, or the dramatic tension, or any kind of believability. It's about how cool the death scenes are, and on that score, Renny Harlin is a champ. There's a computer-generated, isolated-island lab; a demographically mixed group of victims (among them Kathryn Morris, Jonny Lee Miller, and Clifton Collins Jr.) who will be picked off one by one; the sense that all these deaths are the result of government irresponsibility; and even a sudden, shocking celebrity death scene. All that, and LL Cool J too. The victims in question are FBI trainees in the art of profiling, but someone is killing them off with preposterous, easily avoidable Rube Goldberg-esque death traps, and it's most likely one of them. The score sucks and the acting is weak, but there are times when certain moviegoers just feel the need to stare far-fetched, blood-drenched death in the eye and laugh. It's here, so have at it.
