Steve’s Thoughts: Can’t stand Tyler Perry. Like Ed Burns. Matthew Fox looks WEIRD. Cookie cutter serial killer plot – rogue ex-Military makes it personal for detective. Rob Cohen can shoot some action scenes, I’ll admit, but this looks like crap. I love mystery as much as the next guy, but this one’s solved … stay away.
