I've read reviews about this film before and most of them were positive, saying the film was like Seven and Silence of the Lambs. I guess in a way it can be similar to the two films, but is it as good? Not really. I mean, this movie is good, but to say it's as good as the other two films is crap, because those are excellent films. This film leaves you thinking though. It introduces many plot twists and it makes you suspect everyone. Though, due to all the plot twists and such, it left me a little confused and I lost track of what's going on at some parts.

I have to admit that the ending was pretty cool, even though I didn't quite understand it all. It was said that this movie was really gory, but I didn't think it was. There are a lot of body parts lying around and such, but I don't consider that gory. I thought it was very cool how the killer would leave body parts in garbage bags anywhere in the city so people could find it. In one scene the bag was left in an elevator, while in another it was left in a busy highway; very cool.

The film does drag a bit in some parts, but that's to further the plot of the film, so it didn't bother me too much. The acting was pulled off well as usual and so was the directing. There was lots of blood and a few really interesting scenes. I was hoping to see more of the killer in action, but they didn't show much. There aren't any real scary or creepy moments, but a few suspenseful ones. I would have given this film a higher rating, but I was kind of let down because they didn't show as much action or anything from the cop or the killer. I was also hoping to see more gore. I still think it's a good film though.

Compared to such films as Silence of the Lambs and Seven, but doesn't really live up. Though, it's a good film none-the-less. Check this movie out and pay attention to the many plot twists.
