    Harlin's brisk pacing leaves little time for reflection, but the whole house of blood-spattered cards dissolves upon even cursory reflection.
  2. Eye-blowing and mind-numbing.
  3. 25
    It's hard to have sympathy for a movie that tosses in the old shower sneak-up sequence or allows its characters to speak as obviously as possible while standing in a pool of red liquid.
  4. A stale and stupid thriller.
  5. Another unthrilling Renny Harlin thriller.
  6. Turns out to be a thudding dud, crammed with clunky dialogue, bad acting and gruesome but unpersuasive gore. Mindhunters will pass muster with only the most undemanding horror fans.
  7. In 1939, when "Ten Little Indians" was published, Agatha Christie mysteries were the crème de la pop literature. Her fans depended on logic in her stories, and they got it. Mindhunters would have insulted their intelligence, and it should insult yours.

    A contrived, unpleasant and very drawn-out affair.
  9. So stupid it makes "xXx: State of the Union" look like it was written by Nietzsche.
  10. The psychobabble silliness passed off as investigative insight here is laughable at best.
  11. A quintessential Renny Harlin film: a big, dumb, loud action movie.
  12. Mark my words: Mindhunters will do for psycho-thrillers what "Showgirls" did for stripper movies.

    Who knows what might have been if everyone involved had a little more fun with the project instead of just going through the motions?
  14. Reviewed by: David Ng
    In an era of wall-to-wall "CSI," Mindhunters' ghoulish forensic hubbub not only feels tiring but hopelessly redundant.

    My favorite movie. It's got a great mystery storyline, mixed in with some comedy and good acting. Suspenseful. Funny. Awesome! I recommend this movie to everyone who enjoys good, fun movies, rather than "artsy" (boring/stupid) films Full Review »

    Literally my favourite movie ever. i saw mindhunters on tv and then went and bought it on dvd as well and watched it another couple times. i loved every bit of it every single time i watched it. it was violent, scary,funny, and even smart, everything you could want in a movie. film critics are a bunch of idiots.

    I think this film is just great.. it's full of surprises. It keeps you in the suspense. This movie will keep you guessing who is the murderer but then it will prove you wrong. so guess again and again... until you are sure who did it. I really like this film Full Review »
