Ludicrous thriller about FBI profilers-in-training (Jonny Lee Miller, Kathryn Morris, Christian Slater, Will Kemp, Eion Bailey and Patricia Velasquez among them) and a Philadelphia cop (LL Cool J) along for the ride, on a desolate island where they are to participate in an exercise concocted by their borderline sadistic supervisor (Val Kilmer), only to find themselves being killed off one by one for real, as in Agatha Christie's "Ten Little Indians." Director Renny Harlin's blood-splattered shocker has some isolated moments of suspense, and a few surprising jolts, but any elements of this being a respectable whodunit are undermined by the sheer improbability of the proceedings, the unrelenting violence, and the lame dialogue. Much profanity, crude language, intense menace, violence with blood and gore, decapitation, rear nudity, and a brief sexual encounter. 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.
