Summary: The splendor and artistry of the scenery...
...can't save this movie from having a goofy little plot. The whole story, indeed, is purely incidental to the fabulous settings that occur in the participants' minds. The director is known for his MTV videos, and has no experience making movies, so it's understandable that he forgot to flesh out the story and characters. Still, the visuals, while quite horrific in places, are most stunning.

Summary: Freaky
Not what i expected it to be. Alot better than i thought it would be. The whole find the missing girl plot got overused, this movie takes antother more interesting point into a killers mind. Something no other movie has attempted and accomplished as well as this. Jennifer Lopez shows great expression and it makes the movie very realistic.

Summary: Fabulous visuals, decent otherwise
The amusing thing about this movie is that there are two separate plotlines that you think are going to be intertwined, but as the movie goes they separate out and stop affecting each other much. The visuals swing back and forth from visually amazing to repulsive, both in vivid detail, which makes for quite the whiplash effect. Worth repeated viewings just for the effects.

  Grade: A-
Summary: excellent cinematics make up for a jejeune plot
The old 'find the killer' deadline plot rears its ugly head again, but done with unusual style and originality. The visuals are especially impressive for a movie of this nature because essentially anything can happen. Vincent D'Onofrio as usual turns in an outstanding performance of a complete psycho.
