Smart and stylish thriller about an FBI profiler (Angelina Jolie) called in by Canadian authorities to help solve a string of grisly unsolved murders stretching back 20 years and who becomes emotionally involved with a witness (Ethan Hawke) in danger of becoming the serial killer's next victim. Despite a formulaic cat-and-mouse premise and cookie-cutter creepiness, director D.J. Caruso keeps the action briskly paced and viewers on the edge of their seats, crafting a suspenseful screamer which, though not without some graphically disturbing images, shows restraint in depicting the lurid crimes. Recurring gory violence and associated autopsy images, a sexual encounter with partial nudity, frequent rough and crude language. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
