Great actor. He has achieved such heights that can now shoot exactly where it considers it necessary. And nobody can condemn. It is known that the priority he gives it the projects among other things, he there are high fee and comfortable stay. Not love it to leave new York. And in this movie, apparently all together.

Al Pacino, though. externally, especially not strained, but quite confidently handled in my role. A retired policeman who selflessly doing his job, somewhat strange of loneliness. I think this character he was really close.

Well, the film itself, of course. more than mediocre. Not take it al Pacino, well now, who would have watched it? Dialogues, story, direction, cinematography, casting — everything is simplified to the utmost. What to do if the whole story calmly fit in one sentence: older policeman looking for the maniac terrorizing the city. Here you start, the basic plot, and spoiler. Consider that have revealed to you fully all the contents of the tape, without bills. The thing that whoever this maniac here was not — none what it is unaffected. And the only important thing can be gleaned from picture is that US like to play "the gallows".

So, for the the picture is quite uninteresting. He participating in her great actor — no more than from his biography, the subject for discussion of fans and another line in the filmography. Not more.

Everyone knows the game "hangman", when the wrong answers emerges a bridge with a noose? Now imagine that the letters left on the bodies of the victims, each time leaving a clue. A detective story is able to prove that a childhood game can bring a sea of blood.

The story begins with a small scenes, it would seem that the appearance of the characters in the picture, ending the episode makes sense, but that it is strange, it is one piece and... 1 year later. The story follows the face of the journalist who writes an article about the work of the police, and as always, is in the thick of things. Detectives investigating a series of murders that are cyclical. No clues, have to settle for deduction and personal priorities detectives.

The production is excellent. In voltage DC argument, the plot holds the viewer. After a full immersion in the depth of the crimes you are beginning to offer their version. Beautiful movie, and not because of the abundance of victims and strong core, which originates in the past. When people come into a dead end, starts guessing that they might have missed. Here here and make yourself to know the skeletons in the closet.

Whatever the role of al Pacino. Such a wise and experienced detective. It character knowledge and the caution is valid. Impulsive and abrupt Karl urban, who acts at random. And a very clever journalist Brittany snow, surprising his logical thinking regarding crimes. The killer wanted it began to look for these detectives, here is this is commendable. Great busy reception. A new wave of interest suitable in the moment when you realize that the victim was not chosen by accident.

These films improve your mood. Investigation and speculation cling and keep tension. To what will the game of the perpetrator? And who will be the final letter in the "the gallows"?

New from the Director johnny Martin, who have noted in this year's film "Revenge: a love Story" with Nicolas cage, and last year, invisible film "it's N13". In General, it is still a rookie Director, but experienced producer trying to interest its viewers average projects, focusing on the famous names in the cast list. So in this time we see no remarkable Thriller about the confrontation of police with another maniac. "Hangman" — this is a set of standard clichés and all recognizable pieces met with or found in many action-Packed detective: the gloomy atmosphere, the rainy weather, twilight and the cunning serial killer who plays a deadly game with a specific enemy-the police. Here you will not see anything new, original, bold and the caller. To unfortunately, everything is standard and overwritten to holes.

In the story a mysterious maniac calls two officers to participate in the investigation of its crimes. It seems to invite them participate in the game "guess the word". The time, the main character is experiencing the recent loss of his wife, who died from the hands of an unknown. At the time of the investigation, to join him older police officer and courageous journalist, and now they start a real hunt for "very smart" criminal.

Frankly, the trailer evoked a more positive impression than the film itself. First, terribly simple, but sometimes even stupid script that can still in the 90s would have weight, but it now it looks ridiculous, silly and funny. The simplest plot twists and unfounded guesses only cause confusion and quite strong frustration. Absolutely "left" and a foreign journalist not understand why the first minute is actively involved in the investigation into a secret investigation. It is not clear why and on what bases the main character is investigating the case, which involved the murderer of his wife, though even a novice moviegoer knows that it is illegal and the police are not has the right to participate formally in the investigation, if it involved relatives or members of his family. I know if it is made out of the system, but so open on legally — complete nonsense. Secondly, I was very disappointed with the cast because nothing but disappointment, they do not cry. Brand wooden Karl urban and awkward Brittany snow in the frame is pretty funny and do not cause any kind of trust or empathy. Even veteran heavy al Pacino is not saves the day. Nearly 80-year-old actor plays 50-60-year-old fighter against crime, though, and moves already labor and unintelligible words. Really it was impossible to invite more than suitable for the role of actors? Why is everyone so stiff and unconvincing? Do none of the smartest people in the police don't figured out the mysterious word? For example, I in the middle of the film has picked up the letter and made it in the whole word. Thirdly, the formulation is designed only for fans of the ' 90s, so on there anything interesting and significant compared with modern cinema. All very antiquated, zatukhanie, worn and tested hundreds of times.

In General, if you are an ardent fan of al Pacino and I have nothing against low-grade thrillers, then this film is for you, although you can safely pass to spend your time.
