A sensible movie? Surely not

I watched a really good movie last night with the family - "88 Minutes" starring Al Pacino. Okay, now it's not really a surprise is it? I mean, Al Pacino is superb and he seems to have a good eye for picking movies so...

In ths movie he plays a forensic psychologist who is himself targetted by an anonymous killer on the day a serial killer he helped convict is due to be executed.

It's a tense little thriller this. Pacino is superb as the rock star psychologist with his groupie-like students, and the story actually manages to keep you wondering until near the end. Okay it is possible to pick the ending but there were two other possible threads thrown in - sufficiently well played to make them viable alternates so I really do have to admit I wasn't sure until the reveal.

Good stuff.
