Taking Lives

High-Def Digest
25 May 2009
  • Conclusion: If you're into flicks about killers, there may be some parts of 'Taking Lives' that you'll find intriguing...they're just smothered by the parts that are a flat out predictable bore and lack both originality and suspense. The video is average, the audio is very well done, while the supplement package is a bit self congratulatory and lacking in any real depth. You can skip this one.

Taking Lives Blu-ray Review

blu-ray.com
22 April 2009
  • Summary: Hollywood has long been infatuated with serial killers... so much so that filmmakers and studio executives actively pursue any script that looses a murderous mastermind on an unsuspecting city. Like vampires before them, serial killers have emerged as modern culture's beasties-du-jour; nightstalking monstrosities who spend their time hunting helpless prey, shattering the hopes and dreams of innocent families, and baffling any agent of righteousness who dares cross their...

Taking Lives

Cinema Blend

  • Excerpt: Taking Lives should have starred Ashley Judd and probably would have if they’d been able to add a healthy helping of Morgan Freeman and removed one scene of particularly heavy petting. But then that scene was probably only added for Angelina Jolie, who can’t stand to be in an R-rated movie without baring a breast. Obviously she, like us, felt that a year or two was far too long to go without displaying her taut body and pert bosoms.

Taking Lives

Horror
20 March 2005
  • Excerpt: Wederom bewijst Hollywood geen orginaliteit meer te hebben. Deze thriller over een FBI agente die een aantal vreemde moorden moet oplossen in Canada kan direct in de prullebak. Het zoveelste filmpje waarin een seriemoordenaar te keer gaat en steeds kleine aanwijzingen aan de FBI geeft.

Få överraskningar i ny seriemördarfilm

29 April 2004
  • Excerpt: Seriemördarfilmer har blivit en genre i egen rätt på samma sätt som skräckfilmer. Vissa inslag är återkommande, vilket inte behöver vara fel, om man kan variera dem på ett nytt och spännande vis. Seriemördare på film känns igen på att de är superintelligenta, underförstått: annars skulle ju poliserna ta dem på en gång, och att de har ett mönster som de till slut åker dit på. I ”Taking lives” gäckar en seriemördare polisen i Montreal.

Taking Lives

Horror
28 April 2004
  • Excerpt: Met groot genoegen ging ik gisteren naar deze film. Het zou een gelijkwaardige film zijn van Seven, Silence of the Lams en Hannibal. Alle drie vond ik ze goed. Oke, het zijn geen specifieke horros maar meer trillers. Toch hebben ze wel degelijk overeenkomsten, metname de special effect qua schrikreactieopwekking en bloedsporen.
