Did You Know?
The cast met with FBI personnel and underwent military weapons training for their roles.
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers):
Towards the end when Gabe handcuffs his chair to the table, it shows Vince shaking his leg when he is supposed to be paralyzed from the waist down.
How about I drive, huh?
Not bad at all
I don't want to give away too much about the story, so I'll stick to the
A small group of FBI-serial killer experts are in a training program. Val
Kilmer is the trainer, an eccentric character named Harris who runs the show
in his own way. The whole idea is putting them in situations where they are
likely to mess up, so that they will think twice before acting to quickly or
jumping to the wrong conclusions in real life.
The idea of this last exercise is to isolate the group on a deserted island,
so they can focus on "profiling" a killer without any help from forensics,
witnesses and so forth. Things take a very unexpected turn when one of the
team gets killed.
It would seem that instead of an exercise they are faced with the real thing
: Profiling and identifying a killer before he kills all of them. Is the
killer an outsider or someone from within their team ?
Stuck on an island, people ending up dead one after another… Yes, there is
a more than a dash of Agatha Christie there. But there are plenty of
interesting add-ons to this Ten Little Indians clone. The acting is pretty
decent, although in my opinion LL Cool J was a little too cool to be
convincing (some of lines really are over-the-top…) and maybe Miss
Valesquez should limit herself to non-speaking parts as her English sounds
Don't go in expecting a masterpiece, just enjoy the ride. This movie is a
fun high-adrenaline action movie /thriller. I give it 8/10
