The Watcher is surprisingly watchable--though it does suffer from an excessive use of arty cinematography.

As the character requirements have it, he's a fine complement for Reeves, somewhat paralleling Eddie Redmayne Nackt style, somewhat providing a counterpoint. Karine Gambier by JustWatch.
It should. Joe Charbanic's "The Watcher" is another rehearse in Hollywood's obsession with serial killer films that call for big stars and bloody murders.
Just a few weeks ago, "Urban Legends: Final Cut" was released, also detailing a psychopath brutally murdering young adults while teasing potential victims with cruel gimmicks.
I am getting very tired of the same old recycled material found in this kind of production. All serial killer movies have a gimmick; this film's is the protagonist's involvement with the killer himself.
The main character, Joel Campbell James Spader , is an FBI agent who recently moved from Los Angeles to Chicago to escape the stress and recollections of his experiences tracking down psychotic murderers, specifically David Allen Griffin Keanu Reeves , who's trademark includes strangling young women with piano strings.
Campbell's past has left him with severe migraine headaches and a dependency on prescription medication, both problems he and Dr.
Polly Peilman Marisa Tomei , a young psychiatrist, are trying to solve. It isn't long before Griffin discovers Campbell and begins playing cat and mouse games again.
Griffin mails Campbell a photo of his next victim and allows 24 hours for the police to find and rescue her.
With the help of two other detectives, Hollis Mackey Chris Ellis and Mitch Casper Robert Cicchini , Campbell is determined to bring down this mad man.
The movie is over the top in most elements. The style teases and interrogates, but is also boastful and distracting.
The protagonist's personality is also exaggerated, supported by blunt dialogue supporting character: "That is gonna be hard.
But the killer himself lacks successful development. The movie lazily introduces Griffin through voice-over narration and silhouetted images; we never really receive a description, but instead intuition and implications.
A big problem I had with the film is that many of its murder sequences consist of a brainless victim screaming helplessly instead of attempting to defend themselves.
The victims stand out more than the main characters here, so they should have much more priority in their murder sequences. They also need further examination so we actually care about someone in the story.
There is a lengthy, exciting, and suspenseful sequence in which a homeless young woman actually puts up a fight to escape the clutches of Griffin, developing tension and one of the most insinuating chase scenes all year.
Campbell quits his job and moves to Chicago , where he is plagued by guilt-induced migraines. Campbell attends therapy sessions with Dr.
Polly Beilman, but otherwise has no friends or social life. Campbell learns that a woman who lived in his apartment building has been murdered.
He does not pay it much attention until he opens his mail and finds that a picture of the woman had been sent to his apartment three days before the murder.
He brings this information to the attention of the detective on the case, Det. Mackie, and comes to the conclusion that the same serial killer has arrived in Chicago.
FBI Special Agent in Charge Ibby tries to persuade Campbell to return to the case, but he refuses. One night Campbell receives a phone call from the killer, David Griffin, who reveals that he followed Campbell to Chicago and wants to rebuild the "rapport" they once had.
Director Joe Charbanic is saddled with an emotionally empty script by David Elliot and Clay Ayers, which matches Reeves's emotionally empty performance quite nicely.
Steve Newton. Jim Lane. If I never see another scene in which a woman is bound and gagged, while her killer struts around the room basking in his own psychotic cleverness, I won't mind a bit.

Roger Ebert September 08, Now streaming on:. During production, the film was called "Driven", but Universal decided to change the title to "The Watcher" when the Stallone racing drama with the same name was announced.
The film caused a bidding war between Universal Pictures, the now defunct Destination Films and Warner Brothers when the distribution rights were up for grabs, courtesy of the pic's independent financiers.
Universal ended up winning the rights, but only just edged out Destination Films, who were eager to bag the film and have a potential hit, since all of their earlier films had been box-office misfires.
James Spader and Keanu Reeves previously starred with Lori Loughlin in The New Kids and The Night Before respectively. Ironically, in those films, Spader played a villain and Reeves played a good guy.
