On a remote island, the FBI has a training program for their psychological profiling division, called "Mindhunters", used to track down serial killers. The training goes horribly wrong, however, when a group of seven young agents discover that one of them is a serial killer, and is setting about slaying the others. Can the few that are left figure out who the killer is in time? Written by
The Hague School was externally transformed into the FBI Academy. The changes included the stars and stripes being attached to the front of the school and a large fence was fabricated. This fence established a perimeter at the entrance with two FBI sentry shelters. See more »
During the underwater shootout at the end of the film, the semi-automatic pistols used would not cycle the rounds as shown. The guns would fire underwater, but after the first shot the guns would jam because there would not be enough pressure generated to overcome the water pressure and fully eject the spent cartridge. A second shot would not be possible until the jam is manually cleared. See more »
MINDHUNTERS may not offer anything that new to the serial killer genre but what it does do is entertain its audience.
Despite watching and knowing that "everyone is a suspect" and being very familiar with the genre myself, I still had a hard time trying to pin down who is responsible for the films gruesome murders as it rolls along. Forget the award recognition that everyone likes to talk about around this time of year, MINDHUNTERS is a fast paced, thrill ride stuffed with talented actors (including Val Kilmer, Christian Slater, and Jonny Lee Miller) that could easily put director Renny Harlin back on the map after the catastrophe that was DRIVEN. So get some popcorn, sit down, and play the game of who is the killer. Trust me, you'll have a good time.
