Watched “Taking Lives” in the cinema. Overall it a good movie and worth seeing. But there was something missing. Something, that you can’t put your finger on. After a bit of thinking and talking to Olga, I think I got it. Basically, the whole movie is focused on Illeana (FBI agent played by Angelina Jolie) and Costa (serial killer, played by Ethan Hawke). Both performed very good. There were few other people in the movie, like Costa’s mother and few cops. But relationships between all of them are not touched at all. No history was talled although the feeling is that there is plenty of it going on. It starts to look that director’s cut is much longer then the resulting movie.
