TAKING LIVES (2004) ***

Angelina Jolie and her magnificent lips star as an American serial killer profiler/fish out of water in Canada. She’s tracking a killer who assumes the identities of his victims. She falls in love with a potential victim (Ethan Hawke). Kiefer Sutherland is an obvious red herring and Gena Rowlands is the psycho’s concerned mother. Among the highlights are a nifty automobile death, Angelina topless having sex and a great sick twist ending. Also starring Oliver (Unfaithful) Martinez, Tchecky (Bad Boys) Karyo, and Jean Hughes (Killing Zoe) Anglade as cops. Screenwriter John Bokenkamp also wrote and directed the underrated Preston Tylk, (AKA Bad Seed).
